Fr. Jim's Homilies

                            More Guilty?

Some people told Jesus about the Galileans whose blood Pilate had mingled

with the blood of their sacrifices. He said to them in reply,
“Do you think that because these Galileans suffered in this way
they were greater sinners than all other Galileans? By no means!

But I tell you, if you do not repent, you will all perish as they did!
Or those eighteen people who were killed
when the tower at Siloam fell on them– do you think they were more guilty
than everyone else who lived in Jerusalem? By no means!
But I tell you, if you do not repent, you will all perish as they did!”

And he told them this parable:
“There once was a person who had a fig tree planted in his orchard,
and when he came in search of fruit on it but found none,
he said to the gardener, ‘For three years now

I have come in search of fruit on this fig tree but have found none.
So cut it down. Why should it exhaust the soil?’
He said to him in reply, ‘Sir, leave it for this year also,
and I shall cultivate the ground around it and fertilize it;
it may bear fruit in the future. If not you can cut it down.’”

                                            -Luke 13:1-9

YDisciple: Youth Ministry

For our teens in grades 8-12 we have begun a program called

YDisciple. The “Y” stands for youth and this is a process in

which we are teaching our youth to be Disciples of Jesus Christ.

As recommended by the teachers/developers of YDisicple at

the Augustine Institute in Denver, we began with a very small

core group.  It’s going very well and our groups are growing as

teens currently participating continue to invite friends to join

their small groups.  This is the way Jesus did it, mentoring
to a small group of people who then went out to share their faith and
spread the Word. The small groups work best if member size stays
between 6-8 teens. Each group is led by two faith-filled adults from our parish.  We invite all

teens to participate and are also looking for adults who feel they would like the role of an adult

leader for one of the small groups.  Groups meet once a week at a time that works well for all

the members. For more information go to ydisciple.org to learn how this program can change

the lives of our teens.  To participate, contact Stacy Preszler at 751-4922.



Just Faith: Justice and Peace in Our World

Just Faith is a study in the Catholic teachings of social justice

for adults. New resources incorporate the writings of Pope

Francis, Catholic authors such as Henri Nouwen, and others.

 Just Faith forms a small community of disciples who

together encounter the Spirit of Jesus, especially in the lives

of those who are poor and vulnerable. For more information

click here, or call the Parish office 672-2848 to participate

in Just Faith.
