FATHER GLENíS

THOUGHTSÖ..††

 

In our Gospel this Sunday Jesus tells us that he reveals the Father to us.He does so to give us hope and peace of spirit in our life and struggles on earth.During these summer days we should seek to find Jesus in our daily living so that we can be renewed by God who wants us to experience his love for us.Each sunny day that makes us want to head outside and revel in it, is a reminder of the goodness of God.

 

I will be away on vacation this week beginning on Tuesday, July 5th until Wednesday, July 13th.Services will be held as scheduled while I am away.I will pray for you all while I relax and refresh on the North Shore.

MISSION APPEAL Weekend at Holy Cross July 9 & 10 - The Catholic Diocese of Same (pronounced SAH mee), is located in the northeastern part of Tanzania, in the Kilimanjaro Region.Tanzania itself is located in the eastern part of Africa.Same is the headquarters of the diocese, is a town of 17,500 located approximately 65 miles from Kilimanjaro, the highest mountain in Africa.The diocese of Same has a population of 500,000 people, of which 45 percent are Christians, 35 percent are Muslims and 20 percent follow traditional African religion.The Diocese of Same has been requested by the villagers of Mabillion to help them build a medical clinic.We would like to ask you to participate with us in the building of this clinic.The people themselves will supply all of the unskilled labor; we only ask for help with building materials and medical supplies.This is an opportunity not only for you to share your resources with some of the poorest people in the world, but also for you to build the body of Christ in Africa.
