COLLECTION FOR THE NEEDS OF THE CHURCH IN CANADA:

Each year, Catholics are invited to collaborate with their Bishops through the annual collection for the Needs of the Church in Canada. This collection is being held today in parishes across the country.
Throughout 2012, many important events are taking place in the Church: The Synod of Bishops on the New Evangelization, the canonization of Blessed Kataeri Tekakwitha, the 50th anniversary celebrations of the opening of the Second Vatican Council, as well as the launching of the Year of Faith by Pope Benedict XVI. The Bishops of Canada are closely connected to all of these events, which are occasions to gather in unity and communion. Your contribution to the Collection for the Needs of the Church in Canada will support the Bishops in their ministry to teach, sanctify and govern.

The Bishops of Canada thank you in advance for your generosity and your commitment to the Church, following Christ’s example.

23rd Sunday in Ordinary Time – September 9: “Did not God choose those who are poor in the world to be rich in faith and heirs of the kingdom that he promised to those who love him?” (James 2:5). What is more important – being rich in faith or rich in possessions? Society teaches us that possessions are most important. God teaches a different lesson. When we are rich in faith we know that material things really do not matter and we are more willing to share what we have.

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ:
In February, Pope Benedict XVI called on the international community to come to the aid of West Africa’s Sahel region, noting its extreme poverty and worsening conditions.

Since then, the area has continued to experience a food crisis brought about by low rainfall and drought. The area is on the brink of a humanitarian crisis that will leave about 15 million people at risk of not having enough food.

It is crucial that we, whom the Lord has blessed with such abundance, respond to the

dire needs of our brothers and sisters. On July 22, a special second collection in the Archdiocese will be taken for the needs of the Sahel region.

The funds raised will help support large-scale food distribution projects organized by Caritas Mali, Caritas Niger and Caritas Burkina Faso.

On the weekend of July 22, please use the special collection envelopes that you will find in your pews, or donate online at www.devp.org/donate.

As you remember the drought-afflicted of Africa in your prayers, I offer the assurance of my prayers for you and your families, I am

Sincerely yours in Christ, J. Michael Miller, CSB

Archbishop of Vancouver

Please Note: Cheques have to be made out to St. Peter’s Church. Please do not forget to put in your full name and address on the special emergency envelopes in order to get a tax receipt. The parish will send one cheque to the Archdiocese.

STEWARDSHIP REFLECTION: In today’s Gospel the people in Jesus’ own hometown were very upset by his teaching. The stewardship message is challenging and at times can make us feel a little uncomfortable. Our own friends and family may even question our commitment to this way of life. Yet, stewardship is exactly what is needed in a society that worships complexity, busyness, and the excessive accumulation of material goods. When questioned will you have the courage to take the risk of being a prophetic disciple who lives a steward’s lifestyle?
