Something to think about...questions for this week

How often do you reach out with the kind of confidence that Andrew had? Are you ready and willing to share your faith with your family and friends? Do you consider your relationship with Jesus a gift to be shared, or a fact to be safely hidden away in your personal prayer corner? Jesus' first spoken words in the Gospel of John: "What are you looking for?" How do you invite non-believers to look for Christ?

(Though it varies from person to person, it generally takes no less than 21 days to develop a new habit. It also takes discipline, courage and determination on a daily basis.)

What is God calling you to do?


Discernment groups are meeting now for those men discerning a call to the priesthood, as well as for women discerning a call to the religious life to help answer the question, 'What is God calling me to do?'.
More information can be found by contacting the Diocesan Office for Vocations at 583-2864.
