Stewardship Thought
October 13, 2018 - "It is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than for one who is rich to enter the kingdom of God."  -- Mark 10:25.

Jesus uses tough language that we may not want to hear. But, we are all called to be generous with all our gifts. Not just the ones we pick and choose, but all our gifts; our time in prayer to God, our talent in participating in parish ministries and our treasure supporting our local parish and other charities.
