Postcards from the Road: The Letter of James

We can read the Letter of James as a postcard sent to us from an early Christian community on its journey through faith. The postcard focuses strongly on the need to translate the Gospel into active love in the service of the people of God. It makes for interesting reading for us, as we struggle to live the Christian message in today’s world.

What’s Happening at GIFT?

GIFT session #1—September 17/18


Our first GIFT session of this year called us to a couple of tasks:

  1. To gather and connect as a group of seekers, old and new
  2. To meet those charged with the faith formation of our children and teens
  3. To learn about one of the treasures of our Church—the Vatican II pastoral constitution on the Church in the Modern World
  4. To brainstorm how we imagined our parish living out the call to be church in our modern world!!

There was a buzz in the room and great energy around this topic! Here are the combined ideas of the 100 adults present:

What can you do? What can we do together? Share your ideas with a staff member, Pastoral or Financial Council member, parish ambassador, or the parishioner sitting next to you at Mass.
