Baptism

Locating the ‘glocal’ in baptism

 | 

Most of us probably traveled “home” at some point during the holidays. Why? Because there is no place like home. 

But if your family is like many today, you can have one son with three family units to visit, another son with four, a 90-year-old mother who lives half the year with one of your siblings and the other half with another, and more. Divorce and distance are common guests at the holiday table.

Converts find moral support in Catholicism

 | 

Some 650 catechumens from 32 parishes attended a special ceremony led by Archbishop Paul Bui Van Doc of Ho Chi Minh City Archdiocese at the pastoral center on March 30. Over 350 people among them are expected to receive the sacraments of Christian initiation to become Catholics on this year’s Easter Vigil, April 19.

Some of them shared their faith experiences with NCR.
