Twenty-ninth Sunday in Ordinary Time

Oct 18, 2020

November holds a special place in church tradition as a time to remember our deceased loved ones.   You are invited to use the form on our parish website (or in the bulletin) to submit the names of family members and friends who have died during the past year, so that they can be included in a Litany of Remembrance to be prayed at all Masses on the weekend of 7/8 November.  Those who are longer deceased may be listed as intentions on the All Souls envelope received in your envelope packet (which will be placed on the altar for weekday Mass during November), or in the Book of the Dead in church.

       Please remember that the second collection next weekend is for our Haiti Partnership Fund.  This fund supports our commitment to our sister parish St. Hubert (in Ennery) to stipend six lay catechists for their outlying missions ($7,200 total per year)– and we are also now planning to designate funds to support elementary education and nutrition at a nearby school (Institution Jerome Bellanton) with your generosity.  The newsletter insert in this week’s bulletin offers more details about our Haiti Partnership relationship and activities.  We have recently completed our commitment of $30,000 to assist with the rebuilding of the church roof at our sister parish.

       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.  From 15-31 October you can go on-line to support this annual fundraiser.  Check out our participating vendors and do some fall shopping!  An insert in the bulletin offers more information and the link.

       We have a full-time administrative assistant job opening coming up soon in our parish office, and are accepting resumes for this position until this Tuesday 20 October.  If you would like to apply, please contact Pat O’Connor in the parish office.  The job description can be found on our parish website.
