Fr. Fenstermaker Writes About Evangelization and the Catholic Church

Father James Fenstermaker

Rev. James Fenstermaker, C.S.C., was recently featured in the Easton Journal discussing evangelization in the Catholic Church.

Fr. Fenstermaker, Pastor of Holy Cross Parish in South Easton, Mass., was a guest columnist published in the Feb. 11, 2013, edition of the newspaper’s website. He outlines a brief history of the Church’s missionary efforts, including those of the Congregation of Holy Cross, and draws a parallel with Pope John Paul II’s call for a “new evangelization” based on the New Testament.

“I think of the sisters, brothers and priests of my own religious order, the Congregation of Holy Cross, who were among the first Christian missionaries to Bengal, now Bangladesh, and to the indigenous of northeast India, as well as the mission territory of the United States in Indiana, where a boarding school for native American children developed into the University of Notre Dame, and of Oregon, where we established the University of Portland,” Fr. Fenstermaker wrote.

His entire reflection also is available on Stonehill College’s website.
