Will You Submit Catholic Leisure Articles?

By Dr. Jeff Mirus (bio - articles - email) | Apr 04, 2006

As you may have noticed, we now have five colorful, entertaining articles posted for our Catholic Leisure Project. In addition to being worthwhile in their own right, these articles are designed to serve as examples of the kind of material we’d like others to submit. The question is: Will we get such submissions?

Please check out this new material. You’ll find one article for each of our five main sections: Entertainment, Activities, Heritage, Places, and Festivity.

The purpose of the Project is to help all of us “live Catholic the rest of the time”, when we’re neither working nor fulfilling any other basic responsibility. Much that is best and most fully human in our lives is defined by how we understand and approach leisure, which in turn has an enormous impact on cultural health.

But the Project we have in mind cannot succeed unless we have a large number of Catholic voices sharing their leisure experiences: their travel, pilgrimages, crafts and hobbies; their heritage, celebrations, hospitality and customs; their knowledge of the arts and wholesome entertainment. For example, I have one hobby I can write about, and now I’ve written about it. But it won’t be for everyone, and we don’t want an endless series of articles on that one topic.

So we need our readers to get excited enough to become contributors. If you can share your interests and experiences in a way similar to the initial sample articles, and can provide us with graphics to go with your prose, we can always polish up the presentation for you. The important thing is to share your ideas and insights for living more abundantly, always for the greater glory of God.

Please send your ideas and articles to [email protected].
