“My God will supply whatever you need…”


                                                              Philippians 4: 19


God really does provide for those who are grateful and generous. This is very difficult for people that don’t live a stewardship lifestyle to believe. People are skeptical and say it’s just coincidence. If you are skeptical, try living a stewardship lifestyle for just one month – be generous with your gifts of time, talent and treasure and see how God provides for your needs.

Liturgical Reflection:                         October 15th

At Mass celebrating Matrimony, the rite concludes with the solemn blessing provided in the ritual.  There is no dismissal.  Another local custom which is popular in the Diocese is to introduce the newly married couple to those gathered in the church.  The priest presents the new husband and new wife to the Christian assembly.  Now married in Christ this man and woman assume mutual fidelity, as Christ the Bridegroom is ever faithful to his bride, the Church.  The Church celebrates and supports this couple as they begin their new life together.
