Together in Faith: Jesus told the people, “You are looking for me, not because you saw signs, but because you ate your fill of the loaves. Do not work for the food that perishes, but for the food that endures for eternal life.” John 6:26-27
Jesus invites his followers to determine what is really important in life, and to seek after that. We today have so many distractions, so many opportunities to miss what God is calling us to be and do. Let’s make a renewed effort to seek that which endures for eternal life.
Bishop's Committee Parishioner Liaison: Every week there is an assigned member of the Bishop's Committee to serve as a Parishioner Liaison.

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 Teresa Gordon/Fr. Gerardo.
