A Message from the Pastor

Good Steward: Thank you everyone for being good stewards of God’s generous gifts of time, talent, treasure. In gratitude for His many, good, undeserved bountiful gifts—we return a portion to Him. Of my time, I give Him the Sabbath; of my talents, I give my abilities to the church/a charity, of my treasure I return in a tithe to the church and charitable gifts to those in need. Good stewardship over the gifts Our Father in His goodness has generously given me. October Rosary October is the month of the Holy Rosary. Our 54 day Novena concluded with a special Holy Hour on October 7, the feast of the Holy Rosary. On that occasion the large rosary we use with our group rosary in the grotto is framed around the statue of Mary. May I remind us to pray that rosary daily. Confirmation Mass Next Saturday, October 31 Bishop Pates will be here to celebrate Confirmation for our high school students who have been preparing these past two years. Let us pray for openness to the Holy Spirit for these young people. Same Sex Attraction Articles The latest issue of the Catholic Mirror was very helpful for those with same-sex attraction. It is on page 4 by deacon Mike Manno. Well worth reading for all us.

Catholics Come Home Do you know someone away from the Catholic Church? Help bring your fiends and loved-ones back to the church! Do you know that the average American spends 38 hours per week consuming media, and TV and internet are the top two? This Lent the Diocese of Des Moines is partnering with Catholicscomehome.org to air inspiring TV commercials throughout our diocese inviting those away from the faith back “home” to the Catholic Church! Bishop Pates asks that you prayerfully support this effort by generously contributing to the special collection on November 78. Visit CatholicsComeHome.org to view the TV commercials that with your support, will be airing diocesanwide from Ash Wednesday through Easter Sunday. God Bless your Support!

Parish Library Pick-of-the-Week Have you heard that the Catholic Church is anti-science? Antiwomen? Anti-sex? Anti-gay? Have you heard that Catholics are rigid bigots or that priestly celibacy is the cause of sexual abuse of minors? What is fact, and what is fiction? Without excusing or justifying wrongdoing, Christopher Kaczor’s book. The Seven Big Myths about the Catholic Church, pinpoints misinformation and misunderstandings about many of today’s hot-button topics. The Seven Big Myths about the Catholic Church is a clearly written, concise and charitable look at the suspicions and hostile accusations often hurled at Catholics. The Seven Big Myths about the Catholic Church is engaging to read and is a great conversational resource. If you have ever wanted an easy-to-read and easy-to-understand treatment of difficult issues, there may be no better place to begin than by checking out The Seven Big Myths about the Catholic Church from our Parish Library.

Oracion: Oración A La Virgen María

Virgen María, tú que viste fluir del cuerpo de Jesús la Sangre bendita con que Jesús tu hijo me compró y ofreció para el perdón de mis pecados. Tú, Bendita Virgen Maria que sentiste un dolor muy grande por la Sangre que vertió toda su cara, por la Sangre que brotaba en todo su cuerpo, por los latigazos recibidos, esa Sangre que brotó de sus manos y sus pies cuando traspasaron los clavos, esa Sangre que brotó de su costado, cuando le atravesaron la lanza. Por esa Sangre te entrego todas mis preocupaciones para que

Men and Women Bible Studies

Prayer of the Month Lord, God of Abraham, God of the Prophets, God of Love, you created us and you call us to live as brothers and sisters. Give us the strength daily to be instruments of peace; enable us to see everyone who crosses our path as our brother or sister. Keep alive within us the flame of hope, so that with patience and perseverance we may opt for dialogue and reconciliation. In this way may peace triumph at last, and may the words “division”, “hatred”, and “war” be banished from the heart of every man and woman. Excerpt from Pope Francis’ Prayer of Peace
