In the first reading we hear this weekend, Abraham provides a model for faithful living. He was willing to accept God’s call to leave his homeland
and go and make his home in another land. And he was not even told where he was headed. Yet he was willing to follow God’s invitation, trusting
that God would show him the way and tell him when he had arrived.

In the second reading, St. Paul reminds us that we will have hardships along the way, as Abraham did, but we have strength provided by God to
overcome them. When we have doubts whether Jesus can guide us and provide for our needs, we can rely on what we hear in the Gospel. God
the Father during the Transfiguration says, “Listen to him.” Christ himself encourages us, “Rise, and do not be afraid.” So let us indeed begin now
to follow the path God leads us along, unafraid to use the resources he has given us, on our own spiritual journey as servants of the Lord.

Yes, trusting is tough.

                                                                Finance Council
                         The Parish Finance Council provides expertise and consultation through financial analysis, planning and policy
                     development to aid the Pastor and Parish Administrator in the administration of parish goods: that is, parish financial
                   resources, buildings and grounds. The work of the Finance Council supports the mission of the Church and the particular
                   way that this mission is expressed in the parish pastoral plan and priorities as developed by the Parish Pastoral Council.
                     The Parish Finance Council is a consultative body which unites laity and clergy in a community of prayer, leadership,
                     service, and financial planning. The Pastor consults the Finance Council on major financial concerns which affect the
                        life and mission of the parish. As a consultative body, the recommendations of the Parish Finance Council bear
                     considerable weight. The Council is not a body which makes binding decisions nor is it an advisory group which gives
                                                               advice that can be readily ignored.
                               The Council’s recommendations deal with financial plans and policies and not with ordinary matters
                                                                  of day-to-day administration.
                                                                                KNITTING and CROCHETING MINISTRY meets on Friday, March
