A Stewardship Moment

Fifth Sunday of Lent
March 28/29, 2020
 
At this point in our Lenten journey, it is tempting to grow weary of the spiritual disciplines we have taken on. Today’s readings inspire us to remain faithful, in grateful response to a God who loves us so much.
 
In our first reading, the prophet Ezekiel speaks God’s own words to us. “I will put my spirit in you that you may live… I have promised, and I will do it, says the Lord.” Our God wants to be so closely united to us that we are one with Him. And He has promised He will do it. But only if we make room for Him by making Him THE priority of our lives. Putting God first is a grateful response that is very pleasing to Him.
 
How can we do this? Our second reading, from Romans, tells us. “Those who are in the flesh cannot please God. But you are not in the flesh… you are in the spirit if only the Spirit of God dwells in you.”
 
The disciplines of Lent and a stewardship way of life are beautiful gifts that free us from too high an attachment to “the flesh.” The sacrifices we make as Christian stewards are not meant to restrict our freedom and joy. Quite the contrary. They are tools to help us find the real freedom and joy that only come when we make room in our lives for God. 
 
As we journey closer to the Passion of our Lord, let us intensify our Lenten resolutions and our stewardship way of life, inviting the Holy Spirit to take over more and more of our lives. By Easter, we will be freer to rejoice in Him and truly pleasing to God.

Measuring Spiritual Growth and Parish Engagement
 
As of March 17, we have had only 191 people take the survey online and an additional 60 paper surveys turned into the parish office. This gives us a total of only 251 surveys completed. We have over 2,000 members eligible to take the survey (over 18).
 
This survey is designed to help you grow in your relationship with Jesus Christ and become more engaged in our parish. By answering the questions in the 15-minute survey, you will have the chance to reflect on individual spiritual growth as well as provide our parish leadership with invaluable insight into our parish strengths and opportunities. This will allow St. John’s to set priorities and allocate resources in the years ahead.
 
There are two ways to participate. There is a convenient online survey that you can take at home. Click on this link and first select the Archdiocese of Milwaukee then St. John the Evangelist Parish, Greenfield, from the options provided.
 
There are also paper surveys in the narthex. Contact the parish office if you would like a survey in a language other than English. Due to COVID-19 shutdowns, the survey has been extended to Sunday, April 5.
 
The survey is completely confidential. St. John’s will not receive any individual survey responses.
