Back on Pentecost, I asked how would we know that the Fire of the Holy Spirit burns within the parishioners and parish of St Mary? What would be visible signs of that fire to those around us? As I looked at the responses, five areas seemed to arise. Here are your responses, sorted in those areas.

In our parish ministry: St Mary Catholic School ministry, Religious Education, Youth Group, Funeral Meals, Fall Festival, Vacation Bible School, increased Collections, Renovation of the Church, Participation of Children

There are many ways we can see the Holy Spirit burning within us currently – as parishioners and as a parish. There are many other ways we could fan that flame and burn more brightly. This largely resides with you, your response to the Holy Spirit, your engaged discipleship, your willingness to evangelize, your openness to carrying Christ’s Cross. This week celebrate the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ – Corpus Christi. Jesus gives himself to us sacramentally, so we may give Jesus to others in and through the Church. Are you handing Him on? St Mary, Pray for us. ~ Fr. Gries
