Fr. J.J.’s Jottings

My notes are quick this week since I wanted to leave room for Fr. Eric’s message, but a quick request:

  • Prayer is powerful and we have great “prayer warriors” in our parish. Imagine what could happen in our community if we all focused on a single prayer request – whether we sit before the Blessed Sacrament, walk through our neighborhood praying our rosary, offer our morning or evening prayers, or whenever we pray. Please feel free to spread the word and share this intention: That everyone at St. Anastasia Parish realizes that God has uniquely blessed them with specific gifts, and that they will be filled with joy if they utilize these blessings to serve Him.  
  • You may notice that the new chalices we purchased through your Changing Lives Together donations are not on the altar this weekend. Why? They are being sent back to be re-plated. They began tarnishing and pitting and the manufacturer will be fixing the problem.

CSA: $8,008 short of target

God bless,
Fr. J.J.
