We are a Stewardship ParishPrince of Peace 8th graders, in the House of St. Paul, sold candy canes during the holidays to raise money to buy books for other less fortunate schools in our Diocese. Additionally, students in the National Junior Honor Society collected books to also donate to schools. Acts of stewardship can be practiced at any age.

The Power of HabitsHabits have a massive impact on our lives. For better or for worse, they can shape our destiny.Resistance loves the negative patterns in your life, the bad habits. The path of least resistance creates negative routines, rituals and rhythms. Do you know what the negative patterns are in your life? Do you procrastinate by watching television? Do you try to spend your way to happiness? Do you eat when you are not hungry to deal with emotions? Do you drink to escape? Do you constantly check your e-mail or social media to avoid doing the most important things? Do you keep spending time with people even though you know they are not helping you become the-best-version-of-yourself?We also have negative habits of the mind. Do you worry about things that you have no control over? Do you obsess about the worst possible outcome in situations? Are you constantly judging yourself and others? Do you keep returning to feelings of guilt even after God has forgiven you? Do you dwell on things in the past you wish you had done differently? Do you blame yourself even when something is not your fault? Do you doubt yourself constantly? (Resisting Happiness, Matthew Kelly)As we begin this Lenten journey together, what questions can we begin to let go? We all have these questions and habits that crowd our thinking and daily routines each day - how can we begin to feel a sense of peace and let go of things and feelings that are out of our control? Let’s try together to give up just one bad habit.
