Archbishop’s Appeal – October 18, 2020 This year’s theme is “HOPE IN EVERY SEASON”. Our readings today invite us to examine closely what we have, where it has come from, and why it has been given to us. This year allows our Archbishop’s Appeal to become the vehicle for your own spiritual renewal as you offer your financial gifts to further the mission of Christ in the Archdiocese of Regina. St. Joseph’s goal for 2020 is $50,364.58. Bulletin Reflection – 29th Sunday in Ordinary Time A Isaiah 45:1,4-6|1Thess. 1:1-5a| Matt.22:15-21 We have been gifted with so much in our lives. Jobs, homes, family, friends, and all of the material trappings of our modern lifestyles. These things in and of themselves cannot bring us the fulfillment and purpose our hearts seek. Jesus tells us this week what really matters in all the gifts we are privileged to receive, is that we appropriately give what is due “to God what belongs to God.” For we all belong to God and all that we have belongs to God. It is only in “Giving to God what is God’s”, that we will find true happiness and fulfillment. Let your support of the Archbishop’s Appeal be a well-discerned and responsible act of sacrificial praise, service, and worship. [Source: Adapted from Appeal 2017 Parish Manual] Faith Study: Begins on Thursday, November 3rd. This year the Faith Study will be on Thursdays ONLY. Mornings at 9:30 am immediately following Mass and again in the evening at 7:00 pm in the parish hall. There can only be 30 people at each session. Please pre-register by calling the parish office 306-694-1944 or Therese Lyons at 306-693-6196.
