Thirteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time : June 26, 2016
Gospel reading: Luke 9:51-62
When the days for Jesus' being taken up were fulfilled, he resolutely determined to journey to Jerusalem, and he sent messengers ahead of him. On the way they entered a Samaritan village to prepare for his reception there, but they would not welcome him because the destination of his journey was Jerusalem. When the disciples James and John saw this they asked, "Lord, do you want us to call down fire from heaven to consume them?" Jesus turned and rebuked them, and they journeyed to another village. As they were proceeding on their journey someone said to him, "I will follow you wherever you go." Jesus answered him, "Foxes have dens and birds of the sky have nests, but the Son of Man has nowhere to rest his head." And to another he said, "Follow me." But he replied, "Lord, let me go first and bury my father." But he answered him, "Let the dead bury their dead. But you, go and proclaim the kingdom of God." And another said, "I will follow you, Lord, but first let me say farewell to my family at home." To him Jesus said, "No one who sets a hand to the plow and looks to what was left behind is fit for the kingdom of God."

HAVE YOU MADE YOUR PLEDGE YET?
- Active Parishioners: 1500.
- ABCD Donors: 301.
Our ABCD campaign is a responsibility we are called to fulfill for the benefit of the Church. These funds serve the poor, educate seminarians and lay ministers, and keep our church mission alive in so many other ways.
Please look at the graphic to the left: out of nearly 4,000 registered parishioners, we have 1,500 active parishioners. From this number, there are only 301 families who have contributed to this endeavor, so far. Pray about it, and if you have not yet contributed, please contact our church office to commit to our goal. Or simply, fill out a designated envelope from the entrance of the church, and place it in the collection box.
Thank you and God bless you.
Sincerely in Christ,
