Together in Faith: Jesus said: “Be on guard so that your hearts are not weighed down… with the worries of this life…. Be alert at all times.” Luke 21: 34, 36.
The message of Advent is clear: Be ready, the Lord is coming. In our daily lives, this might encourage us to be alert to persons and situations in need. The Thanksgiving we’ve just celebrated reminds us
how wonderfully we’ve been blessed and how generous we need to be.
Bishop's Committee Parishioner Liaison: Every week there is an assigned member of the Bishop's Committee to serve as a Parishioner Liaison. We encourage parishioners to seek out this assigned member whenever there is a suggestion, question or concern. The liaisons will bring all comments to the monthly meeting of the Bishop's Committee to be addressed as appropriate. This week’s Parishioner Liaison is Randy Rogers.
