July 24, 2022 Find Joy

PRAYER:  God’s love for us is in full view in our scripture readings this weekend!

     We see in Genesis God’s mercy told to Abraham for Sodom and Gomorrah if even a few innocent/faithful people are there.

     Psalm 138:  “…you have heard the words of my mouth;….. Though I walk amid distress, you preserve me;…”

      Paul to the Colossians:   “(God) brought you to life along with (Jesus),….”

     Jesus to His disciples in Luke:  “….your kingdom come.  Give us each day our daily bread and forgive us our sins…..”.  “For everyone who asks, receives; and the one who seeks, finds;…”

     Hello world!!... Are you stressed, anxious… worried?.... Come to God and Jesus and you will find joy…. You will find good gifts given to us in the heart of the Catholic Church!!

PARISH MAINTENANCE:   B-G Mechanical has the intact, used section for the Assumption church boiler and are planning to install it.  We will keep you updated.

PARISH ONGOING MISSION/EVANGELIZATION/GROWTH:  The Parish Council and Finance Council have been in dialog with the Springfield Diocese about all our issues.  A way forward for the Parish seems to be emerging, if we are willing to take some efforts to move to more Parish health.  More details to follow…

Peace of Christ,

Deacon David Southworth, Parish Manager
