Stewardship: Parishioners Answering God’s Call in HospitalityNeighbors of a parish family were having a difficult time. After 2 heart surgeries the husband was having trouble dealing with his situation. He didn’t want well-meaning friends to visit and discuss his illness nor give him spiritual advice. He just wanted silent companionship and to give his family a break. Our parishioner, a husband, went to their house one night and they just sat and watched a music channel together discussing the finer points of rock-and-roll. Not much effort involved, but a thoughtful gesture of hospitality.Please submit your stewardship story examples to email@example.com. They may be edited for space consideration.
Year-Round Sunday SchoolSummer lends a great time to continue to grow in our faith through our Summer Programs. Sunday School happens year round with a Gospel-based curriculum, for children age K3-1st grade during both the 8:30 and 11:00 Masses. Each week your child will learn and incorporate the weekly Gospel into an interactive lesson, craft and music and movement. There is no registration for Summer FUN School and no registration charge - just come by the Religious Education office to join a class. Hope to see you during these warm summer months! Please contact Megan Everett, firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
Praying During Summer Trips and Fun.......Annoyances and inconveniences can crop up at any time. Summer doesn’t automatically translate into bliss. However, the traffic jams, whiny children, bug bites, sunburn, or unexpected delays and mishaps can be turned around and used for good. We have a perfect opportunity to “offer it up” to God and ask Him to use a small sacrifice or inconvenience on our part for the good of others and the sanctification of our families, rather than allowing the situation to cause us to become annoyed or angry. Let’s keep our cool and turn to prayer.These prayer times amid struggle or inconvenience are not only spiritually enriching and gifts for the recipient, they also become beautiful and memorable teachable moments; pointing our children to patience and thinking of others during trials, helping them turn to prayer rather than to allow the negative situation to get the best of them.Whatever your family plans may be this summer, whether it will be sitting on a blanket in your back yard reading a book under the apple tree or jetting across the country to visit your relatives or to a fun vacation spot, be sure to have fun, enjoy, and pause often to offer your joyful heart to the Lord! Your example of prayer throughout your summer days will inspire your family and the others whom God puts in your midst all summer long. Have a happy and holy summer!
