We are a Stewardship Parish
The four pillars of stewardship: Prayer, Formation, Service and Hospitality help parishioners witness, experience and live the stewardship way of life. These four pillars support the parish community and we are all called through our baptismal promises to contribute our time, talent and treasure to them.

Cultivate Quiet Moments
Part 1 of 3As a busy mom, my default setting is work; it goes everywhere with me. But last week I blew it. I got unexpectedly stuck in a waiting room for four hours with nothing to do except file my nails. For five full minutes, I wallowed in the activity. After that I sat, like everyone else, taking solace in my phone. I texted a few people: “Help, I’m trapped!” Called others: “Call me back. Please, please, please.” And tried to answer email: “As soon as home, will answer your question. Right now typing with one fingr.” Not much work got done, but I did a good job of faking myself out.Three hours in, I spied my rosary in my purse. Praying the Rosary is on my daily to-do list. I admit that my first thought was Yes! I can check it off! As I prayed, however, a different feeling took over. The Rosary, with its meditation and repetition, has a way of slowing you down, quieting your mind, and reminding you that you’re not as in charge as you think you are. I exited the noisy waiting room into the quiet hallway beyond to be with Jesus and Mary. To be continued...(Susie Lloyd, Catechist)Take a moment to reflect on this point from ‘The Prayer Process’....AWARENESS. Revisit the times in the past 24 hours when you were and were not the-best-version-of-yourself. Talk to God about these situations and what you learned from them.
