Gala News
Thursday, 13 November 2014 10:07

Our ‘Share the St. Andrew Spirit Gala’ is only 5 months away (April 25) and planning began pretty much from the time last year’s event ended. Beginning today, we will have regular updates on this website, in the school newsletter, the church bulletin, and on the Gala Facebook page  so stay tune.

Today’s Update: This year’s ‘Secret Room’ will feature an exciting new activity which should be a crowd pleaser. We are asking our school families and friends to make an early donation to help make the ‘Secret Room’ a success. Stop by Mikie’s Liquor on Penn Ave. and they will have a list of items needed for the Gala. You will receive a 10% discount and they will collect and deliver all purchases to the Gala Committee. It can’t get much easier than that. We would like to see this project ready to go by Christmas Break.

Stewardship in Our School
Tuesday, 04 November 2014 11:16

During the month of November, the Wichita Diocese asks all parishioners to take time to reflect on living the Stewardship way of life. As a school we will be teaching about Stewardship, focusing on the Apostolic Exhortation: “Evangelii Gaudium – the Joy of the Gospel’ written by Pope Francis.

Excerpts:
‘The Joy of the Gospel fills the hearts and lives of all who encounter Jesus'
‘For if we have received the love which restores meaning to our lives, how can we fail to share that love with others?’
‘Before all else, the Gospel invites us to respond to the God of love who saves us, to see God in others and to go forth from ourselves to seek the good of others.’

Definition of Stewardship: Stewardship is the grateful response of a Christian disciple who recognizes God’s gifts and shares these gifts in love of God and neighbor.

The Four Pillars of Stewardship – support for Stewardship as a way of live

  • Hospitality – Christian kindness
  • Prayer – A heart to heart with God
  • Formation – Ongoing conversion
  • Service – Love in action: Faith working through Love

We invite all of our school families to take this time to renew their commitment to encounter Jesus.
