A message from our Rector

Dear parishioners:

Greetings in the Name of Christ our Lord!

"Peace, Love and Sharing."

This is the theme for our Stewardship Campaign for the ensuing year and I'm appreciative of how this wasrecommended to the Vestry and subsequently approved.

I am also thrilled that this theme is reflected on our Stewardship Campaign Handout in the form of a circle and further indentified as "Symbols of Stewardship." As such (in a circular fashion) it alludes to its interconnectedness; it departs from a linear understanding as in "Peace" being first, then "Love" and then "Sharing." It does, on the contrary, allow us to think that it could be the case that "Love" precedes the two or that "Sharing" does not have to be premised by "Peace." We can "share" because we "love" and thus gives us "peace."

Its interconnectedness character is amplified by the various Scripture passages. Paul's Letter to the Philippians says: "And the peace of God, which surpasses all undersatnding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus." (Philippians 4:7) Paul also tells us "Let all you do be done in love." (I Corinthians 16:14) And in Paul's Letter to the church in Rome, we read: "Contribute to the needs of the saints and seek to show hospitality." (Romans 12:13)

These passages become more meaningful as we enter the time to seriously consider our responsibilites as faithful stewards of God's creation and how it impacts our commitment towards the upkeep of our parish. Stewardship means not only "sharing" a generous portion back to God, the God Love, but also to share similar generous portion to others, including our faith community, through which, others are gifted. This brings about in us a kind of "peace" knowing that we continue to move on in our mission.

As I've said in the past, Ascension Parish meets her financial needs thru an Operating Budget that includes as revenues, pledges from her members and benefactors. This is so significant in our attempt to face the future of Ascension. Your parish leadership is hoping for a favorable response to our campaign.

We have designated Sunday, November 22nd as Commitment Sunday and I invite you to come on that Sunday and participate in a visual presentation of our pledges.

Thank you so much and I hope to see as many of you on that day. On behalf of the Vestry, I remain

In God's Service,

Fr. Bayani
