Help us participate in a national survey of parish life

Our parish has been selected to participate in a national study for the Catholic Church! Please help us by completing a 10-15 minute survey.   Please copy the following link and visit: http://www.surveygizmo.com/s3/1707977/  
We will have paper versions of the survey to fill out over the next two weeks after the weekend Masses.  

Your feedback will be a great gift to the Church Universal and especially our parish as we seek to help you grow in your relationship with Jesus.  The national survey is being conducted by the Catholic Leadership Institute.

Sacred Reading: The Seven Storey Mountain

Every month, we've been reading a wonderful book about faith and spirituality.  This month we will be reading The Seven Storey Mountain by Thomas Merton.  This is a wonderful book, a spiritual classic, that tells the story of Merton's search for faith and peace.   Many, many people have found this book to be a powerful story and an inviation to grow deeper in their faith.  Come and read along with us! 

We treasure... We celebrate... You are invited...

Stewardship is the faith-filled understanding that all we have and all that we are is a gift from God - our time, our talent, our money and even the gift of life itself. Psalm 111 asks, "How can we make a return for the goodness of God?"  We show our gratitude for these gifts by returning a portion of them back to God.  In the end, the sharing of our time with God, the giving of a portion of our treasure to support the needs of others and our church, the use of our talents to build up God's kingdom here in our midst are all expressions of our gratitude to the One who have given us everything.  Thank you, Lord!
