Bulletin for the Week of September 29, 2013 - and the Pastor's Corner

The Pastor’s Corner 

Jesus' words after the institution of the Eucharist at the Last Supper, and after he had washed His disciples’ feet:  [If] I washed your feet...then you must wash each other's feet....What I just did was to give you an example:  as I have done, so must you do."  Jn 13: 14-15.  As Jesus teaches us, our worship of God in the Eucharistic celebration does not end after Mass, but rather is just beginning.  We receive in the Eucharist the grace to live our Christian lives in serving God and each other.  This service extends outside the walls of our church to our neighbors.  We help others by serving in our church and helping those in need.  Thus, our worship of God and our spiritual lives are incomplete without this service.  Traditionally, we have categorized service in the gifts of "time, talent and treasure."  Last week, we spoke of "treasure," that is, monetary gifts to our church and to other charities.  This week, with our Ministry Fair, we focus on "time and talent."

Our annual Ministry Fair is an opportunity for us to see the various ways we can serve here at St. Landry and to consider giving our time and talent for the church's ministry.  There are opportunities for service individually and in a group or social setting.  There's something for everyone.  Since service is the primary function of a deacon, Deacons Diesi and Joubert will preach the homily this weekend about the importance of service in our spiritual life.  Please stop by the Ministry Fair after Mass!    

           God Bless!
