Thanks to the Men’s Fellowship members who participated in the cleanup after the Aug. 5 Used Clothing Sale!  It was a great help to Mary Heagy (our music director who organized the sale) and her team.  Much like the miracle of the loaves and fishes that we discussed at our last meeting, your help and support is boundless.  

Our next meeting is Monday, Aug. 21, in the school cafeteria from 6:30 to 7:15 p.m. We will discuss the Gospel for that day (Matthew 19:16-22), which is the very challenging one about the young man who asks Jesus how to gain eternal life, only to be disappointed by the answer. 

Jesus said to him, “If you wish to be perfect, go, sell what you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven.  Then come, follow me.”  When the young man heard this statement, he went away sad, for he had many possessions.

At our meeting, let’s discuss ways to find joy in Christ’s response to give everything away.
