Jesus Matters.

Jesus is REALLY present in the Blessed Sacrament.

Personal relationship with Him is key.

We need to know Him, not only know about Him.

Jesus is the CORE of our faith, the source and summit of our life.

Like Mary and Joseph, our lives are to revolve around Jesus.

Jesus determines everything!

Jesus, help me make room in my heart for You.

How can I grow?

Participate in Mass! Monday – Wednesday | 8:15am Thursday | 7:00pm Saturday | 4:30pm Sunday | 8:30am | 11:00am | 5:30pm

Spend time in Adoration/Prayer before the Blessed Sacrament. The Church is open Monday - Wednesday from 7:30am - 7:15pm. Eucharistic Adoration on Wednesday from 8:45am – 7:00pm.

Add or renew an image of Jesus in your home.

Spend time with Scripture, the Word of God.

You Matter

(You are a precious child of God.)

Each person is vital.

Seamless garment of the dignity and value of life.

We are the Body of Christ, and each person is a member and belongs to that Body.

Your presence at Mass matters – when you aren’t here, a part of our body is missing.

Engage when you are here according to your season of life and personal circumstances.

Like the innkeeper, we are called to make room for Jesus, present in each person even when it is inconvenient or difficult.

Jesus, help me recognize You in each person I meet.

How can I grow?

Choose the name of another parishioner/household to pray for.

Send a note/text to someone who needs to hear that you care.

Be patient when interrupted and try to see it as a blessing.

You, the Church Matters

The Church matters, and we are the Church.

We are called to be salt and leaven in our world.

We must make a difference.

Our faith is personal, but never private.

They’ll know we are Christians by our love.

Like the Shepherds and Kings, we are called to be willing to sacrifice and share our experience of Jesus.

Jesus, give me the courage to witness to the difference You have made in my life.

How can I grow?

Take part in Christmas outreach: Caring Tree, Salvation Army, SVDP, gift to a neighbor, invite someone for a meal/visit

Allow yourself to be stretched.

When you are shopping, look for someone who needs a smile or kind word.
