Often, teachers encourage learners to seek information in the form of asking questions. Students at St. Anne-Pacelli in Columbus were asked to ponder what question they would ask the bishop if given the chance. Bishop Gregory J. Hartmayer, OFM Conv. then answered their submitted questions on stage in front of a crowd of around 430 supporters of Catholic education at the Deimel Ball on January 27.

When World War I ended, the science of “Boyology” began. Largely sponsored by the Knights of Columbus, “Boyology” had one chief goal: to produce men of good character who would keep the world away from evils that were sprouting up in the 1920’s post-war era. From one end of the United States to the other, the K. of C. was keeping a watchful eye on what was happening to American youth.

On December 2, 2017, Bishop Gregory J. Hartmayer, O.F.M. Conv., challenged Savannah’s 2018 deacon candidates to “lead by example, to witness to the beauty and mystery of the liturgy in order to help others participate in these sacred mysteries” as they were duly installed into the Order of Acolyte. The installation, held at Immaculate Conception Church in Dublin, marks the end of the fourth year of a five-year formation, and is the final ceremony before the class’ ordination next May.

Lay volunteers serving in prison ministry have felt the call to minister to the imprisoned, perhaps the least of our brothers and sisters. In so doing, they are both bringing Jesus into the prison through Holy Communion, and are visiting Jesus in each and every inmate and officer they meet. This is a unique ministry, one which challenges each volunteer to exercise his or her faith in a personal way in a communion service in prison.
