Catholics urged to share their ‘view from the pew’

People are invited to share their experiences of being Catholic in The Record’s monthly “A View from the Pew” column, which is published on page 5.

Sal Della Bella, who coordinates the column and serves as director of evangelization for the Archdiocese of Louisville, noted that in his ministry, “I have heard many stories that celebrate the richness of our Catholic Christian faith — stories of hope, inspiration and joy.

“I believe that these and similar stories are worth sharing,” he said. “They can provide for us living examples of encounters with Christ as well as effective ways to proclaim the good news of our faith.”

Della Bella also offered ideas for topics, such as: “Why is my faith important to me? What is most meaningful to me as a Catholic today?  What would I like my parish to better understand about me and/or my family? What are my greatest hopes?”

He also suggested people consider asking themselves and sharing, “How have I come to experience God through the Catholic Church? What does my relationship with Jesus Christ mean to my faith? How do I live out my faith as a Catholic?”

For more information, contact Della Bella at

Send submissions for “A View from the Pew,” which should be about 500 words, to Della Bella’s email address, along with your name, parish, contact information and a high resolution digital photo.
