Dear friends on the journey,
When was the last time you …?
I suspect we’ve all attended to most of these in the last few months. Often these are simply checkups, assessments and hopefully confirmations of within range cholesterol levels, expenses aren’t exceeding our income, and the kids are academically on target. Sometimes an unexpected result sends us down a different path, perhaps a life-changing diagnosis, new tires are needed, or our child needs additional resources at school.
Now I ask: when was the last time you attended to our spiritual life …?
Where are you on your spiritual journey? What is your relationship with God like right now? How are you responding to your baptismal call to live a disciple’s life? Just as we do for our bodies, vehicles, and kids, it’s good to ask these questions periodically for ourselves and our upcoming parish mission is an invitation for that spiritual check-up. Led by Fr. Daniel Horan, our three-day mission Discipleship: Becoming Fools for Christ is an opportunity to be renewed in faith and reconnect with the gospel message so we can go forth as reinvigorated disciples.
I invite you to give yourself the gift of this spiritual checkup and come be nourished in body, mind and soul. Page 12 has all the details so you can plan to attend one, two or three meals and sessions on Friday and Saturday plus one mass the weekend of October 2022. See you there!
