THE MESSAGE
You will see many T-Shirts with messages on them at the Mission.
(Some of those shirts are featured below.)  
But, the way we live conveys a message to those around us too-
about who we are and what we truly believe.
What message do you convey with your life as a Catholic?
People watch us -
Our children, parents, friends, neighbors, co-workers, and strangers.
They all watch.

What message do you convey to the world
with your life?

We can be messengers of hope and love.
Or not.
We can live all that Jesus taught.
Or not.
We can show the world that our faith has meaning.
Or not.

Our volunteers are doers of the Word,
not just sayers of the Word!
They convey a message of hope and love-
not just with their clothing,
but with their lives.
Mission of Our Lady of the Angels

Your life is a gift from God.  
What you do with your life is your gift to God.

Is what makes you wealthy,
the same thing that makes your life rich?
You know that the best things in life aren't things!

What do you really care about?
Who do you care about?
Who did Jesus care about?

Hmmmm. Now there's a frank response....
What about you?  

Yeah... You know He's knocking!
You hear Him.
Maybe it's time to step out and...

If you haven't visited the Mission and
become part of the Mission family, come.  Now.  
Now is a very acceptable time.

Why?  Because...

Yes, come join us- a community of faith.
A community of believers who care  
about more than just themselves.

Why?  Because we are One Body

1 Corinthians 12:12 - 26

For even as the body is one and yet has many members, and all the
members of the body, though they are many, are one body, so also is
Christ.  For by one Spirit we were all baptized into one body, whether Jews
or Greeks, whether slaves or free, and we were all made to drink of one
Spirit.

For the body is not one member, but many. If the foot says, “Because I am
not a hand, I am not a part of the body,” it is not for this reason any the less
a part of the body.  And if the ear says, “Because I am not an eye, I am not
a part of the body,” it is not for this reason any the less a part of the body.  
If the whole body were an eye, where would the hearing be? If the whole
were hearing, where would the sense of smell be?  

But now God has placed the members, each one of them, in the body, just
as He desired.  If they were all one member, where would the body be?  But
now there are many members, but one body.  And the eye cannot say to the
hand, “I have no need of you”; or again the head to the feet, “I have no need
of you.”  On the contrary,it is much truer that the members of the body which
seem to be weaker are necessary;  and those members of the body which
we deem less honorable, on these we bestow more abundant honor, and
our less presentable members become much more presentable,  whereas
our more presentable members have no need of it. But God has so
composed the body, giving more abundant honor to that member which
lacked, so that there may be no division in the body, but that the members
may have the same care for one another.  

And if one member suffers, all the members suffer with it;
if one member is honored, all the members rejoice with it.

Here's one message we convey:

There are many messages conveyed by the
volunteers at the mission: messages of love,
caring, compassion, and faith.

Here's another...

To those we serve, it surely must seem
as if our volunteers "have their backs."

WE ARE ONE BODY

....WHAT YOU DO WITH YOUR LIFE IS YOUR GIFT TO GOD.

Wondering what to do with
your life?  

What does God want you
to do?

Do you let God lead you
where He wants you to be?

Did He lead you here
today?

We hope so,  and we hope
to see you soon!

WE ARE CHURCH!

In every time and place,
the Church is called to
grow in unity through
constant conversion to
Christ, whose saving
work is proclaimed by the
successors of the
apostles and celebrated
in the sacraments.

-Pope Benedict XVI, on
his visit to America in
April 2008

On November 21, 1964,
Catholic bishops from all
over the world ratified, “The
Dogmatic Constitution on
the Church.”  This was one
of the first documents
approved at the Second
Vatican Council.  This
document returned to the
early Christian
understanding of the Body
of Christ and proclaimed
that the Church is the
People of God.

42. 'God is love, and he who abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him' (1 Jn. 4:16). God has poured out his
love in our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us (cf. Rom. 5:5); therefore the first and most
necessary gift is charity, by which we love God above all things and our neighbor because of him. But if charity is to
grow and fructify in the soul like a good seed, each of the faithful must willingly hear the word of God and carry out his
will with deeds, with the help of his grace; he must frequently partake of the sacraments, chiefly the Eucharist, and take
part in the liturgy; he must constantly apply himself to prayer, self-denial, active brotherly service and the practice of all
virtues. This is because love, as the bond of perfection and fullness of the law (cf. Col. 3:14; Rom. 13:10), governs,
gives meaning to, and perfects all the means of sanctification[12] Hence the true disciple of Christ is marked by love
both of God and of his neighbor.
