PLEDGE CARDS AS PRAYER IN ACTION!

Pledge cards are now due. Yes, the church as she always has must operate in a responsible and fulfilling manner. Your church relies on your individual commitment to its very being, purpose, and service. Yes, pledging IS a SPIRITUAL DISCIPLINE no less valued than your prayers and love of Christ.

For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” Matthew 6:21

“No one can serve two masters. 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 both God and Money.” Matthew 6:24

Jesus said, “I tell you the truth, this poor widow has put more into the treasury than all the others.  They all gave out of their wealth; but she, out of her poverty, put in everything–all she had to live on.” Mark 12:44

“Sell your possessions and give to the poor. Provide purses for yourselves that will not wear out, a treasure in heaven that will not be exhausted, where no thief comes near and no moth destroys.” Luke 12:33
It seems clear that our faith is tied to our labor and our labor tied to our money. Will you who labor for what little or much that you have share your wealth with the community and if the community then the Body of Christ, and if the Body of Christ then the Kingdom of Heaven which is near and at hand? As a church let us rejoice in what we have and give our faith, prayers, wealth, and very persons to the Lord who is our good provider. Tithing is the standard set by the church but we say give with glad hearts give out of your abundance give to the Lord his due and honor Him.

 

All Saints and All Souls Votive Masses

The Feast of All Saints Day will be held on Sunday November 2nd during normal worship hours. This wonderful feast day will recall the communion of saints that have preceded us and will be an occasion of  even greater joy as we welcome newly baptized members among us.

The Feast of All Souls Day is a lesser known feast is New Orleans and it will be transferred and celebrated on Monday November 3rd at 6:00 p.m. It is this Feast in particular that we remember our lost loved ones who have preceded us to the Heaven Banquet. Please add the names of your loved ones to be read as a litany on this very solemn evening.
