Eparchial Appeal

The Annual Eparchial Appeal is underway!  You should have received a letter and donation instructions from Bishop Olmsted and the Eparchy of Phoenix.  You can use the instructions you received from the bishop, or you can visit our parish’s donation page here:  https://ephx.org/st-marys-eparchial-appeal/

We are working to support our Eparchy as a community, so please prayerfully discern what you can give, and I know we will meet and exceed our goal (we get a large percentage back) if we have full participation. Thank you for your generosity!

Thank you to those who have contributed: Clemens, Crans, Patzwahl, Theisen, P. Zimmerman, and W. Zimmerman

 

Are you a Doubting Thomas?

Christ is Risen! If your life is consumed with doubts and worries, you might be a Doubting Thomas. After all, Christ is Risen! Faith is a virtue; our doubts about life can indicate we have sinned against this virtue. When we really trust that Christ is risen, we trust his words that “all authority” was given to him, which means that he is providentially in our lives, working towards our good. Do we believe that even our worst circumstances are being worked out for our salvation and for the preaching of the Gospel throughout the world? If we are not even thinking about these things it is another indicator that we have moved on, so to speak, from the good news. When we prioritize our lives in this direction, our path becomes simpler and more meaningful, so that we bolster the virtue of Faith given to us at baptism.

Christ is risen! Let’s rise with Him! 

Fr. Nathan Symeon

 

“If you forgive anyone’s sins, they are forgiven…” The priestly life is a beautiful way to bring forgiveness to this world. Is God calling you to consider this life, other holy orders, or the monastic life of prayer, fasting and almsgiving? Contact the Vocations Office at 206-329-9219 or email: vocations@ephx.org
