Thanks to Fr. Brian for his enlightening presentations on the Joy of the Gospel: and to the Catholic Daughters, Assumption Women’s Group and the Monday night prayer group for providing refreshments: also to the Tri-Parish Adult Formation team for hosting this event.

Stewardship Reflection: November 23

When the Son of Man comes in glory, may we be among those who have fed the hungry, welcomed the stranger, and clothed the naked. For Jesus tells us clearly that it is those who have demonstrated good stewardship by sharing their gifts with the less fortunate who will receive God’s blessing and inherit the kingdom.
