Message of the Week

Pentecost Sunday

Pentecost Sunday

 Jesus sends the Holy Spirit to be with us and to sustain us.

We receive the same gift given to the apostles and disciples through our baptism and confirmation.

Indeed, we are given the same power and support whenever we receive the Eucharist.

Pentecost is often called the birthday of the church and, in a way, it is our birthday too.

We have been given a new life in faith.

Jesus sends us to do His work.  Are we ready to go?

Go Into the World and Proclaim the Gospel to Every Creature

Pentecost SundayThe Ascension of the Lord

Jesus is the ultimate reality that is forever present to us.

Jesus is not an idea but the abiding connection of god to us.

He challenges us to accept his work and his reality and spread it throughout our world.

Our faith is to be an earthy reality connected to our everyday life and the life of others.

Are we ready to exercise our faith by doing His work?
