PRAYER FOR A STEWARDSHIP PARISH

(from the Archdiocese of Detroit)

Dear Heavenly Father, my parish is composed of people like me; I help make it what it is.  It will be friendly if I am. Its pews will be filled, if I help fill them. It will do great work, if I work.  It will make generous gifts to many causes, If I am a generous giver. It will bring other people into its worship and fellowship, If I invite and bring them.  It will be a parish of loyalty and love, of fearlessness and faith, and a parish with a noble spirit, If I, who make it what it is, am filled with these same things.  Therefore with your help, O God, I shall dedicate myself to the task of being all things that I want my parish to be. Amen.

Ash Wednesday

"The Season of Lent is more than changing our routines for forty days. The Season of Lent is a time for us to introspect and see where we are at in our relationship with God. The Season of Lent desires our spiritual growth. The Season of Lent targets our hearts so we can speak and act like Christ Jesus as we continue our faith-life journey here on earth." (From the Ash Wednesday Homily of Fr. Edison Pamintuan, MS)
The Christmas season starts on Dec. 25 during the celebration of the birth of Christ which is followed by the feast of the Epiphany, along with the visit of the Magi and other events from the childhood of Jesus,and ends with the Feast of the Baptism of the Lord in January.
The Advent season is a time of preparation that directs our hearts and minds to Christ’s second coming at the end of time and also to the anniversary of the Lord’s birth on Christmas. The final days of Advent, from December 17 to December 24, focus particularly on our preparation for the celebrations of the Nativity of our Lord.
