At Saint George Parish we are pursuing new opportunities to foster a stronger parish life and better engage the New Evangelization. As a part of these efforts we are happy to announce that Saint George Parish now has it's own app for Apple and Android phones.Our new app will allow us to send you useful and important messages throughout the week regarding our parish life and events, and allow you to reply to messages or RSVP for events.There will be no need for parishioners with smart phones to remember to silence their phones before Mass. The app will send you a reminder to silence your phone 20 minutes before the Mass you select. Many more great features will be a help to all of us, such as, daily Mass readings, Catholic news, prayers and prayer reminders, quick access to online tithing, Confession reminders, and our weekly bulletin.
We are in the middle of January and the new year is already advanced. In a few weeks’ time, Bishop-elect Fr. Donald DeGrood will be ordained our bishop. It is a good moment to recall the core of the mission and office of the Bishop. The Catechism summarizes the three offices of the Bishop. They are:
The Bishop is a teacher: “Bishops, with priests as co-workers, have as their first task "to preach the Gospel of God to all men," in keeping with the Lord's command. They are "heralds of faith, who draw new disciples to Christ; they are authentic teachers" of the apostolic faith ‘endowed with the authority of Christ.’”
The Bishop is called to sanctify the people entrusted to his care: “The bishop is ‘the steward of the grace of the supreme priesthood,’ especially in the Eucharist which he offers personally or whose offering he assures through the priests, his co-workers. The Eucharist is the center of the life of the particular Church (the diocese). The bishop and priests sanctify the Church by their prayer and work, by their ministry of the word and of the sacraments. They sanctify her by their example, "not as domineering over those in your charge but being examples to the flock." Thus, ‘together with the flock entrusted to them, they may attain to eternal life.’”
The Bishop is the governor of the local Church: “’The bishops, as vicars and legates of Christ, govern the particular Churches assigned to them by their counsels, exhortations, and example, but over and above that also by the authority and sacred power’ which indeed they ought to exercise so as to edify, in the spirit of service which is that of their Master.”
As Fr. DeGrood prepares for his ordination let us uphold him with our prayers over the coming weeks and throughout his time as our Bishop.~ Fr. King
