Stewards Value Others
"Do nothing out of selfishness: rather, humbly regard others as more important than yourselves…" Philippians 2:3
Pride and ego are hard things to control. We see how others act or dress and think we are superior to them. We idolize our own selfimage. But, if we truly believe everything is a gift from God, we recognize all the people that God has put in our lives as gifts! We are grateful for how they enrich our lives. Stewardship calls us to pray every day for the people in our lives.
Religious Education registration forms are at the Parish House from 9:00am to 4:00pm during the week or by calling the Religious Education Office at 661-9489.
FISHES & LOAVES FOOD PANTRY
As the cold weather takes hold our food pantry could use donations of canned soup, stews, hot chocolate, instant oatmeal and also jelly. We accept all non-perishable items and donations can be left in the pantry box at the church
NEED SACRAMENTS OR INTERESTED IN THE CATHOLIC FAITH?
Perhaps you have been coming to Mass with a relative or friend and have considered becoming Catholic. Perhaps you did not receive all of your Sacraments as a child in the normal course. Perhaps you know someone like this that is spiritually searching? We have just the right program for you! It is called the Rite of Christian for Adults (R.C.I.A.).
Any adult can investigate and proceed to prepare for the reception of the Sacraments in the Catholic Church in a personal and relaxed manner through this program. Please call the rectory for more information.

Confessions in both English and Spanish are offered Saturdays, after the 4:30pm Mass until the 6:30pm Mass and again after the 6:30pm. Confessions are also offered in English as usual from 3:30pm until 4:30pm Mass.
