The November-December 2021 issue of Catholic Herald magazine has been published. The theme for this issue is "Hope through stewardship." The digital edition of the magazine is available at https://www.scd.org/catholic-herald-magazine.
In the cover story of this issue, Luke and Sophia Anderson, graduates of Holy Spirit School in Fairfield and members of Holy Spirit Parish, share how witnessing poverty firsthand in Mexico motivated them to establish Para Ti Global. Six years later, Para Ti Global (PTG) is carrying out many projects managed by the Anderson family, pursuing the mission of helping children in poverty through one or more of three pillars: provide, prepare and protect.
Other stories in this issue include Bishop Jaime Soto's column on: "Speak sincerely, listen respectively, and discern together"; St. Patrick Parish in Grass Valley embraces lexicon of stewardship; the Newman family of Holy Trinity Parish in El Dorado Hills shares gifts in service to the larger community; Works of Mercy ministry at Good Shepherd Parish in Elk Grove cares for the homeless and accompanies fellow disciples; generous parishioners bring "welcoming face" to Our Lady of the Assumption Parish in Carmichael; and grief is like a fingerprint.
In the Last Word column, Msgr. James Murphy reflects on the cross and Dorothy Day's political philosophy
