There are a number of pledges made to the DPAA by parishioners that still has a balance due. It is important to have these pledges paid so our church receives the credit and rebates. If you do not remember the amount still owed against your pledge please contact the church office, we have a listing of the pledges and outstanding amount due if any whether the pledge was sent in to the Diocese directly or given here at our church. It would be appreciated if the unpaid balance could be paid as soon as possible. Thank you.
Mass Stipends down !! Dear parishioners, we are running low on mass stipends. Wish to clarify that mass stipends are a good way to fulfill our duty to contribute to the needs of the Church and to offer prayers for others. There is no more powerful prayer which can be offered for any intention than the mass. Your contribution is not a payment but a sacrificial offering of your own self to the intention. The intention of a mass can be anything dealing with people; it is not just for the deceased, though we should continue praying for them for much longer than we do. Intentions can be for anyone we wish to call down the grace and blessing of God. Children, friends, parents, siblings, families, our nation, the unborn, orphans, the homebound, and so on. Our Lord gave us the mass as the ultimate sacrificial offering and it’s graces are only limited by our lack of use of it. Let us use the power of the mass for the good of others.

In the first reading, Amos condemns the rich for being more concerned with money than with true worship. In the Gospel, Jesus speaks about the importance of decisive action in a time of crisis and about using material wealth in a way that will give honor to God. In the second reading, Paul encourages prayers of intercession, especially for leaders.
