Our Stewardship Program continues this week as we focus on
how our Parish Community celebrates.
Fr John will speak to us about the significance of how our
parish comes together as a community to celebrate the
Eucharist. To quote Pope Francis in the National Catholic
Reporter: Celebrating the Eucharist should make a
difference in the way a parish community lives. At Mass,
Christ gathers people around him to nourish us with his word
and his life.
There are still individually addressed envelopes which contain the Program brochure,
a Time & Talent sheet listing the groups and ministries available in the parish, plus a
covering letter from Fr John available in the Gathering Space. Please note that for
parish school families their letter has been sent home from school .
