Dynamic Catholic, Alive!¬ – Forgiveness
The Extraordinary Jubilee Year of Mercy ended almost 3 months ago, but that
does not mean that we should stop showing mercy to our neighbor. Jesus
teaches us the radical nature of the Christian message in loving our enemies
and praying for those who persecute us. The Church has made Herself many
enemies throughout the last 20 centuries. We must continue to pray for these
enemies and forgive those who trespass against us. We are told to be perfect as
our heavenly Father is perfect. It is fascinating to note that the Gospel according
to Luke replaces the word “perfect” with merciful. Exegetes can argue about the
linguistic dimensions of the passage, but it is clear that we become like God in a
deep way and participate to some degree in His perfection when we are merciful
to others as He is merciful. archstl.org/dynamic
The Palm Sunday Festival is fast approaching. The festival committee is having trouble finding cash
donors for the spring cash raffle (we typically get $700-800, and we only have $200). It is definitely a
good money-maker for the festival so we don't want to drop it. We are looking for donors (either
business or individual). If you can help with this, please contact the parish office or Kurt or Cherie
Just for your information, in addition to the Auction and other fundraisers, the parish subsidizes
$100,000 each year for the operating expenses of the school. The 2 parish festivals help us meet that
goal. Your help with our raffle is an investment in our school.
Thanks so much for your help, and your kind attention to this!
So many parishioners find each of our parish’s myparish app so helpful in
getting updated information, messages, bulletins, calendars, and spiritual
renewal items. It has become an important way to get important information
about illnesses, emergencies, and death notices and visitation information
quickly to as many as possible.
Consider in this new year becoming a part of the myparish app community.
It’s FREE. Go to your app store to download the app, place in the zip code, click
on the parish, and you’re in! There are also cards in the vestibules which also
give information about myparish app.
For those who currently use the app, please remember to update your app every
so often. To do that, click on the button to ‘change parish’ and then click back on
your home parish. It’s that simple.
You’ve seen the beautiful bookcase built by Don Schwoeppe in the back of Church. Currently it has free
pamphlets and items. The reason it was built was to also house a lending library of books, Cd’s, and
videos for parishioners to check out and return. Just to announce, we are almost ready to stock the
shelves! Hopefully, we will have a significant number of items in the lending library by the beginning of
Lent. All you will have to do is sign the library card, place it in the receptacle provided, then return the item
when you are finished. We are excited about offering our parishioners this service. Thanks to the
Stewardship Committee for getting this project going!
