Dear Friends,

      “What I have, I give.” Those are words of St. Peter in the Acts of the Apostles. For me, they sum up beautifully what Sacrificial Giving is all about: giving back to God what God has given to us. It’s not the size of the gift that’s important, but rather that we give of our substance—giving what we have, even when it’s not easy.

       In these times when we are experiencing so much uncertainty, we give thanks for the many blessings we have received. And we find ourselves thinking about the many people in our midst and in our world who lack even the basic necessities of life.

        The need is overwhelming, but as a community of faith, we can do so much more than we can as individuals. Thanks to your support, we can celebrate in a powerful and fitting way the mysteries of our faith. We can reach out in the name of Christ to the homeless, the poor, the elderly, and the immigrant. And we can share the treasure of faith with those who are seeking to know Jesus.

        Let us commit ourselves to be good stewards of the gifts God has given us: by participating regularly and actively in the Sunday Eucharist; by sharing our time and talent with our community; and by making a prayerful commitment to support St. James Cathedral financially, to the extent we are able, in the coming year.

      I pray that this year, each one of us will experience the joy of Sacrificial Giving: of giving freely, giving back to God a portion of what he has given to us.
Father Michael G. Ryan
