Pope Francis has returned to the Vatican after his visit to the United States of America. Parishioners of Annunciation were present in Washington, D.C., New York City and Philadelphia to see the Pope. Many more back home were able to listen to his words with the remarkable coverage in media. Now is the time to digest and reflect.
We are praying for the Holy Spirit during the month of October, a bit out of season, to come down upon our teens who will be receiving the Sacrament of Confirmation on October 18 during the 5:00 PM Sunday Mass. We welcome Msgr. David Slubecky, Vicar General of the Diocese and Moderator of the Curia. He will invoke and impart the gift of the Holy Spirit. We pray that the Holy Spirit will activate gifts and potential in the young adults and in all of us to be faithful to the calling we have received in Baptism. Pope Francis reminds us: “Before all else, the Gospel invites us to respond to the God of love who saves us, to see God in others and to go forth ourselves to seek the good of others.” (Joy of the Gospel)
During the month of October we are making a stewardship appeal entitled: Christ Is Life. Each year at this time, as pastor, I thank our parishioners for their involvement in the life of our parish and for their financial support. Together we prayerfully reflect upon and make a conscious decision on how much we will contribute to sustain the mission entrusted to us. Stewardship is living with gratitude and generosity.
