SCRIPTURE SUNDAY 2017
Mark your calendar for Scripture Sunday 2017 in the Diocese of Owensboro! In Pope Francis' apostolic letter, Misericordia et misera, he explained that the Year of Mercy reminds us that mercy isn't only for a specially designated year, but it part of the ongoing life of the Church. He said it would be a good idea if "every Christian community, on one Sunday of the liturgical year, could renew its efforts to make the Sacred Sciptures better known." Following up on Pope Francis' suggestion, Bishop William F. Medley has designated the third Sunday of October as Scripture Sunday in the Diocese of Owensboro. This year it falls on Sunday, October 15th. Watch for more information, and visit owensborodiocese.org/scripturesunday
