EPARCHIAL APPEAL 2021

We are in the midst of this year’s Eparchial Appeal. Funds donated to this appeal will support the various ministries that the Bishop and the Eparchy of Phoenix carry out for the Glory of God and the up-building of the Church. We need about $325.00 from each family to reach our goal. Please give more if you can, as some cannot give that amount. Details should have been sent to you by the Eparchy, but if you have not received anything you can contribute anyway by writing “Eparchial Appel” on the memo line of a check to the parish, or donate online at https://ephx.org/st-marys-eparchial-appeal/
Thank you for your generosity!
Thank you to those who have contributed: Anonymous, Clemens, Golya, Healy, Herrera, Horey M, Michyna, Mina, Mowery, Father O’Loughlin, O’Neill, Patzwahl, Sumandra NS, Tabak, Theisen, Zimmerman PM, and Zimmerman WJ.

From A Community of Grace: It takes a Village (Chapter 4)

The author writes, “Children love and need tradition, order, and predictability. The value of tradition lies in its repetition, its intimacy, its knowledge this is what we do, what we have been through together, what we have shared, laughed at, and been a part of.” I have been thinking about this a lot lately. I think about how quickly my kids are growing, and how they will be adults only tomorrow. I wonder how well I have taught them to love holy traditions. It is a statistical fact that what kids are exposed to will greatly determine their future selves and even occupations. I greatly desire that my children love our community, and that they love the traditions they are exposed to. I want to pass down a legacy of honoring God and the community they are in. This should be the prayer of every parent. If we don’t have holy traditions in our homes it is very likely that neither will they. As parents let us show them the love we have for all things holy, let’s build holy tradition in their lives.

“One thing I do know: that though I was blind, now I see!” The healing love of Christ gave sight to the man born blind. Have you received the eyes to spiritually see your calling in life? Is he calling you to help the world see Him more clearly by a vocation to the priesthood, diaconate, monastic or religious life?
