Invitación de Apoyo a la Iniciativa de Corresponsabilidad

Vivir nuestra fe al máximo cada día y todos los días es el reto que se plantea a todos los católicos en nuestra parroquia. Al participar en la Iniciativa de Realizando Nuestra Misión en Cristo damos un paso más en nuestra jornada para así vivir como buenos y fieles corresponsables. Cuando aceptamos con gratitud los dones que nuestro Dios nos ha dado y los devolvemos a Él en mayor proporción al compartirlos con los demás, respondemos al llamado que cada uno de nosotros recibió en el bautismo de vivir como Sus discípulos. También ejercemos nuestro sacerdocio bautismal hacia la santidad.

Esta Campaña nos ayuda a reconocer que toda vida es un don de Dios, quien nos invita a compartir lo que se nos ha dado para beneficio de todos. Vivir una corresponsabilidad verdadera no es contribuir una sola vez o de los que nos sobra, más bien es una forma de explorar y profundizar en verdadero sentido del don de compartir.

Por favor, únanse a nosotros en oración para que la Iniciativa de Realizando Nuestra Misión en Cristo logre lo que se pretende alcanzar: tener un sentido mas sólido de pertenencia, demostrar nuestra confianza en nuestra iglesia y estar mas dispuestos a cumplir con la voluntad que Dios tiene para nuestras vidas al compartir en generosidad nuestro tiempo talento y tesoro para llevar a cabo la misión de la Iglesia.

Invitation to Support our Stewardship Initiative

Living our faith to the fullest each and every day is a challenge put forth to us as Catholics by our Lord. Through our participation in our stewardship initiative Advancing our Mission in Christ, we grow closer in our journey toward living as good stewards of the gifts from God. When we accept with gratitude the gifts given to us by God and they are returned to Him in greater proportion as they are shared with others, we respond to the calling we received in our baptism of living as disciples of Jesus. In this, we also practice our baptismal priesthood of holiness.

This campaign helps us to recognize that all life is a gift from God, and we are invited to share that which has been given to us in benefit of others. Living as a true steward is not giving only once or that which we spare, rather, it’s a way of exploring and deepening in it’s truest sense, the gift of giving.

Please join us in prayer that our initiative Advancing our Mission in Christ accomplishes its purpose: to have a deeper sense of belonging, to show trust in our Church and be willing to live what God has for our lives while sharing generously our time, talent and treasure to carry out the mission of our Church.
