More children activities so they can grow in the faith

We feature those unheralded persons in the parishes committed to selling this publication. We appreciate all who have contributed to this ministry over the years, helping to deliver this paper into the hands of the people in the pews.


Zarah Amour – La Divina Pastora RC, Siparia


Q: How long have you been involved in selling the paper?

I have been selling since I was 14, so about six years now.


Q: Why did you get involved?

After I did Confirmation, I started assisting my family with the sale of The Catholic News at the family Mass in our parish. As they got older and took on other responsibilities at church, I took over fully.


Q: What is your approach to encourage people to buy or read the paper in your parish?

I enjoy greeting and engaging with parishioners as they enter the church. It gives me an opportunity to meet with most of the community and answer any questions they might have. Since the table where we sell the News is at the entrance of the church, my main approach is to interact and engage with parishioners as they enter to get their interest.


Q: How do you think the paper can be better promoted to Catholic faithful?

I think bringing back more activities for children would motivate parents to purchase the News not just for themselves, but for their children. This way they can all learn and grow in their faith.


Q: To be a seller you most probably also read the paper. What are your favourite pages or columns?

My favourite column is the Archbishop’s column. He always discusses interesting topics and gives insight on them that is helpful to me.

Look out for more as we continue to salute our sellers.
