April 28 Stewardship Reflection

Second Sunday of Easter
“Jesus said to them again, ‘Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, so I send you." (JOHN 20:21)
Peace – the first gift of the risen Lord. Just as Jesus sent the apostles out into the world, so too, He sends us.  As disciples of Jesus, we are called to be grateful and generous. Look for opportunities to share His peace, not only within our local parish boundaries, but outside of them as well. In giving, we receive the peace of Jesus Christ.

Event Date: April 28, 2019
Expiration Date: April 29, 2019

May 5 Stewardship Reflection

3rd Sunday of Easter
“Peter was distressed that Jesus had said to him a third time, ‘Do you love me?’ and he said to him, ‘Lord, you know everything; you know that I love you.’ Jesus said to him, ‘Feed my sheep.’” (JOHN 21:17)
All of us are challenged to show our love for Jesus and others.  Discern how God is calling you to use your time in prayer, your talent in charitable works and your treasure to assist those who in need. Remember that giving is an act of worship and helps advance the mission of our parish and greater Church.

May 12 Stewardship Reflection

4th Sunday of Easter
“The disciples were filled with joy and the Holy Spirit.”  (ACTS 13:52)
The disciples heard Our Lord’s call and were able to spread the Gospel message with strength and vitality. We, too, can experience that same joy if we make room for the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts. When we use our gifts in the way that God intends, He fills us with supernatural joy. A joy that others notice and are attracted to.

May 19 Stewardship Reflection

5th Sunday of Easter
“I give you a new commandment: love one another.  As I have loved you, so you also should love one another."  (JOHN 13:34). It is easy to love someone when they love you back. But it takes strength and courage to love someone when we feel unappreciated, used or feel our opinion doesn’t matter. It takes courage to “love my neighbor” when he may be someone I don’t like, someone I don’t know or someone that doesn’t look like me. 

Event Date: May 19, 2019
Expiration Date: May 20, 2019

(For May 25-26 bulletin)

May 26 Stewardship Reflection

6th Sunday of Easter
“…do not let your hearts be troubled or afraid.” (JOHN 14:27). Our limited human understanding cannot begin to understand the immense power of God. Instead of trusting in God, we think we can control every outcome. Do you want to make God laugh? Tell Him your plans. The next time worry, anxiety or fear creeps in, thank God for all He has given you and trust that He has a better plan for you.
