Archbishop brings missionary discipleship message to Ferguson


In an informal setting on the second floor of the Ferguson Brewhouse, Archbishop Robert J. Carlson found an audience of Catholics receptive to the message of becoming missionary disciples.

The commission of missionary discipleship was the primary focus of the "Convocation of Catholic Leaders: The Joy of the Gospel in America," a gathering in Orlando, Fla., earlier this month attended by Archbishop Carlson and 19 delegates of the archdiocese.

Mixing faith, social time a needed respite for Ferguson community

Blessed Teresa of Calcutta parishioner Effie Wolfberger, age 90, claimed to be the oldest participant talking about faith issues at the first Brehouse Theology in Ferguson Nov. 11. She sat with friends, including Dorothy Frese.

Jeanne Baer is pretty convinced God had a plan.

Earlier this year, Baer, a pastoral associate at Blessed Teresa of Calcutta, and members of the Ferguson parish's Engaged Church Committee had been brainstorming ideas to help engage the Catholic community beyond church walls. A theology-on-tap-type event was proposed. Something to get young people talking about faith issues in a social setting. The historic district on South Florissant Road would be a perfect setting to execute the idea.

And then Ferguson happened.
