A Note from the Pastor


Although God is the supreme being who made all things, as the Catechism tells us, this does not mean that God is an impersonal force who stands aloof from our everyday lives and the world he has created.  God lives and acts in relationship as a community of three equal persons in one God.  This is what we celebrate when we as Church observe Trinity Sunday.

Because any exact explanation of the Trinity fails us, it is one of the greatest mysteries of our faith to which we mush submit in belief and awe.  Yet the most effective way to try and grasp what the Trinity means is to see it as a deep relationship of love.  God the Father and God the Son love one another so much that The Holy Spirit is formed from their intense love.  This love, of course, is the total self-giving of each person to the other.  We are initiated into the life of the Trinity at Baptism, it is sealed with the reception of the Holy Spirit at Confirmation, and it is strengthened each time we receive Jesus in the Eucharist.

Grateful Giving Reflection: Spending Time
Stewardship of time is one of the 3 interlinked dimensions of our call to stewardship. Just as with our financial resources, we talk about spending time, saving time, and wasting time. But how well do we steward our time, or use it in a way that reflects our gratitude to God for every hour of every day?
According to the latest government survey, the average American spends about 5 hours of ‘spare’ time each day in these activities:
2.8 hours watching TV
38 minutes socializing and communicating
20 minutes reading
20 minutes using the computer for fun
17 minutes participating in sports, exercise, active recreation
16 minutes relaxing and thinking
20 minutes on ‘other activities’

How do you use your leisure time? Where do your priorities lie? How much time do you give back to God—in prayer, study, volunteering in the parish?
“Teach us to count our days aright, that we may gain wisdom of heart.”  (Psalm 90:12)

Grateful Giving Update
Our Grateful Giving Program continues to be very well received by the people of Assumption Parish.  To date, 388 households have increased their weekly contribution in response to the letter from Fr. Justin representing a combined weekly increase of $2,983.09.  The average increase in the weekly offering is $7.69.

If you have not already done so, please use the special ‘Grateful Giving’ envelope to indicate your new level of giving, and return to your regular envelope packet for succeeding weeks.  If you are interested in donating through Electronic Giving please go to www.parishpay.com and follow the instructions.



You are invited to participate in our upcoming ‘Discovering Christ’ course.  This is a 7 week course where we will enjoy a delicious dinner and listen to an enlightened teaching.  Afterward, we explore the meaning of life and the identity of Jesus Christ with others.  Discovering Christ begins June 7 and goes through July 19 with a retreat on Saturday, July 9.
We meet on Tuesday evenings from 6:30-9:00pm.
Deadline for registration is May 31st.
