    Dynamic Catholic, Alive! Mary as a Model

    We may know a lot about the Blessed Virgin Mary - celebrating her Immaculate Conception, her birth, the Annunciation, her glorious Assumption, etc. How can we sum it up? This way: Mary is the only human creature who shows us that God’s original plan for us - that we could always choose in accord with His Divine Will - was possible. Think about it - without Mary, how many of us would be wondering if any of us could get close? Let her “yes” inspire us. (CCC 484-507)

    Vocation Prayer Chalice If you are willing to have the Vocation Prayer Chalice in your

    home for a week, please call the parish office.

    When we reflect on how blessed we are to have our basic needs met such as food, shelter, water,

    and electricity, we need to keep in mind our neighbors who are not as fortunate. I want to thank all those who gave donations last weekend to help the needy in our community. We have already begun providing assistance to those in need. As you can see from the offering report below, we are behind in meeting our parish budget at this time. If you are behind in your tithing, the end of the year is a good time to catch up. Recently the Archdiocese had our parish assets ap- praised. This is done every five years. Below are the results of what the replacement value is at this time: Let us pray for each other this week.

    Stewardship Awareness “Therefore, every tree that does not bear good fruit will be cut down and thrown into the fire.” Matthew 3:10 Do you bear good fruit for Christ? Or do you spend your time, talent and treasure constantly acquiring more toys, clutter and junk. Our time, our talent and our treasure are gifts that God has given us. What we do with them is our gift back to God. What gifts are you planning to give to the Lord during this upcoming Christmas season.
