Twenty-seventh Sunday in Ordinary Time

Oct 2, 2022

Welcome to Bishop Dennis Madden who joins us at the 5:00 PM Saturday Mass this weekend to confirm 20 of our teen parishioners.  Our faith community prays that their lives may now reveal more vibrantly the presence of God’s Holy Spirit in their daily decisions, actions and interactions. 

       October is celebrated nationally as “Respect Life” month.  Pope Francis has regularly stressed that all members of the Church can bring healing to the world by upholding the beauty of human life, as well as by sharing God’s unfailing mercy with others in a variety of ways. Thanks to all those who are participating in the local 40 Days for Life program this year, and those who will participate in the Life Chain this weekend.

       Our parish is co-hosting (with the Frederick Police Department) a “Faith and Blue” event next Saturday evening on our parish grounds from 6-8 PM.  More details can be found on a bulletin insert this week.

       Our Gift Card program generates a lot of cash (from the vendors–not you!) that is currently being designated for the development of the old cemetery on our property as a Memorial Garden/Columbarium.  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 21 November to ensure Christmas delivery.

       The rosary is prayed in the school chapel (near the Parish Office) each Thursday at 11 AM and 6:30 PM.   A special opportunity to pray the rosary is planned for this Saturday 8 October at 12 Noon on the church plaza.  More information is available in the bulletin.

       The Nelson family is so appreciative for the outpouring of love they experienced at the time of Devaughn Nelson’s death from so many in our parish community.  Thanks again for bringing our parish mission statement to life in everyday experiences.

Fr. Keith
