This is My Parish
This is my parish. It is composed of people like me.
We will make it what it is. It will be friendly, if I am.
Its pews will be filled, if I help to fill them.
It will make generous gifts to many causes,
if I am a generous giver.
It will bring other people to its worship and fellowship,
if I bring them.
It will be a church of loyalty and love, of fearlessness and faith,
and a church with a noble spirit, if I,
who make it what it is, am filled with these qualities.
Therefore, with the help of God, I shall dedicate myself
to the task of being all things that I want my church to be.

Time for God by Fr. Jacques Philippe “I would like to pray, but I don’t have the time.” This is an often-heard excuse. In a world that is overwhelmed with activity, there is real difficulty finding time for everything. Nevertheless, time is not the real problem but recognizing what matters most in life. As one contemporary author observed, no one ever died of hunger because of not having time to eat.  One of the greatest tragedies of our time is our inability to spend time with others, of “being there” for others.  But if we give God our time, we will also find time for other. By paying attention to God, we learn to pay attention to others.
