Stewardship Reflection: October 19th

Each year at tax time, we conscientiously give “to Caesar what belongs to Caesar.” Does my stewardship indicate that I am as faithful about giving “to God what belongs to God”?


CATHOLIC DAUGHTERS #668 will be celebrating National Catholic Daughter’s Day by attending mass together at Assumption Church on October 19 at 10:30 am. Look for the purple and gold. Any of our local Catholic Daughters’ would love to share with you about one of the oldest and largest organizations of Catholic women in the Americas. They will also be serving coffee and doughnuts after the 8:30 am mass at Assumption that day. Plan to join us for a no-host brunch at Smiths following the 10:30 am mass.
