From the Pastor

September - Celebrating the Sacrament of Marriage.


"God who created man out of love also called him to love - the fundamental and innate vocation of every human being. For man is created in the image and likeness of God who is himself love. Since God created him an and woman, their mutual love becomes an image of the absolute and unfailing love with which God loves man. It is good, very good, in the Creator's eyes. And this love which God blesses is intended to be fruitful and to be realized in the common work of watching over creation: (Genesis 1:28, 1:31) "And God blessed them and God said to them: 'Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth and subdue it." Catechism of the Catholic Church 1604

The month of September our parish will be celebrating the Sacrament of Marriage. We wish to emphasis that marriage is a vocation, a calling from God to a life of ministry and prayer with the Church to bring others closer in their relationship with Jesus Christ. During this coming month our parish will be blessing all married couples at mass and honoring the longest married couple at each mass. At each mass you will hear a witness by married couples on how they have lived the Sacrament of Marriage. We will also be blessing those widows and widowers who have lived the Sacrament of Marriage and continue to enjoy the grace they have received by the sacrament.

Just as a priest or religious is called in their vocation to a ministry in the church. Those who are called to the married state are called to be ministers of God's love through Jesus Christ in the Sacrament of Marriage.

Stewardship Thought
September 16, 2018 - "Whoever wishes to come after me musr deny himself, take up his cross, and follow me."  -- Mark 8:34.

When we truly believe that all we have is a gift from God, then we must be willing to give up some things so that we can share our blessings as God intended. Living a stewardship lifestyle means not only being responsible for our own life, but the lives of others as well.
