“Let us all remember this: One cannot proclaim the gospel of Jesus without the tangible witness of one’s life. Those who listen to us and observe us must be able to see in our actions what they hear from our lips. And so give glory to God.” Pope Francis

     What wonderful words of encouragement as we get ready to put the Gospel into action. In the spirit of COL let us all partake of this grand opportunity to make a difference. 

 

Men's Group

Men of Christ Our Light and Men of the wider community, come check out our new parish’s very own Men’s Group!

This is a new group being formed and led by Fr. Tom Newton.  It is about each man supporting one another to become a transformed man of God; a better person, husband, father, partner, son, brother, and friend.  It is about growing up – spiritually, emotionally and socially.  The sessions will last 1 ½ hours and will be conducted in the format of a Council Circle (more on Council Circles will follow in another bulletin). Open to All men age 18 and over.  All races, creeds, sexual orientations, and levels of church participation are invited.  The first session will be held on Saturday, September 23 from 6:00 AM until 7:30 AM.

RCIA - Be Filled with the Spirit

Are you, or have you at some point thought about becoming Catholic? Maybe you have tagged along with someone going to Sunday Mass and have had a "this is where I belong" feeling while there. If so, why not ask the questions and get the answers to help you decide.  In the RCIA program this is called the Inquiry Phase of discernment and is taking place now.  If you are interested, we would love to talk with you. For more information please contact Barbara Long at 856-810-0881.

Question of the Week

Week of September 17, 2017

Matthew 18:21-35

Adults:

In what ways have you put limits on forgiveness in the past?

We offer this form of contemplative sharing for pondering Scripture while considering the question, and for the faith sharing which follows.

-  Listen/ Read (Lectio): Ponder God’s word and listen for what touches your heart.
-  Meditate (Meditatio): Notice what you notice. Allow God’s word to resonate in you.
-  Speak/Share (Oratio): Prayerfully share with the group your thoughts and feelings.
-  Rest in God’s presence (Contemplatio): Notice God’s presence and be still, surrounded by God’s love.


Teens:

How can holding a grudge keep you from experiencing the healing of forgiveness?


Children:

Why is it important to forgive others? Why is it important to ask for forgiveness?
