FROM FATHER KRAYNAK....
STATEMENT FROM THE CATHOLIC BISHOPS OF THE UNITED STATES
IN RESPONSE TO THE VIOLENCE IN CHARLOTTESVILLE

"As we learn more about the horrible events of (last Saturday) our prayer turns to the people of Charlottesville who offered a counter example to the hate marching in the streets. Let us unite ourselves in the spirit of hope offered by the clergy, people of faith, and all people of good will who peacefully defended their city and country.

We stand against the evil of racism, white supremacy and neo-nazism. We stand with our sisters and brothers united in the sacrifice of Jesus, by which love's victory over every form of evil is assured. At Mass, let us offer a special prayer of gratitude for the brave souls who sought to protect us from the violent ideology displayed (on Saturday). Let us especially remember those who lost their lives. Let us join their witness and stand against every form of oppression."

Stewardship Thought

August 20, 2017 - "For the gifts and the call of God are irrevocable."  -- Romans 11:29.

God has a special mission in mind for each of us. He has given us the gifts we need to accomplish that mission. We are called to be good stewards by using those gifts to do the work that He has planned for each of us. If we deny our gifts or fail to use them as God calls us to use them, then some part of His work will be left undone. It takes faith to hear God's call in our lives. And His call takes us on unexpected paths of deeper trust and love.
