Bulletin – 28th Sunday in [Extra] Ordinary Time in a Pandemic

NO PHYSICAL MASS THIS WEEKEND-OCTOBER 11, 2020.

MARK YOUR CALENDARS FOR THE NEXT ZOOM MASS, OCTOBER 25, 2020.

______________________________________________________________________________

Dear Friends,

We continue in these weeks, winding down the Church Year, with such beautiful weather in the Midwest. We are told this week, as most weeks, that our God welcomes all of us, but most poignantly this week, in the story of those invited to the wedding feast.

Please be with us in spirit as we reflect on our need, “to rise to the occasion.”

Peace and love,

Pastor Kathy

Bulletin – 27th Sunday in [Extra] Ordinary Time

Dear Friends,

NO MASS IN PERSON THIS SUNDAY, OCTOBER 4, 2020–Feast of St. Francis of Assisi as well!

Next Zoom Mass, Sunday, October 25, 2020 at 10 A.M.–mark your calendars!

______________________________________________________________________________

This week we will be treated to a homily from Pastor Dick Dahl. Thank you Dick, in advance! Besides this being the 27th Sunday in [Extra] Ordinary Time, it is also the feast day of St. Francis of Assisi–who probably more than any individual since our brother, Jesus, loved most perfectly the world and all its creatures.

We are likened today to a “vineyard”–called, each of us, to produce a “harvest.” This parable of Jesus represents good in our world as our God first showed us the way. May we ponder all this during the next week.

Peace and love,

Pastor Kathy

Bulletin – 26th Sunday in [Extra] Ordinary Time in a Pandemic

THIS SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 27, 2020 AT 10 A.M. CDT, OUR NEXT ZOOM MASS WILL BE HAPPENING–HOPE YOU CAN JOIN US! –Watch for link later in the week!

______________________________________________________________________________

Dear Friends,

The heart of the Scriptures for this week is that we would strive to be our best! We constantly are challenged between good and evil and the continuum in between–is “just good enough,” good enough for us, or is God calling us to more?

Come; Zoom with us this weekend and ponder all this.

Peace and love,

Pastor Kathy

Dear Friends,

I have continued thoughts on “hope,” as lifted up in our Scriptures for this Sunday as it seems we are all in need of this virtue in these times in which we live where in some corners, lies and selfishness abound. But hope causes us all to look to all the good that is equally around us and concentrate on that as we try as a nation to eradicate the other. Pray with us this week that more and more; we can be the change we want to see!

Peace and love,

Pastor Kathy
