The faith and dedication that exists in our parish... Father Tony, 11/12/2017
Dear Brothers and Sisters,
This weekend we will focus on the financial stewardship of the parish.
“As each one has received a gift, use it to serve one another as good stewards of God’s varied grace.” 1 Peter 4:10
I am consistently moved by the faith and dedication that exists in our parish. We have a treasure here at Our Lady of the Lake and God has blessed us mightily. At the very heart of what we are doing is walking together into deeper faith and community. We are about the work of building a community of Faith and Love. In his ministry, Jesus fulfills Scripture where it says; “Zeal for your house consumes me.” Each one of us is called to be zealous for the work of building the kingdom - that happens by all of us being actively involved in serving God with our Time, Talent, and Treasure. Some weeks ago, we had a ministry fair and I encouraged all of you to consider what ministries you felt inspired to contribute to. I want to thank you all for your generosity to the parish, and I would like to ask all of you now to consider your financial contributions.
Each household should have received a letter recently regarding financial giving. Please take a look at this and consider how you may be able to increase your parish giving. This will allow us to not simply maintain our current ministries and programs but to expand and grow them.
May God continue to lead us and guide us as we seek to build his kingdom.
This coming Wednesday, I will be leaving on pilgrimage to Assisi and Rome with the Companions of Christ. Please pray for us that it will be a time of God’s blessing and be assured of my prayers for all of you.
