Twenty– Fourth Sunday in Ordinary Time - September 15/16, 2018

What good is it if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can that faith save him? If a brother or sister has nothing to wear and has no food for the day, and one of you says to them, “Go in peace, keep warm, and eat well,” but you do not give them the necessities of the body, what good is it? So also faith of itself, if it does not have works, is dead. Indeed someone might say, “You have faith and I have works,” Demonstrate your faith to me without works, and I will demonstrate my faith to you from my works.

James 2: 14 – 18

IT’S FINALLY HERE !! - Online Giving

Everything we have is a gift from God. We are called to be wise stewards of those gifts. One simple way to carry out our call is to support the church’s mission through sacrificial giving. Our new Electronic Giving offers a convenient, consistent way to help our church year-round. Consider scheduling a recurring electronic contribution today. It’s easy!

From the Pastor Sept. 8 & 9, 2018

Dear Friends:

I hope the week has been good. A holiday at the beginning was nice. It allowed
easing into the week.

This is a column of reminders:

Religious Education Registrations—online or at the office, or pick up a registration form at the entrance to the church

Holy Family Golf Tournament—deadline for registration is September 9

Book Club—begins next week. (I have read this book and I enjoyed it—I hope you all do too!)

Details on this year’s Ministry Fair—watch the bulletin!


Staff Meeting:

This Tuesday, September 11, our staff will have our first meeting of the school year. It’s a full agenda and we have several new members of the staff and Brother Brandon to introduce and get to know better. One of the agenda items is the Ministry Fair—so stay tuned for that information.

Next week I will give you a summary of our meeting and what we discussed.
Have a great week. Let’s keep each other in prayer.

Fr. Marty
