October 2: From the Pastor's Desk...

My Dear Parishioners,

This weekend is Respect Life Sunday. We purchased a wonderful packet of materials from the Diocese that contains a number of pamphlets that can be found in the pamphlet rack in the entrance. Please check these out and feel free to take materials that might help you to discuss various topics with family members. They all begin with “Life Matters” and cover the topics of abortion, contraception, the death penalty, persons with disabilities, embryo research, to the end of our days, reproductive technologies, and love and marriage.

Our Biblical Walk Through the Mass sessions have gone very well. Thirty-two individuals are coming together to learn about the Biblical foundation for the things we say and do during the Mass to enhance their celebration of the liturgy. The presenter, Dr. Edward Sri, is a biblical scholar and does an excellent job on the DVDs. If there is interest, we may run another series in the future. Contact the parish office if you would like to participate in a future program.

We welcome this weekend in the Rite of Election the following youth who will be preparing for the Sacrament of Confirmation in the year ahead. Please keep them and their families in prayer that they will be open to the presence and movement of the Holy Spirit in their lives.

Oremus pro invicem,
Fr. Tom
