Respect Life Month - October is Respect Life Month.  Please join in the following activities for respect for life:

Text Box:   “I am happy to say that the new handbells have arrived, and so we are ready to begin rehearsals! Let’s try for Monday evening at 7 pm for our first! All interested ringers are welcome. We’ll have a memorial Mass for those for whom the bells are dedicated and blessing of the bells at a later date. We are extremely grateful for all those who made these bells possible. We still have a few memorials available which would help us pay the remaining bill.
     “October is the month of the Rosary, and also Respect Life month. As such, we will be having a parish outdoor Living Rosary on Wednesday evening at 7:30 pm. The PSR students will be participating in this, so parents are particularly encouraged to come and participate with us and your children.
     “Last week’s theme for That Man is You! was on the 4 leadership roles of men. Next Saturday morning we will be hearing about the 5 Leadership traits of men. We are getting into some important stuff about what it means to be a man after God’s own heart. All men are welcome to come anytime and see what this program is all about.
     “Looking ahead, the annual diocesan Priests’ Institute will be Oct 11 – 15, so I’ll be gone during that week, and there won’t be daily Mass. Plus, I’ll be gone from Nov 1 – 12 for a visit back to Magadan, Russia for their 20th anniversary celebration. ”...Fr. Dave

Stewardship Quote - When will I have given enough--of my income, of my time, of my talents?  Today's Gospel suggests that only total stewardship will do: "When you have done all you have been commanded to do, say, 'We are useless servants. We have done not more than our duty."
