October 4 Stewardship Reflection

27th Sunday in Ordinary Time

“The stone the builders rejected has become the corner stone…” - MATTHEW 21:42

Jesus was rejected by the religious and political leaders of his day, as well as ordinary citizens.  Living a stewardship lifestyle may cause you to be “rejected” by others in today's society.  For example, saying grace before a meal in a restaurant may attract some strange looks from some.  But to others it is sign that God is alive and well!


Event Date:  October 4, 2020

Expiration Date:  October 5, 2020

(For October 10-11 bulletin)

October 11 Stewardship Reflection

28th Sunday in Ordinary Time

“My God will supply whatever you need…” - PHILIPPIANS 4:19

God really does provide for those who are grateful and generous.  This is very difficult for people that don't live a stewardship lifestyle to believe.  People are skeptical and say it's just coincidence.  If you are skeptical, try living a stewardship lifestyle for just one month - be generous with your gifts of time in prayer, talent in charitable works and treasure and see how God provides for your needs.


Event Date:  October 11, 2020

Expiration Date:  October 12, 2020

(For October 17-18 bulletin)

October 18 Stewardship Reflection

29th Sunday in Ordinary Time

“Render therefore to Caesar the things that are Caesar's and to God the things that are God's.”

 -  MATTHEW 22:21

Everything we are and everything we have belongs to God.  We aren't “owners” of anything, we are merely “stewards” of the gifts God has given each of us.  All God is asking is that we give back a portion of what He gave us.  This is the essence of Stewardship.  God should be our first priority in everything.  All else comes second, especially our money.

Event Date:  October 18, 2020

Expiration Date:  October 19, 2020

(For October 24-25 bulletin)

October 25 Stewardship Reflection

30th Sunday in Ordinary Time

“You shall love the Lord, your God, with all your heart, with all your soul and with all your mind.”               - MATTHEW 22:37 

Do you put other “gods” before God?  Is your love of money, power, status, comfort or some personal possession greater than your love for God?  Do you really recognize that everything you have and that everything you are is a gift from God?  The good news - it's not too late to put God first in all things in your life.

Catholic Charities Needs Volunteers: Farm Gleaning

Please help Catholic Charities feed the hungry by volunteering to glean crops on a One Day Mission trip to the northern neck of Virginia. “Gleaning” is the traditional biblical practice of gathering crops that would otherwise be left to rot in the fields or be plowed under after harvest. The freshly gleaned produce will be transported back to Catholic Charities' St. Lucy Project Food Warehouse and given to those in need. Mission trips will be offered on the first Saturday of each month through November and are a great service project for church groups, families, book clubs and confirmation students (with parental supervision).
