STEWARDSHIP In today’s Gospel, Jesus planned to slip away from the crowds for a few moments of peace and a little rest. When He saw the people gathered, however, He put His needs aside to meet the needs of others. Sometimes, as good stewards, we are called to do the same. More information about Stewardship can be found here.

WE CONTINUE TO GIVE TO the Reconciliation House food pantry and thrift store. Donations of non-perishable food are needed every week. This week they especially need soup and bags of cereal.


SUPPORT RONALD MCDONALD HOUSE Lynette Gates, at Sacred Heart, collects drink can tabs for Ronald McDonald House. A collection box is located in the entry at Sacred Heart and near the coffee pot at St, Andrew. Please save your tabs for Ronald McDonald House.

FORMING CONSCIENCES FOR FAITHFUL CITIZENSHIP "We need to participate for the common good. Sometimes we hear: a good Catholic is not interested in politics. This is not true: good Catholics immerse themselves in politics by offering the best of themselves so that the leader can govern."

-Pope Francis, Morning Meditation

The Catholic bishops of the United States offer to the Catholic faithful “Forming Consciences for Faithful Citizenship,” their teaching document on the political responsibility of Catholics. This statement represents guidance for Catholics in the exercise of their rights and duties as participants in our democracy. The statement lifts up our dual heritage as both faithful Catholics and American citizens with rights and duties as participants in the civil order. For more information, see the video and documents found here: https://www.usccb.org/offices/justice-peace-human-development/forming-consciences-faithful-citizenship
