Baby Bottles Campaign!
After Mass today, we will be distributing baby bottles from the Pregnancy Care Center (PPC). The PPC is a Christ-centered ministry committed to saving lives physically, spiritually, and emotionally, one life at a time. Please take just one bottle per family. As a family, fill them with a check (made payable to PPC), cash or coins, and return them to the church by August 6th. You can also give a gift in honor of someone by filling out the form in the bottle. The PPC will send a special card to them showing that you have made a gift for life in their name.

The bottle campaign is used to fund Pregnancy Care Center programs that help women in crises pregnancies.

For Matthew, faith is never stagnant. If there’s faith, there’s growth: good seed planted in a field, a tiny mustard seed growing into a mighty bush, yeast making the dough rise and turning wheat into wholesome bread. If I’m alive in God, there should be plenty of signs of growth in my life.
Where in my own spiritual life do I see signs of life? How has my relationship with God grown in the past years?
How do I handle the “weeds” in my own life? Do I let their presence choke the growth of the good wheat?
In my own life do I accept that God gives good ground for hope and repentance for sins?
