Reflections on Sunday’s Readings: March 2, 2014

Easter LilyThis is the Eighth Sunday in Ordinary Time: Trust in God and dependence upon God are qualities a disciple of Christ needs. The responsorial psalm (Ps. 62) speaks to this reality: God is my rock and my salvation (vs 6-7). Each of us are very precious in the eyes of God and our scripture authors convey that in their writings.

Readings for this Sunday:

Anointing of the Sick

Anointing of Sick“Is any among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord and the prayer of faith will save the sick person, and the Lord will raise him up. If he has committed any sins, they will be forgiven. (James 5:14 - 15)

Reminder: The sacrament of the Anointing Of The Sick is available to anyone experiencing infirmity due to serious or chronic illness, accident, or age is invited to receive this sacrament as a support during your difficult time.

An invitation to join the Parish Pastoral Council from Bill Carlisle

PPCThe following personal invitation was given after mass on the weekend of February 8-9, 2014.

My name is Bill Carlisle and have been a member of the PPC for about 1½ years.

After 60 something years of being a Catholic I finally have found why I am like St. Paul: "I stand before you in fear and trembling!"

I would like to say I had a really interesting discernment process, but I didn't. I am the Chair of the Stewardship committee. When asked if I would take this position I said yes. Then was told "Oh by the way... you will be on the PPC too!" I have enjoyed my time on the council, and have connected with some very GREAT people.

Reflections on Sunday’s Readings: February 23, 2014

Jesus and childThis is the Seventh Sunday of Ordinary Time. Leviticus, the third book of the bible, named for the tribe of Levi from which the Israelite priests came, has two basic sections. Today’s readings come from the second, the portion that instructs the people of Israel how God wants them to live their lives - to be holy. (The first portion, Lev 1-16:34, instructs the priests.) The Lord tells Moses to tell the whole people “Be holy, for I, the Lord, your God, am holy.”

God must have known that, not unlike us, many Israelites would say, “This is too hard” and “I can’t be like God.” But instead of lessening the command, God explains it. “Though you may have to reprove your fellow citizen, do not incur sin because of him [sic]….Take no revenge and cherish no grudge” God ends with what Jesus knew to be the 2nd greatest commandment: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”

6th Grade visit to the Sister Visitor Center

 

We walked into an older building and went upstairs and all of the 6th graders sat at two long tables. We were introduced to Sister Shelly and she told us all about the history of the Sister Visitor Center. She said that the first time the Sister Visitor took place was in a janitor’s closet in a school. After she talked us through the trip we went downstairs.

We went downstairs and we saw the room with all the food and outfits. Sister Shelly told us that people used to come once a month to get outfits but then the people started to waste the outfits. They did this because they knew that they would get new ones.
