22nd Sunday of Ordinary Time

Stewardship thought for the week

September 3, 2017 – 22nd Sunday in Ordinary Time

“What profit would there be for one to gain the whole world and forfeit his life?” – MATTHEW 16:26

St. Francis of Assisi once said, “Remember, you are what you are in the eyes of God, and nothing else.” We often forget this stewardship wisdom when we spend all of our time, talent and treasure to gain more of the world’s riches. We need to set our priorities based on God’s values and not the values of the material world.

Last week’s collection: Envelopes $1,367.92; Loose $400.00; other $96.00

Total:  $1,883.92                                                   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.
