“No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon (material wealth).” Matthew 6:24
Do you have other “gods” in your life (job, money, power, ego, possessions)? Do you put them before the Lord? A stewardship lifestyle means putting God first, in all things! It means living stewardship 7 days a weeks, 24 hours a day and not just the time that I go to Church or participate in my parish ministry. It means re-prioritizing and putting God first.
We would like to welcome our visitors who are here for the first time. You are always welcome to the historic Church of St. John Nepomuk. There has been a Catholic Church at the corner of 11th and Lafayette since 1855. If you’re looking for a church home, we’d love to have you as a member. To register, call our rectory M-F from 8:00 am to 2:00 pm.
CHARITY OUTREACH FEBRUARY: Many thanks to everyone who supported this collection.
Our Organ: Wow! After last weekend’s collection, we have more than $1,000 towards the $3,500 we need to repair the organ. Thank you so much for your generosity! For those who missed it, we will repeat the second collection today, or if you’d like, you may send your contribution to the rectory.
Pictures, we need pictures. For our 160 anniversary, we’d like to display pictures of past events. We have some, but if you have any old photos of our Chapel, especially with people you can identify, please bring them to us. We’ll duplicate them and give you the originals back. We’d like to make this a permanent exhibit. Any questions, call Sue or Deacon Mike at the rectory.
Our annual picnic will be held on Sunday, June 22. More details later.
Ash Wednesday is March 5. There will be mass and distribution of ashes at 9:30 a.m. There will also be a collection for the Church in Central and Western Europe.
Next weekend there will be a second collection for black and Indian missions.
The Light is on for you: Again this year the Archdiocese will be offering multiple opportunities to celebrate the sacrament of reconciliation from March 21-April 5. Here in the South City Deanery, fifteen of our neighboring parishes will be hosting special reconciliation times. Watch for a list of times and places in an upcoming bulletin and on the bulletin boards at the entrances to the Chapel.
Deacon Mike: We’re short of space again this weekend so I’ll be brief. This has been a rough winter for many of us. The cold and snow/ice have been quite a challenge. It costs at least $500 each time we have our parking lot cleared and we’ve bought over 600 pounds of salt (over $200.00). Meanwhile the weather, and the Mardi Gras parade have hurt our weekly attendance. And it’s still three weeks until spring. Sadly, our expenses keep piling up whether we have five people at mass or five hundred. Please keep your weekly contribution coming, even when you can’t make it to mass. As always, your generosity is greatly appreciated!
Have a Blessed Week!
