Fr. Martin Latiff, M.C., is talking at Theology on Tap - Temecula Valley on Wednesday, May 8, at 6:30pm at Baily's Old Town Temecula, about the importance of solid catechesis in the parish and in the home.
Poor catechesis is affecting the youth in the Church today. Statistics show that with each generation, more and more people are leaving the Church. In fact, "ex Catholics" are the second largest denomination (if it was one) there is, behind the Church herself! "Nones" outnumber Catholics in the United States this year for the first time in history.
This is a direct indictment on the US Catholic Church today, and we must be active in doing our part in reversing this trend, even here among our own community.
Fr. Martin is a priest of Miles Christi, a religious order founded to work with youth: https://www.mileschristi.org/
