14th Sunday in Ordinary Time

Melanie was one of several second graders who volunteered to help tidy up the church after the school Mass. Her mother asked her why she decided to help clean the church, but never found time to clean her room. “God needed a favor,” she said, “so I did it. Then when I need a favor, God will help me.” Her faith in God was straightforward and simple; He was just another friend with whom she shared secrets and favors. It’s easy to substitute theology for faith and complex debate for simple relationship. Like many of the best things in life, we understand best with the heart, not the mind. To explain God, is it easier to say that in the perfection of His being, free from all sin and darkness, God, as the omniscient and omnipotent Being, loves me completely and without fail, as I am, since he makes me in his image and likeness? Or is it better to say, God loves me like a grandparent who spoils me rotten? If you are not sure, trade favors with God today. You’ll not only be surprised by what He gives you, you’ll also be surprised by what you can give Him.

COMMUNITY NEWS St. Athanasius and St. Agnes Youth Ministry WE NEED VOLUNTEERS for events listed Please contact Brad Agostonelli , Youth Minister Cell: 585-200-2831 Office: 781-944-0330 [email protected]

We need your input! We are constantly trying to improve the ways in which we build up our teens' faith lives and help them get to know Jesus through our youth ministry program. Parents/guardians of Catholic teens in Reading, we want your feedback on how we can do this! We are partners in helping our teens learn about the Catholic faith and apply it to their lives so please consider completing this quick survey so we can learn about what we can do to better serve our teens and families. Here is a link to the survey: https://goo.gl/forms/QOQlhWCxSXYFDNBi1

COR UNUM MEAL CENTER Our next visits to serve dinner at Cor Unum Meal Center in Lawrence are on Saturdays 7/29, and 8/19. These trips are open to ages 13 and up. We will meet at 3:15pm in the St. Athanasius Parish Center and return to Reading around 7:30 or 8pm. PLEASE RSVP TO BRAD ONE WEEK BEFOREHAND.

MUSIC MINISTRY Musicians and singers are wanted! Any middle or high schoolers who sing or play an instrument are invited to participate in the Mass choir at St. Athanasius. Please contact Music Director John Donovan for more information: [email protected]

July 9 ~ Fourteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time Believing as St. Paul says, “You are in the Spirit” gives us the impetus to speak to others of the importance of Christ’s presence in our lives. Being disciples of Christ and doing the work of evangelization takes time and energy, so we take comfort in the words Jesus speaks in today’s gospel, “Come to me all you who labor…and I will give you rest.” Once refreshed and renewed by Christ we need to resume our task of making disciples!
