We Are God's Building!

This theme for our Stewardship Renewal season is based on the First Letter to the Corinthians: "You are God's building," says St. Paul (I Cor 3:9). We, the Faithful People of God, form the Church built upon the foundation of Jesus Christ. This Church stands as a shelter for all and a beacon of  hope for the world. The other side of this image is personal... Each one of us, as a disciple of Jesus, is also a temple of the Holy Spirit who builds up God's Kingdom with our unique gifts. View this week's bulletin.
