One of the principle objectives of the Second Vatican Council was the restoration of unity among all Christians. “Christ the Lord founded one Church and one Church only” (Decree on Ecumenism, #1).
EXCLAIM! reaches the entire Christian Church. Participants are encouraged to bring friends and neighbors from all walks of life. Friends and family will come to see local performers. With a national name performing on the main stage, Christians of all denominations will come to EXCLAIM! and see their favorite Christian musician right here in Toledo.
We will reach out to Catholics who no longer go to church. They will have opportunities to see how the Catholic Church is real, relevant, and alive. They will be able to obtain information from parishes where they live and reconnect with their Catholic roots.
Other Christian denominations will be invited to stay for Mass, pray together, and witness the beauty of a Catholic liturgy.
