STEWARDSHIP THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK
In today's Gospel, Jesus says that God is glorified when a disciple, grafted in Christ, produces abundantly and bears much fruit. The disciple must then be a good steward of that abundance.
Readings for next weekend will be
Acts 10:25-26, 34-35, 44-48 I John 4:7-10 John 15:9-17
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.
