 “Stewardship is a spiritual way of life that defines who we are in relationship to God

And everyone and everything we ever encounter”.

Dear Folks,

            This week in the Community Room, the former garage, we began to make use of the final stage of our office renovation.  In the weeks ahead, we will complete the installation of blinds, the decoration of the office areas, and the blowing of insulation in the attic.  Many thanks to all of the staff and volunteers who have participated in this renovation.  We will have additional comfortable space to continue our mission.

It is our hope that the decorations of these rooms will reflect and inform parishioners about our mission as a parish.  In the Legacy Anniversary Room there will be historical pictures of past parishioners, pastors, and events.  There will also be a picture of the Last Supper with the caption “Do This In Memory of Me”.  This will be a reminder that we are called to be a community that celebrates with gratitude the words and deeds of Jesus who sacrificed all out of His love for us.  In the Community Room there will be the same caption, “Do This In Memory of Me”.  Only this time, it will be paired with a picture of Jesus washing the feet of the disciples.  We are a sacramental community called to serve God by serving our fellow human beings.  Throughout this room will be pictures and collages of people and places in the Franklin and Johnson County Community.  I pray that both these rooms will remind us of our mission to follow in the footsteps of Jesus.

            Fr. Steve

Stewardship

November 5, 2017, 31st Sunday of Ordinary Time

In today’s Gospel, Jesus lays judgment on the scribes and Pharisees for the hypocritical way they lived out their faith. The criticisms he levies are all about the ways righteousness turns into self-righteousness, and how religious belief turned into something that was more about elevating themselves than about what they could do for God or their neighbor. Good stewards know that discipleship means finding ways to serve, and searching for ways to be a servant—to live as a servant of Christ. When faith is authentically lived out in community everyone is enriched, and God is glorified. Reflect this week on how you live out your faith.

 

“Our inherited Catholic Legacy is what our Catholic forebears have done for us.
Our stewardship is the means by which we will hand on our Catholic Legacy to those who will follow after us.”
