Responding to Renewal – 2019 Stewardship Campaign
Our theme this year is Living with Purpose
The one who listens attentively to the Word of God and truly prays asks the Lord, “What is Your will for me?” — Pope Francis, May 29, 2014
Scripture tells us that God has a distinctive plan for each of us, a unique purpose only we can fulfill. Recognizing that purpose and living accordingly is difficult in a world that encourages us to focus on ourselves rather than on others. It is important that we take the time to listen for his voice – the small gentle whisper guiding us in our life’s journey. Spend some time in prayer sharing your joys, your fears and your questions with God. Seek his direction, support and encouragement.
You may be inspired by the parishioners who have stepped forward to give lay witness talks at the Masses on October 28th and November 4, 2018 — see below. Giving witness is an expression of the good news by the parishioners. It is about how we take the gifts from God and share them with others. It is to help all parishioners think about how God works in their lives.
