The Little Burgundy Book: Yup, we have another color(ing) book in the vestibule of St. Peters.

THE LITTLE BURGUNDY BOOK
REFLECTIONS ON STEWARDSHIP FROM ST. MARK

Many have liked the “little books” that have been available in Advent, Lent and Easter. Today, you can pick up a new little book that is focused on the Gospel of St. Mark. We begin “ordinary time” this week with the end of the Easter season. The readings of ordinary time are from the Gospel of st. Mark this year so these daily reflections will be of help for your prayer. Help yourself and share it with anyone you think would like one.

This new “Little Book” will inform you about “Green Burials.” (See “Thursday, third week” when you get your copy.) We wonder when the Parish Cemetery Committee will have the green burial option available for the parishioners of St. Peter’s. We also wonder whether the option will cost more than a traditional burial. Isn’t that the way it works with “green” and “organic” things these days?

As noted above, the main theme is “stewardship.” It’s unfortunate, however, that The Little Burgundy Book can’t focus on stewardship without revealing a bias against traditional interpretations of the Gospel of St. Mark. (See “Saturday, third week” for an example when you get your copy.)

Parish Pastoral Council Minutes: The minutes for the most recent Pastoral Council meeting have been posted. We will discuss some of the entries at a later time.
