  “Jesus turned and saw them following him and said to them, ‘What are you looking for?’” - John 1:38  What are you looking for? Are you wasting your time looking for the material comforts of the world? Or, is your heart longing for something deeper that can only be found by spending time with God? Take time, each day, in silence and ask the Lord what it is that He wants you to do.

Other Items & Upcoming Events

**Support the Solidarity Fund for the Church in Africa at next Sunday's Collection.  People in Africa are flocking to the Church and embracing the gospel message.  The Church is growing very quickly but too often there are not enough local resources to support people on their faith journeys.  When you support this collection, you make a real difference in the lives of our brothers and sisters in Africa.  Your gift makes it possible for the local Church to help people grow closer to Christ and spread the Gospel.  For example, in Malawi, young people comprise nearly two-thirds of the population.  And the Church there reflects this youthful face as well - the majority of the faithful are young people! But unfortunately, the Church in Malawi does not have enough staff or ministers to reach these young Catholics and help them grow in their faith.  Without support, young people run the risk of falling away from the Church.  But with your generosity to the Solidarity Fund, the Church in Malawi can train youth leaders to connect with and guide young people across the country.  Nearly 800 young people will be reached because of your contributions.  With your help, the Catholic youth of Malawi will become a powerful force for good and new messengers of the Gospel.
