Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
Praised be Jesus, our Lord and Savior! On the threshold of a new liturgical year, Fr. Al, if he were still alive, would challenge us to desire to be holy more than we want to breathe. We pray that this advent and Christmas season be a rebirth of Jesus in our hearts, and that this new year be among the most profound times of grace in our lives.
Thank you for your obedience to the Lord in supporting His work through Presentation Ministries. We know that many of you are struggling financially and we thank you for your offering to support the One Bread, One Body (OBOB) ministry.
Presentation Ministries is a lay association of the faithful under the authority of the Archbishop of Cincinnati. We are solely supported by the generosity of those who believe in what we do. There is no one at Presentation Ministries that receives any pay, at least not on this earth. We have a three fold mission:
- Draw others to a personal relationship with Jesus through the word.
- Teach and equip our brothers and sisters in Christ to be true disciples of Jesus through the gifts of the Holy Spirit so that they can in turn "go out and make disciples of all nations".
- Encourage the formation of Home Based Communities
and the frequent reception of the sacraments.
In summary, everything we do is geared to encourage each other to daily scripture, prayer, the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, and communion. Thanks for helping to do this by sharing these booklets with your friends and enemies. We encourage you to continue to share the word by encouraging others to subscribe to One Bread, One Body.
Thanks to you for all that you do for Jesus and His church.
Your Brothers in Jesus,
George Schmidl and Jerry Cappel
(Directors of Presentation Ministries)
