Special Intention for July/August 2016

Be a good steward of your parish community!
We’re still in the grip of a hot and sunny summer, but August brings a wake- up call. By August’s end, visiting relatives have gone home, schools will be open, swimming pools will be closed, and college kids have packed up and left for the halls of academia. What’s all that mean for the Christian steward? As we journey through August, parishes begin to teem with plans and new vitality.
The parish is where the Church lives, and stewards are the lifeblood of a successful parish. In the parish, we find community and support, liturgy and ritual, sacrament and healing. In the parish, we find a way to give and a way to receive. On a practical level, Fall is the time when parish planning gears up for the seasons ahead. Now, for a Christian steward, is the time to prayerfully consider your own involvement in the life of the parish in the coming year. How might we serve – and be served? The Christian steward knows participation in the parish is a win-win situation, feeding us as we feed others.

was instrumental in assisting Fr. Damien of Molokai with the care of the patients afflicted with Hansen's disease. This prayer is for private devotion for the cause of canonization of Joseph Dutton. Send reports and information of favors received through his intercession to email@example.com
"Come, Holy Spirit, and visit your people in our great need. May Joseph Dutton, who lived in penitential solidarity with those yearning for a complete change of mind and heart in every time and place, intercede for us in our struggle, particularly for _________________. May his total submission to your purifying will in all things encourage us on our own way of conversion. May whatever virtue in him your Church deems heroic clear the way to sainthood for him, for the inspiration and consolation of many. Amen."
