“What an experience, so much energy and fellowship. Let’s keep it going!”
Thank you to everyone who prayed for Father Jeff, Deacon Dennis and myself leading up to Synod 16’. The Holy Spirit came upon us before and still resonates in us after this wonderful weekend that was filled with so much zeal. Before Pentecost, it is going to be the work of the Holy Spirit through Archbishop Vigneron to compose an account of where our archdiocese will be heading.
I would like to share a few things to keep in mind over the Lenten season:
- Pray for Archbishop Vigneron as he discerns his account to be released June 3, 2017 during Pentecost Mass at the Cathedral.
- Remember we are ALL called to be a band of joyful missionary disciples, therefore making a difference in others’ lives.
- We as a church need to share our gifts and talents with others around us. We also need to expand our thinking outward, city, vicariate, archdiocese.
- Look around, there are many things that will be happening around the diocese. We as people of Jesus Christ have a hunger to know the Holy Spirit. Start by visiting the archdiocese website (aod.org) and watch the Synod videos. !Aspire to Inspire!
O Holy Spirit, Divine Consoler!
We adore you as God. We offer you our whole hearts and render you thanks for all the benefits you have bestowed upon us. You are the author of all supernatural gifts. We ask you to visit us by your grace and love and to guide, strengthen and protect Archbishop Vigneron as he leads our archdiocese. O Holy Spirit, Spirit of truth, come into our hearts, shed the brightness of your light on our parish and its members so that all we do will be united with and pleasing to you. We give you permission to refashion us according to your will. Amen
