Stewardship Reflection for this Sunday

“Follow me and I will make you fishers of men.”   – Mark 1:17

Jesus’ call to “Follow me” is a call to all Christians!  The call is in the here and now, in our present circumstances, not when we think we are “ready” or have everything in order.   Good stewardship of our God-given gifts means that things aren’t always going to go according to our schedule and that God has a much better plan in store for each of us.

COVID-19 Exposure Announcement

For this light momentary affliction is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison, as we look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen. For the things that are seen are transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal.

2 Corinthians 4:17-18

Stewardship Reflection for this Sunday

“Jesus turned and saw them following him and said to them, ‘What are you looking for?’”  – John 1:38

What are you looking for?  Are you wasting your time looking for the material comforts of the world? Or, is your heart longing for something deeper that can only be found by spending time with God?  Take time, each day, in silence and ask the Lord what it is that He wants you to do.

A Seven Week Parish Lenten Study

Sometimes we get so caught up in the depth of our faith that we forget what it was like to first wrestle with the big questions – Who am I? What am I searching for? What’s our shared story? Who is Jesus? Why do we need a Church? Is there a God? We all need to get back to the basics to make sure the foundation is strong.

Stewardship Reflection for this Sunday

“And a voice came from the heavens, ‘You are my beloved Son; with you I am well pleased.’” – Mark 1:11

Through our baptism, we too, are daughters and sons of God.  We are disciples of Jesus.  As true disciples we are called to actively participate in our Catholic faith, not just be mere bystanders.  This means working in collaboration with Holy Spirit and discerning how we are being asked to use our gifts.  Using our gifts for the benefit of others and not just for our own interests and comfort.

Stewardship Reflection for this Sunday

“..they fell down and worshipped him.  Then they opened their treasures and offered him gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh…” – Matthew 2:11

Notice the order of events in the Magi’s visit.  First, they knelt before Jesus and prayed to Him.  Then they presented Him with their gifts.  We, too, must take time to pray before we present our gifts to the Lord.   We never know what God may be asking us to share!
