Weekly Update and Bulletin From Fr. Robert Miclean – March 10, 2019

The Lord took a handful of dustfrom the earth
He breathed into it and created me, a living man.
He made me lord and master of allthings on earth;

truly I enjoyed the life of the Angels. But Satan the deceiver tempted me in the guise of a serpent; I ate the forbidden fruit and forfeited the glory of God. Now I have been delivered to the earththrough death.// O my compassionate Lord, call me back to Eden!(Stichera for Sunday of Cheesefare)

2019 Pledges/Commitments.  We give back a “first fruits” pledge to Christ from what He’s so mercifully given and entrusted to us.  Everything we have is a gracious gift from God. Let us be as those servants who used their talentswisely and to God’s glory (Matt. 25:23).  If you have not done so yet, please offer your pledge of talents today. To grow in faith and grow our Mission “in spirit and in numbers,” please give generously and faithfully. (II Cor. 9:7).
