Bulletin – 18th Sunday in [Extra] Ordinary Time during a Pandemic

Dear Friends,

NO PHYSICAL MASS THIS SUNDAY–but mark your calendars for our next Zoom Mass, August 30, 2020 at 10 A.M.  Pastor Dick Dahl is preparing this week’s homily–thank you Dick!

As we prepare for Sunday’s reflections, the Scriptures are suggestive of how we should be in our world.  The prophet Isaiah instructs us to listen well, that we may have life and to not spend [our efforts] on things that do not bring life.  The psalmist reminds us that our God is merciful and Paul insists that, “nothing can separate us from the love of  [this gracious] God” because of Jesus.  And finally, just as Jesus multiplied his goodness among many; we too must share Jesus’ love among us.

Peace and love–stay well and safe, Pastor Kathy
