Stewardship Reflection
St. James warns us about accepting the standards of the world and assuming that what is normative in society needs no countercultural challenge. The temptation to hoard riches and make sharp bargains at the expense
of the powerless is pervasive because these things are generally done and look respectable enough. St. James points to God’s judgment on these attitudes and actions
of amassing wealth and comfort at the expense of others. How might we be better stewards of the material blessings we have been given? How might we use our wealth with compassion toward others?
Collection for Fr Doug:- all monies to be in by Friday 5th October.
Memory book please write a message, add a photo share a memory. Available after 10am Mass in Hartley Hall.
Sign up for food contributions and also offers to help on sheets at back of the church. Food to the School Hall BEFORE 6.30pm Mass on the 6th October
Mass stewards please count mass attendance, this week is a National Mass count.
