An Evening of Reflection on the Consecrated Life

Fr. Ron May and the Parish of the Future Education Committee present:

 An Evening of Reflection on the Consecrated Life

Thursday, April 23, 2015, from 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm

in the St. Dominic Community Learning Center

What is life like for those who serve God in the Consecrated Life? Hear from a panel of priests and religious as they share their reflections concerning everyday life, special times and moments in their service to the Lord. What do their days look like? What special insights might they share about their consecrated journey including study, devoted prayer, reading and ministering to others in various ways? This presentation is especially timely in this Year of the Consecrated. Perhaps there are some who have thought about a religious vocation who might especially like to attend. This presentation offers an opportunity for open and reflective engagement in conversation with representatives of various Orders including the Legionaries of Christ, Filippini Sisters and the Franciscans of the Eucharist. Each of our guests will provide an overview of their work, what makes an Order unique, discovering God's call, and will respond to questions of those in attendance. 

All are welcome to join us!

a gift to the church

Have you considered leaving a gift to your church in your will?

A gift in your will can have a huge impact on the life of your church. For many churches, regular giving is absorbed in ‘keeping the show on the road’ –paying the parish share, insuring and heating the building, repairing the roof and so on. A gift from your estate can help to ensure that the parish continues for generations to come.

Gifts in Wills are an important part of Christian giving. Many of us give regularly to the church each week or month from our income; why not from our estates too? It’s also a way to give thanks to God for the gifts of your life and lifetime.

When we genuinely see ourselves as God’s stewards, entrusted to use His gifts to us for the good of our families, the Church, the needy and in thanksgiving, we should also take Will-writing seriously – setting God’s affairs in order and stewarding them wisely to the end of our time on earth and beyond.
