        June 30 Stewardship Reflection

        13th Sunday in Ordinary Time
        “For you were called to freedom, brothers and sisters. But do not use this freedom as an opportunity for the flesh; rather serve one another through love.”   (GALATIANS 5:13)
        We like to celebrate the fact that we are free to “live the good life.” But Jesus calls us to a different kind of freedom.  St. Paul reminds us that Jesus sets us free so that we can serve one another, share our gifts and promote God’s work here on earth to glorify His name and not honor ourselves.

        July 7 Stewardship Reflection

        14th Sunday in Ordinary Time
        “He said to them, ‘The harvest is abundant, but the laborers are few…’” LUKE 10:2
        As Catholics we are all called to serve.  However, many of us are unsure of what our charisms or gifts from the Holy Spirit are to help build God’s Church. Through prayer we are able to discern how God is calling us. The next time your pastor or fellow parishioner asks you to join a committee, ask God first, if that is what He wants you to do with your gifts.

        Event Date: July 7, 2019

        (For July 13-14 bulletin)

        July 14 Stewardship Reflection

        15th Sunday in Ordinary Time
        “Jesus said to him, ‘Go and do likewise.’”  LUKE 10:37
        This was Jesus’ command at the end of the Good Samaritan story. Did you know that the Samaritans and Jews despised each other. The moral of the story is to love our neighbor.  That means loving someone you may not know or someone that looks different than you or someone that you don’t like. All without expecting anything in return.

        July 21 Stewardship Reflection

        16th Sunday in Ordinary Time
        “…I am a minister in accordance with God’s stewardship given to me to bring to completion for you the word of God.”  COLOSSIANS 1:25
        We are all called to evangelize – to continuously grow in our relationship with Jesus and to share it with others.  We may not be called to evangelize like St. Paul, but we should look for opportunities to share our faith with those closest to us, like our family, friends and neighbors.  Pray for the courage to share your faith the next time the opportunity arises.

        (For July 27-28 bulletin)

        July 28 Stewardship Reflection

        17th Sunday in Ordinary Time
        “Ask and you will receive; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.”  LUKE 11:9
        Jesus assures us that if we ask, God will take care of what we need. The problem is that our culture often confuses what we really need with what we simply want. Many people need very little. However, we usually want so much more. A good steward only asks God for what he needs.
