$50,000 of this ADA goal will be sent back to our parish to be used to reupholster the chairs in our Church, and to purchase a device which will help with simultaneous translations at our larger meetings.

As we look at our lives and the many ways God has blessed us, let us give back a portion to the Annual Diocesan Appeal as a way of saying thank you to the Lord. If you have yet to make your pledge to support our Parish and the Diocese, please consider doing so today.

Pledge envelopes can be found at the church entrance doors or stop by at our Parish Rectory after Mass. Drop your completed pledge card into the Offertory Collection Basket or drop it off at the Parish Office.

Thank you for your prayerful consideration.

Promesas hasta hoy en Santísima Trinidad: $123,735

$50,000 del objetivo del ADA serán regresados a nuestra Iglesia para ser usados para re tapizar las sillas de la Iglesia y para comprar un dispositivo que ayudará con traducciones simultáneas en nuestras reuniones grandes.

Al mirar nuestras vidas y las muchas maneras en que Dios nos ha bendecido, devolvamos una parte al Llamado Anual Diocesano como una manera de decir gracias al Señor. Si aún tiene que hacer su promesa de apoyar a nuestra parroquia y la diócesis, por favor considere hacerlo hoy.

Los sobres de compromiso puede encontrarlos a la entrada de las puertas de la iglesia o pase a la oficina parroquia después de la misa. Deje su tarjeta de compromiso completada en la canasta de la colecta de las ofrendas o déjela en la oficina parroquial.

Gracias por su considerar en oración.

Today’s Scripture Reflection - March 19, 2017

THIRSTING FOR LIFE-GIVING WATERS

Especially during the Lenten, Holy Week, and Easter seasons, the prayer texts of the Eastern Church revel in paradoxical images of Christ: the eternal life who is put to death, the host of the supper who is also its meal, the thirsty crucified one with living water streaming from his side. These images flow from the evangelists' portrayals of Jesus and from his very ministry, during which he often upset or reversed people's expectations about him or the ways of God. This "reversal" is at play in today's Gospel, as Jesus speaks to an enemy foreigner who is also a woman beneath his status. In addition he, the thirsting one, shows the woman to be the one truly thirsting. He--whose parched lips will say "I thirst" before he dies--is the source of life and life-giving water. Lent calls upon us to dwell on how each of us is thirsting for Christ, and it leads us, ultimately, back to the lifegiving waters of our baptism into his Body. Copyright (c) J. S. Paluch Co., Inc.

Reflexion del la Esccritura de Hoy -  19 de marzo de 2017

Tercer Domingo de Cuaresma
COMPRUEBALO

¿Qué se requiere para convencernos de la verdad? Algunos de nosotros simplemente necesitamos escuchar que alguien con cierta autoridad lo diga. Otros necesitan tiempo para pensar un argumento que los convenza, paso a paso. Muchos de nosotros tendemos a aprender de una forma difícil, experimentando las lecciones de la vida en formas dramáticas y personales. Varios tipos de evidencia funcionan diferentemente en nosotros. Para los israelitas nómadas y sedientos, una fuente de agua los persuade a volver a creer en Dios. Para la mujer samaritana, la sabiduría profética de Jesús acerca de detalles íntimos de su vida es suficiente. ¿Qué será para nosotros? ¿Qué nos puede convencer, por siempre que Dios nos hizo, nos salvó de la muerte, y nos atesora como sus hijos amados? San Pablo nos recomienda que dejemos de pedir pruebas, no necesitamos más que ver la muerte y resurrección de Jesucristo. Él nos recuerda lo inusual que es para las buenas personas sacrificarse a sí misma por otras personas; es completamente absurdo para una buena persona dar su vida por los "impíos" y pecadores. Y eso fue precisamente lo que Jesús hizo por nosotros.
