September 18, 2022 Love God not wealth!

PRAYER:   Let us know and serve God (not only the things of this world) !!  Jesus teaches us today that “No servant can serve two masters…. You cannot serve both God and mammon.”  We should not be only focused on our wealth in this world.  Amos calls out a warning to those who “…. Trample upon the needy and destroy the poor of the land!” 

     The Gospel Acclamation is:  “Though our Lord Jesus Christ was rich, he became poor, so that by his poverty you might become rich”

     We are rich through the love of God…. Let’s show God we love him and share our wordly goods with the poor as best we can.    

PARISH MAINTENANCE :  We continue to study, discuss and work to put together a phased approach to Assumption Church repairs and improvements… as we work at the same time to build up the people part of the parish.

     We are focusing first on boiler repair, flat roof replacement, safety upgrades of pavement and other ways to keep moisture out of the church.

ONGOING MISSION/EVANGELIZATION/GROWTH:  I will lead a Catholic Men’s group called THAT MAN IS YOU on Saturdays from 7:00 – 8:30 am; starting on September 17, 2022 in the Parish Offices.  Please join us!

We welcome Isamar Perez to the Faith Formation Coordinator position!!.  Isamar has been involved in faith formation at her home parish in Rhode Island.  She is a first year student living at Our Lady of the Elms College.

     Our next Edge – Middle School Ministry session will be on Sunday, September 18, 2022 from Noon to 1:30 pm in the Assumption downstairs Hall…. Calling all Middle Schoolers!!


Peace of Christ,

Deacon David Southworth, Parish Manager
