Dear Parish Family,
God has called us to a life of Holiness. The word is out: Jesus wants everyone to be holy! Spiritual growth is for everyone, which means that the ordinariness of everyday life is meant to be caught up in the vision of Jesus and the power of the Holy Spirit. For that to happen, each one of us must hear the Good News and respond to it.
I invite and challenge each of you to join me on this journey to holiness. We are all called to be saints!
Let us each make a commitment to become more like Christ. In order to grow in holiness we must study
and live our faith daily. Faith is not just for Sundays!
Over the next several years we will be embarking on a deeper spiritual journey as a parish.
We will be providing teaching inserts and resources for further study on our Catholic Faith, Scripture and Prayer. We highly encourage you to create a binder to place these three-hole punched teaching inserts—creating a Ste. Marie Catholic Resource for every household. Please join us as we study and grow closer to
our Lord! Remember we cannot give what we do not have!!! The closer we come to know Christ and the teachings of His Church the better we can fulfill the mission to which we are all called.
“Be perfect as your heavenly Father is perfect.” Matthew 5:48
“No believer in Christ, no institution of the Church can avoid this supreme duty; to proclaim Christ
to all people.” Redemptoris Missio –JPII
So let us pray and commit to following Christ over these next few years and beyond . . .
