Suggested text for faith sharing: Today’s Gospel, the short form
Step One: Listen to the Word
When you hear Jesus’ teaching today, what words or phrases strike you? What image from Mark’s Gospel
lingers in your memory?
Step Two: Look into Your Life
Question for Children: Name some ways that you can serve others.
Question for Youth: Jesus changed the way we think of leadership to be someone who serves others. How are
you a leader in school, your family, the parish and/or your community?

serve the needs of all. Are we
willing to give our life in service
to our brothers and sisters?
(Mark 10:35-45)
collection last weekend was
$1322.00. Our second collection
was $505.00. Thank you for
your offerings in support of our
parish as a place of Christian
“For the Son of Man did not
come to be served, but to serve
and to give his life as a ransom
for many.” (Mark 10:45)
If you held a mirror up to your
life, would it reflect God’s love
and grace? If you are struggling
with this, try changing your
attitude from “I want more” to
“thank you God for everything
you have given me, I have
enough to share”. This change
in perspective will bring you joy
through service to others.
