BE the Change Challenge Weekly Challenges: 9/25/16
Each of you do things every day to grow in your relationship with God. We are hopeful our challenges will spark some additional interest and give you a platform to share your ideas and feedback on how these challenges are making an impact in your life. Thank you for taking part in the “Be the Change Challenge”. We are confident you will find a closer connection to Christ one challenge at a time. Go ahead, give it a try. You can do it!
Prayer: Pray for those addicted to drugs/alcohol, may the Holy Spirit inspire them day by day to avoid the substance that deteriorates their lives.
Participation: Can I go an entire day without complaining? Go an entire day without complaining. Spread only positivity.
Payback: Consider having your memorial go to the Church.
Weekly challenges can be found in our bulletin, my parish app, through email blasts (if you are not receiving emails from the parish you can call the rectory to be added). Feel free to send your thoughts to Pam Nowak, 636-667-3704 or Glenda Volmert, 636-259-0867, or add your anonymous comments on a slip of paper in the weekly collection.
Starting 9/24 & 25, our parish will start praying for vocations with the “Vocation Chalice”. Praying for vocations is a responsibility and privilege of the laity. The “Vocation Chalice” is a Chalice that will be presented to a family each Sunday at the conclusion of Mass. That family will take the “Vocation Chalice” home and use it as a focal point while praying daily for an increase in religious vocations. In successive weeks, the “Vocation Chalice” is passed to other families.
