ADULT CONFIRMATION CLASS

2 3 rd Sunda y in Ordinary Ti me: Sept e mber 6

That we may grow stronger in our faith, realizing that God does not measure us by what we possess but rather by

what we do for one another.

“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.

STEWARDSHIP REFLECTION

The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA), also called the Catechumenate, is a spiritual process and the formation steps one takes to be fully initiated into the Catholic Church; that is, to receive the Sacraments of Baptism, Eucharist and Confirmation.

Classes offered in English and Spanish. Please call Vicky Quiray, Director of Adult Faith Formation, at 713-774-7475 x109 for appointment and information.

23o Domingo en Tiempo Ordinario: Septiembre 6

Para que podamos crecer mas Fuertes en nuestra fe, reconociendo que Dios no mide segun lo que poseemos

sino por lo que hacemos el uno por el oltro.

“No ha elegido Dios a los pobres de este mundo, para que sean ricos en fe y herederos del reino que ha

prometido a los que le aman” (Santiago 2:5)
