In every parish across the archdiocese, each parishioner is asked to prayerfully consider making a pledge to the 2020 Catholic Charities Appeal. Catholic Charities distributes millions of dollars to sustain Catholic programs, services and ministries across our archdiocese. The basic Pledge is $576 per year. We ask that everyone complete and return a pledge envelope and give what you can. If you prefer to donate online, you can text “CCA” to 91999 for a link.

Gospel Glimpses 

 

 

    

Within Earshot

     It’s hard to imagine in this age of cell phones that we could be unreachable anywhere on earth. Between faxes, email, satellite phone service, GPS locaters, it seems there’s nowhere on this globe left to hide.

     How is it then that we Christians spend so much time trying to hide from God? We hide behind our career, our finances, even, shamefully, our kids. God can’t expect us to neglect our children’s future soccer or singing careers just to volunteer at church, can He? Tsk, tsk. Imagine how many disciples Jesus would get if he stood and called out names beside the highway today. Would we hear him over the roar of the entertainment and our need to make money, to buy more things? Take a moment to see your life from a disciple’s point of view. Who is that shouting on the edges of your lake? Have you sailed on in your career/activities and left God standing on the shore calling your name? Stop your ceaseless rowing, drop the oars, the nets and listen. Can you hear Him?

"The family idea is dear to God and to the Church ... I declare that I recognize the value of a family spirit, of a family working in the Church, of a family that with ardor will take these words from our dear Lord’s lips: ‘Going, therefore, teach ye all nations: baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.'"

 

- Fr. Thomas Augustine Judge,  Founder of St. Patrick School and 3rd Pastor of St. Patrick Church


 

 

God so loved the world that he gave his only Son,
so that everyone who believes in him might not perish
but might have eternal life.
For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world,
but that the world might be saved through him.
Whoever believes in him will not be condemned,
but whoever does not believe has already been condemned,
because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God. 

                                

                                                                         JN 3:16-18
