The waters of Baptism make us part of the new covenant in Christ. But the bishops' pastoral letter on stewardship reminds us that "there is a fundamental obligation arising from the sacrament of baptism...that people place their gifts, their resources - their selves - at God's service in and through the Church."
Readings for next weekend will be
Genesis 22:1-2, 9, 10-13, 15-18 Romans 8:31-34 Mark 9:2-10
We invite you to read and study these passages for your own reflection as we prepare for the liturgy we will celebrate as a parish community.
