St. James presents Spotlight on Rome
We are having a slide show on
May 26th at 7pm in the St. James room. For more
information contact:
Father Charles Samperi
at (281)353-5053.
SPOTLIGHT ON ROME NOVEMBER 3 - 9, 2015
Unpack only once and come to know exciting
Rome, a metropolitan city steeped in history
and tradition. Walk through time at the Roman
Forum, a former market-place and main center
of ancient Roman life. Discover the stories of the
famous Colosseum and Palatino Hill, the location of ruins of many ancient palaces.
Our local guide will lead us through Rome's
churches to uncover their mosaic masterpieces.
Take a walk through the history and opulence
of the Vatican Museums, the Sistine Chapel and
St. Peter's Basilica.
Journey outside the city to the well-preserved,
abandoned city of Ostia Antica to get a glimpse
into the life of early romans. This in-depth discovery of this fascinating city will also provide
you with ample time for freedom to explore as
you choose.

What is Stewardship?
Stewardship is a way of life, a life of
accountability and responsibility
acknowledging God as Creator and Giver
of all. Stewardship involves responsible
management of our God-given resources
of time, talent, and treasure. Stewards as
disciples of Jesus Christ see themselves as
caretakers of all God's gifts.

Ascension de Nuestro Senor
"Si alguien reconoce que Jesus es el Hija de Dios,
Dios permanece en el, y el en Dios.” - 1Juan 4:15
¿Qué tan fuerte es su fe? Cuando usted tiene la
oportunidad de defender su fe o clarificar alguna
pregunta sobre su fe, ¿Lo hace? ¿O se queda callado para que los damás no piensen mal de usted?
Ore para tener la valentía y la fuerza en su fe para
compartir su experiencia con los damás.
NO se olvide de anotar la cantidad de
su donacion en sus sobres dominicales
cada semana para darle el credito apropiado
