The Thanksgiving Food Drive continues through the 18th of

November. Students are encouraged to bring canned and boxed food items (no glass) to the Parish Center and place them in the containers provided. Everyone’s participation is greatly appreciated. All the food that is collected will be distributed the Monday before Thanksgiving to families of the parish who need a little help at this time of year.

Thanksgiving Food Baskets

The Confirmation students will host the annual Turkey Feather Pull in November. The students will create a large turkey on a bulletin board with lots of colorful feathers. Each feather will have a food item printed on it. Parishioners are invited and encouraged to pluck a feather from the turkey, purchase the item listed, and return that item to the church office no later than 9am on Sunday, November 22nd. Many of the

items will require refrigeration so it is best to bring those items to the parish hall on Saturday, Nov. 21st, or Sunday, Nov. 22nd. The food items will make up the Thanksgiving food baskets which the Confirmation students will assemble the morning of the 22nd. The baskets will be available for the families to pick up on Monday, Nov. 23rd.

Please contact the church office if you or a family you know needs a food

basket for Thanksgiving. Families must sign up no later than November

8th. Please contact the church office by November 8th to fill out a

request form.

Children’s Christmas Eve Mass and Pageant

The annual Children’s Christmas Eve Mass

and Pageant will take place on Thursday,

Dec. 24th, at 4pm. Children are encouraged

to sign up to be one of the characters in the pageant. The characters include Mary,

Joseph, the 3 Maji (wisemen), angels and shepherds. The children will dress in costume and participate in the pageant as an adult narrates the Christmas story. The children do not speak.

There will be two practices for the pageant, and the children must attend both practices. The dates for those practices will be announced in the next week. To sign your child up for the pageant, please contact Susan Warner in the Religious Education office.


Thirty-Second Week of Ordinary Time

On the Thirty-second Sunday in Ordinary

Time, Mark’s Gospel has us listen to Jesus

contrast a scribe (the professional interpreters of the law in his day) who enjoys honors for himself, with a poor widow who donates to the temple poor box the little she has. The

woman’s generous heart must have moved him deeply. Monday is the Feast of the Dedication of the Lateran

Basilica in Rome. Tuesday is the Memorial of Saint Leo the Great, Pope and Doctor of the Church and

Wednesday the Memorial of Saint Martin of Tours,

Bishop. Thursday is the Memorial of Saint Josaphat, Bishop and Martyr. Friday we remember the saint known

as Mother Cabrini, Saint Frances Xavier Cabrini, Virgin. As we draw toward the end of the liturgical year, our first reading this week is taken from Wisdom, a book written to encourage a downtrodden Jewish community. The vivid imagery offers us a view of the glory and justice of the Lord. “The souls of the just are in the hand of God, and no torment shall touch them.”

In Luke’s Gospel, Jesus turns his focus away from the Pharisees and back to his followers. “If your brother sins, rebuke him; and if he repents, forgive him.” He tells them the duties of discipleship, asking if a master should be grateful to a servant who does what is commanded. “So should it be with you.” We read of the curing the ten lepers - yet only one returns to give thanks. “Stand up and go; your faith has saved you.” He also tells us that we should not spend our lives looking for the coming of the Kingdom “for behold, the Kingdom of God is among you.” The Kingdom of God is coming, when we least expect it and, “Whoever


seeks to preserve his life will lose it, but whoever loses it will save it.” We must “pray always without becoming weary.”


Sigue estos seis pasos:

1. Déjate querer. Recuerda que la venida de Cristo, su vida, su Pasión, su Iglesia, sus sacramentos…todo es obra suya para que tú y yo y todos tuviéramos su gracia y nos salváramos.

2. ¿Cómo se dice, niño? Si piensas en todo lo que Cristo ha hecho por tu bien, la conciencia te dirá: ¿Cómo se dice, niño?

3. Trata de darle una explicación. La conciencia no dejará de hacerte penosas comparaciones entre lo que Cristo ha tratado de hacer por ti y las dificultades que tú le has puesto. Algún amargor de boca te vendrá. Háblale de esto a Cristo. 4. Ya no lo vuelvo a hacer. También háblale de esto. De que ya estás de acuerdo otra vez en obedecerlo, sobre todo en eso en que has fallado y que prometes confesar, y dile que confías en su ayuda.

5. No confundas las cosas. No creas que por saber que tarde o temprano puedes fallar, ya por eso no estás arrepentido.

6. Dale “siga” a un amor sincero. Ofender a Cristo ya te duele en algún grado. Ahí está lo principal. Basta con decirle sinceramente que lo sientes.

La contrición, es decir, la pena o dolor que nos da el haber ofendido a Dios por ser él tan bueno con uno, es necesaria para tener el deseo de mejorar nuestra vida, y nos ha de mover a acercarnos al sacramento de la Reconciliación.
