What you need to know from this weekend’s bulletin:


In His Image and Likeness

May 26, 2024

The Book of Genesis mentions that we are created in God’s image and likeness.  It somehow describes God’s oneness as well as God’s diversity in three persons as manifested in our human condition.  We believe that God’s oneness is also manifested in the uniqueness of each and every human person.  Each and every human person is unique in his or her own right.  We always say that there are not two persons who are exactly the same.  DNA technology has reinforced this singular uniqueness of each human being.  Each and every one of us has his or her own character with its own idiosyncrasies.  The uniqueness of every person stems from being created in God’s image and likeness.
Our social nature as human beings is also rooted in God’s Trinitarian nature.  Our sociability manifests God’s three-ness as persons.  Our communitarian spirit belies our sharing of God’s plurality as persons.  We tend to seek one another.  The saying “No man is an island” captures this inherent human condition which stems from our being created in God’s image and likeness.  In the mystery of salvation, we are redeemed not only as individual persons but as a people, as a community, as Church.  The diversity of the gifts and talents of our respective persons are unified by the same one Spirit of God.  The unity and diversity that is found in our communities is the manifestation of God’s oneness in three diverse persons, united by the principle of selfless love.  
In the olden days, sermons or homilies are started and ended with the Sign of the Cross: “In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.”  At the beginning of every Mass, the celebrant invokes the Trinitarian greeting: “The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ and the love of God and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all!”  He also ends up with the blessing invoking the three persons in one God.
Healing Lines
“Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations.” Mt 28:16-20. As we follow Christ’s commissioning to us all, be sure to include those who are vulnerable and suffer interpersonal violence in all its’ forms. These will be touched by you through your caring actions and administrating to their current traumas.

Financial Reporting
Our financial reporting system has not been at pace since the start of the year due to turnovers of our diocese-designated bookkeepers and due to problems in the diocesan data-recording “Parish Friendly” program which will soon be replaced with a new system.  Non-reporting is not intentional at all. Transparency is a priority.  We are working on the issues.  Hopefully by the end of this month, we will be able to update our books and come up with our regular financial reports, as published in the bulletin.  We appreciate your trust and understanding.  
Volunteerism, Anyone? 
With the return of our Basket Collection during weekends, we need volunteers in the Hospitality Ministry to increase the number of ushers and greeters who can help with the collection baskets.  With the lifting of restrictions of the Communion with the Cup and if we proceed with the pre-pandemic practice, we require to double the number of Eucharistic Ministers who can help administer Holy Communion during the weekend Masses.  If you are interested in being a volunteer, please contact our Volunteer Coordinator, Marvin Matthews at mmatthews@saintmichael.ca
