Weekly thoughts and announcements from our Pastor, Fr. Tom Lewandowski.

God Takes the First Step

God does not wait for us to go to him, but it is he who moves toward us, without calculation, without quantification.  That is what God is like.  He always takes the first step; he comes toward us. —“Pope Francis Speaks to our Hearts”

Next weekend, everyone will be invited to take a step toward God through the act of loving service in ministry where we can live out our baptismal commitment, reflecting God’s life within us.  This invitation will be presented at all the Sunday Masses next weekend.  How is God asking, inviting, calling you to take one step closer to him and to each other through loving service in ministry here at Christ the Light of the World and St. Joseph Parishes?

Accompanying today’s bulletin is a flyer listing the many ministries and volunteer opportunities available at our Parishes. We ask that you take a moment to review all the various ways you might participate in the life of our parish communities. Consider which ones might fit well with your talents and time constraints and join us next week to learn more about how to put your time and talents to work for your church family.
