Dear Friends,

With this week’s liturgy we do indeed conclude our Church Year and move toward the holy season of Advent, the Sunday after Thanksgiving .

Let us concentrate this week though on Jesus, coming into our existence as “brother” and “friend,” to show us the way.

Peace and love,

Pastor Kathy

Dear Friends,

With this Sunday, we are relentlessly moving toward the end of the Church Year–a time to reflect more deeply than usual, how our past year of faith has been.

Come; reflect with us this Sunday.

Peace and love,

Pastor Kathy

Bulletin – 32nd Sunday in Ordinary Time

  • Remember this Saturday night to set your clocks back one hour, so if you are coming to Mass, you will arrive at the right time.
  • Mass on Sunday, 11-7-21 will be at 10 A.M. COVID precautions are still in place–vaccinations required and the wearing of masks. Other precautions are also in place to keep us safe. Please begin thinking about your comfort level in perhaps having fellowship after Masses again once the children can be vaccinated. Let me know your thoughts and wishes.
  • Again, we will need two people to run for our board in January as two people would like to step down. Consider whether you might be called to serve in this way–duties are light.

Dear Friends,

We receive two powerful examples this week in our Scriptures, of persons, both women, who show us incredible ability to “believe” and to then act on their beliefs where personal giving in their lives is concerned. Let us ponder their actions and perhaps “grow” in our personal lives by watching them.

Peace and love,

Pastor Kathy
