ENVIRONMENTAL STEWARDSHIP

(for the April 20/21 Bulletin)

“Spring is a permanent word of hope. It always comes. No matter how long or fierce the winter, spring forces its way through the tons of ice and snow…No matter how horrible the death, how unbearable the pain, and absolute the rejection, despite the tons of stone and dirt against the tomb, Easter happens and life grows green as all the forces of death are exhausted. May Christ Easter in us this April." (Author unknown)


NEW

ENVIRONMENTAL STEWARDSHIP

(for the April 27/28 Bulletin)

As we celebrate God’s mercy to us on Mercy Sunday, we are called to extend His mercy to others through the corporal and spiritual works of mercy. In 2016 World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation Pope Francis proposed that he works of mercy include ‘care for our common home.’ “It is not about changing the world tomorrow, it’s about changing ourselves and how we look at the world…It requires simple daily gestures which break with the logic of violence, exploitation and selfishness and makes itself felt in every action that seeks to build a better world.”

PLANNED GIVING: Leaving a Legacy:
