21st Sunday of Ordinary Time
Stewardship thought for the week
August 27, 2017 – 21st Sunday in Ordinary Time
“Or who has given the Lord anything that he may be repaid?” – ROMANS 11:35
St. Paul reminds us of a central fact of stewardship. We cannot give the Lord anything, because God already owns it all. God made everything. All that we can do is return a portion of God’s many gifts back to Him. Sincere gratitude for our gifts opens our hearts to joyful generosity!
Last week’s collection: Envelopes $1,155.35; Loose $204.00; other $270.00
Total: $1,629.35 Remember, God can never be outdone in generosity.

Volunteer Opportunity—Ronald McDonald House Charities is opening its fourth Saint Louis Family Room and is in need of volunteers. They are opening a new room on the third floor of the new Saint Louis Children’s Hospital and expect to serve 5,000 families per year.
All they are asking for is a minimum three-hour shifts per month.
This looks like a very rewarding opportunity to be of service to young patients and their families.

This weekend is the Feast of Saint Louis IX, King of France, the patron of our Archdiocese is this weekend. Of course we have a statue of him just as you come into church. He is one of only two kings depicted here. The other is Saint
Wenceslas just across from Louis.
More than once in his lifetime Louis was heard to say that his baptism was more important than his coronation as king. You can read one of those quotes above our baptismal font.
