Prayer is God’s suggestion box

3rd Sunday

Baseball / batting averages


Readings – God is batting 1.000!
All ninevites!
Abandoning evil ways
Abandoning livelihood, family
Abandonment leads to fulfillment

Put God first
Call to abandon anything in the way
He is eternal / fulfills
World isn’t eternal / doesn’t last / fulfill
Time of fulfillment!
Kingdom is at hand

What is God calling us to abandon
Prayer = God’s suggestion box for us

     Need to pray to know what He suggests how we repent
     Open our hearts and minds

Enjoy Baseball While Supporting Our Priests!

On Sunday, August 28, the DC Padres, a baseball team consisting entirely of Catholic priests and seminarians, will play their final game of the 2016 season at Prince George’s Stadium (home of the Bowie Baysox).

This will be a game to remember! Bishop Holley will be there, and the Padres are ready to win. And let’s remember that our own Fr. Greg is on the Padres team. The Padres face off against the Bishop McNamara Mustangs at about 5-5:30pm (shortly after the 2pm Baysox game ends).

Keep your eye on the DC Padres website ( and Facebook page for updates and info about how to purchase tickets, or call Mary at 240-565-1680 if you have questions.

Mark your calendars now and tell your friends. Let’s fill the stadium in support of our priests and seminarians!
