If you are new to our website, we invite you to explore!
The One Body One Spirit Project is dedicated to becoming a powerful catalyst for building relationships within the global catholic community.
So, with the support of hundreds of people around the world, in 2007, we were able to send one pilgrim to a Catholic Daily Mass,
in 365 different churches,
in 38 countries,
in one year!
Each of these churches has a story, which our pilgrim, David Heimann, captured through geo-referenced pictures and blogs. To go to the blogs and see the pictures, click here. We invite you to join our 'online community' by registering with us to leave comments or questions about the pictures and stories.
We are also excited to announce our partnership with www.MyCatholicVoice.com, where we have created the One Body One Spirit Community. It is designed to be a way for you to connect with other Catholics around the world. We hope you join us there!
As we continue to plan for the next phase of the One Body One Spirit Project, we are extremely happy to share with you, to the extent that we can, the resources that we have gathered. If you a part of a parish or school that would like us to give a presentation on Global Solidarity in the Catholic Church, we are excited to make an appointment to visit your classroom, parish speaker series, catechesis, religious education program, youth group, etc. Send an email to our Executive Director, David Heimann by clicking here.
In the coming months, check back with this website to download free lesson plans which can be used in classroom or other educational environments. These lesson plans will make specific use of the over 7,000 photos that Ad Sodalitatem has published online of the Catholic Church in the world.
In the interim, you can download access to these photos to be used in your parish or school environment. Please note that the photos are copyrighted.
Also, if you have found any of our resources helpful in your ministry, we invite you to contact us or leave a comment here on our website, so that others can join that conversation!
