“Martha, Martha, you are anxious and worried about many things. There is need of only one thing. Mary has chosen the better part and it will not be taken from her.” - Luke 10:41-42
Over the last few years, we have been in the midst of a campaign to renovate our church and other buildings. As this work comes to an end, we need to take this same energy and generosity that made our building campaign so successful and turn it towards building our faith.
Prayer, relationship with the Lord, is the foundation of our Christian life. Over the next year, we want to make a concerted effort to begin our renewal with prayer. Being with Jesus is the “better part” of our life. All of our work and service flows and is sustained by our relationship with Jesus. With this in mind, we would like to invite all parishioners to commit to this campaign to renew their prayer life as we have now renewed our buildings. We would like to encourage you to commit to at least one additional prayer opportunity this year, as well as one talk on prayer that will be offered throughout this year. We know many of you already participate in these prayer opportunities but hope that you can be challenged to do another this year.
Look over the Better Part Prayer Campaign Commitment Sheet and pray about your commitment. You will have the opportunity in the next several weeks to turn the sheet into the parish.
