Sunday Gospel

MT 22:15-21

The Pharisees went off
and plotted how they might entrap Jesus in speech.
They sent their disciples to him, with the Herodians, saying,

"Teacher, we know that you are a truthful man
and that you teach the way of God in accordance with the truth.
And you are not concerned with anyone's opinion,
for you do not regard a person's status.
Tell us, then, what is your opinion:
Is it lawful to pay the census tax to Caesar or not?"

Knowing their malice, Jesus said,
"Why are you testing me, you hypocrites?
Show me the coin that pays the census tax."

Then they handed him the Roman coin.

He said to them,
"Whose image is this and whose inscription?"
They replied, "Caesar's."
At that he said to them,
"Then repay to Caesar what belongs to Caesar
and to God what belongs to God."

Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God. (1 John 4:7)

In the Spirit of the Extraordinary Jubilee Year of Mercy, the Christian Service Commission launched the St. Ignatius Food Pantry on Sunday, December 18th, 2016. This service to the needy is an important part of being merciful like the Father,  and in fact, it is one of the corporal works of mercy.

Please direct people who need help  to contact the Church Office or the Christian Service Commission.

The Food Pantry is located in the former Adoration Chapel. The area was recently renovated and blessed to accommodate this new ministry to the needy.

We are encouraging everyone to be part of this great mercy initiative.

Please donate food and other non-perishable items so that the Food Pantry can be fully stocked. The following food items are required and can be dropped off at the Church after Mass or the Church Office at any time:

  • Personal items: Bath soap, toothpaste, toilet paper, deodorant, body lotion, other toiletries, etc.

  • Drinks: Tea, coffee, sugar, cocoa, condensed milk, coffee mate, canned or box juices Ė apple, pineapple, mixed, etc.

  • Carbohydrates: Rice, noodles, flour, cornmeal, oats, pasta, etc.

  • Protein: Sardines, canned - tuna, sausage, mackerel, pork & beans, assorted dried beans, peanut butter, etc.

  • Fruit: Canned fruits, dried fruits, etc.

  • Other Items: Cooking oil, salt, black pepper, assorted dried seasonings/spices, detergent, jams, biscuits, low sugar cereals, etc.
