Thirtieth Sunday in Ordinary Time

Oct 25, 2020

Bearing in mind our nation’s challenges and the need for wise, moral, civic leadership, the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops has offered an Election Novena to help Catholics prepare for the 2020 election. For nine consecutive days, from Monday 26 October through Tuesday 3 November, participants will be encouraged to pray one Our Father, one Hail Mary, and one Glory Be for the day’s intention. A closing prayer for elected leaders will be offered on day ten, Wednesday 4 November. The daily intentions can be found on an insert in the bulletin.

       Our Gift Card program generates a lot of cash (from the vendors–not you!) to help pay our mortgage.  If you are planning to use Gift Cards as Christmas presents or stocking stuffers this year, please consider using the order form in the bulletin this weekend to purchase them.  Forms are also available on our parish website.  Orders are due in the Parish Office by Monday 30 November to ensure Christmas delivery.

       There are two ways during November to honor those who have died during the past year.  You can attend our annual Memorial Mass on the evening of Thursday 5 November (see bulletin insert) or you can submit names for the Litany of Remembrance which will be prayed during all the Masses on the weekend of 7/8 November (see form in bulletin).  Please help us organize for these events by submitting names of recently-deceased loved ones by Monday 2 November.

       With COVID-19 restrictions, it isn’t possible for us to hold our HarvestFest as we did last year—so we are trying something different and going virtual.  Through 31 October you can go on-line to support this annual fundraiser.  Check out our participating vendors and do some fall shopping!  Our parish website offers more information and the link.

       We could use your help (the whole family?) at a mulching party in the parking lot rain gardens next Saturday morning—more information is in the bulletin
