Twenty– Fifth Sunday in Ordinary Time - September 22/23, 2018
Saint James the Apostle
“Where jealousy and selfish ambition exist” there is the temptation too “beset the just one” with “revilement and torture.” This is what Jesus reveals to his disciples: he is to be “handed over to men and they will kill him.” The disciples’ swaggering response is to squabble among themselves about “who was the greatest.” “Where do the conflicts among you come from?” From “your passions that make war within,” spurring us to “kill and envy.” Yet, for all our coveting, we do not possess. So Jesus puts his arms around a child. In order to receive this little one we must be pure, peaceable, gentle, full of mercy - so much better than fighting and waging war. We “have proof of his gentleness” in the desire to be gentle that Jesus generates in us.
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! You will no longer need to write out checks and prepare envelopes every week. Even when travel, illness or other circumstances prevent you from attending mass, your electronic contributions will continue to be received on an uninterrupted basis.
For help or questions, please call the parish office at 303-455-1664.

From the Pastor Sept. 8 & 9, 2018
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!
INFORMATION ON ALL OF THE ABOVE ARE IN THIS WEEK’S BULLETIN—BE SURE AND CHECK IT OUT!
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.
O Lord we Pray:
Place your Prayer Intentions for the sick in the “Book of the Sick” on the left as you enter church.
