Project Advance – our annual appeal: Project Advance is the key annual appeal for the Archdiocese of Vancouver. It is crucial to the Church’s mission of providing services that benefit all Catholics and countless others in our Archdiocese. Not only does it provide for our local Church but it strengthens our parishes, helping each parish meet its own unique needs. It also helps support the many different ways we see the face of Jesus in our brothers and sisters – helping the most vulnerable by providing guidance, shelter, food and love to those who are homeless, abused and marginalized. You can donate to this important annual appeal at www.rcav.org/giving or at your parish. Visit rcav.org/project-advance for more information.

 

‘Laudato Si’, Blessed are You: ‘On the care of the common home’, the subtitle of Pope Francis’ new encyclical released on Thursday, continues a tradition of recent Popes who have made it very clear that humanity is largely responsible for the environmental degradation gravely harming our Earth’s ecosystems. According to Pope Francis “Respect for creation, then, is a requirement of our faith: the ‘garden’ in which we live is not entrusted to us to be exploited, but rather to be cultivated and tended with respect.” During the coming year Development and Peace along with other Catholic and ecumenical groups will be launching education and action programs to assist us as concerned Christians in addressing the global environmental challenges before us all.

 

Weekly Catechism:
CHAPTER TWO
I BELIEVE IN JESUS CHRIST, THE ONLY SON OF GOD
I. JESUS
434   Jesus’ Resurrection glorifies the name of the Savior God, for from that time on it is the name of Jesus that fully manifests the supreme power of the “name which is above every name.”27 The evil spirits fear his name; in his name his disciples perform miracles, for the Father grants all they ask in this name.28 (2812, 2614)
 

STEWARDSHIP REFLECTION

“He said to them, ‘Why are you afraid?  Have you no faith?’”  – Mark 4:40   Most of us like to be in control.  Loss of control makes us fearful.  Try changing your perspective and let God be the pilot!  There’s an old saying “do you want to make God laugh?  Tell him your plans.”  Put your trust in God, He always has a better plan!
