Awaken Ministry

  • Description: "Awaken Ministry is a monthly outreach currently hosted by various Catholic parishes in the Archdiocese of Detroit, MI. The basic format of an Awaken experience is three-fold: praise and worship, the preached Gospel, and Eucharistic Adoration. Each Awaken event begins with upbeat praise and worship music lead by our band and worship leaders, Jeff Pipas and Andy Gardner, followed by dynamic preaching of the Gospel message, and culminating with a profound experience of Eucharistic Adoration, which is accompanied by more praise and worship music and a time of silent adoration. Key elements such as special lighting and sound, video screens displaying worship imagery and song lyrics, a creatively enhanced environment along with contemporary praise and worship music, are all meant to foster and enhance the worship experience. Following this time of praise, worship, prayer and adoration, there is an opportunity for fellowship and hospitality, where those in attendance can share with one another about what they have just experienced."

50 Shades of Grey and Facebook's Influence

  • Description: "The Hollywood Reporter reports that Parents Television Council blasted NBC’s Today show for airing the new Fifty Shades of Grey movie trailer during the 8 am hour yesterday. The PTC’s Melissa Henson had this to say: 'We're talking about basically the equivalent of a dime-store trashy romance novel. Essentially, what Today's doing is they're promoting what people refer to as 'mommy porn.' That's what it boils down to. Today is helping to promote mommy porn. That's a pretty poor judgment on their part in terms of their attitude toward their audience.'"
