       A Note from Deacon Mark         

What is new for this month is that Pope Francis has designated October as The Extraordinary Month of Mission.  Pope Francis called for this special month to remind people of their responsibility to share the Gospel and to proclaim the Gospel with renewed enthusiasm.  A missionary church, he said, “does not waste time lamenting things that go wrong, the loss of faithful, the values of a time now in the past.” Pope Francis shared that the church “does not seek safe oases to dwell in peace, but longs to be salt of the earth and a leaven in the world” because she knows her strength is Jesus himself, “not social or institutional relevance, but humble and gratuitous love.”  We are all called to be missionaries in some way in the ordinary circumstances of our lives.  Pope Francis shared that, “Yes, in this month the Lord is also calling you. The Lord is asking you to be a gift wherever you are, and just as you are, with everyone around you.”  Here is a prayer that would be good to pray each remaining day of October.


Prayer for the Extraordinary Month of Mission

Heavenly Father, when your only begotten Son Jesus Christ rose from the dead, He commissioned His followers to ‘go and make disciples of all nations’ and you remind us that through our Baptism we are made sharers in the mission of the Church. Empower us by the gifts of the Holy Spirit to be courageous and zealous in bearing witness to the Gospel, so that the mission entrusted to the Church, which is still very far from completion, may find new and efficacious expressions that bring life and light to the world. Help us make it possible for all peoples to experience the saving love and mercy of Jesus Christ, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, One God, forever and ever.  Amen.


Upon Further Reflection:

An Irish famer named Muldoon lived alone in the countryside with a small dog that he loved and doted on.  After many long years of faithful companionship, the dog finally died, so the farmer went to the parish priest and said, “Father, me dear old dog is dead.  Could you be saying a Mass for him?”


The priest replied, I’m very sorry to hear about your dog’s death.  But unfortunately I can’t say Mass for the poor creature.


Muldoon said, “I understand, Father, I do.  I guess I’ll go to the new denomination down the road; no tellin’ what they believe.  Do you think $500 is enough to donate for the service?


The priest replied 


In His mercy,


Deacon Mark

 

The Mass – A slice at a time The Concluding Rites 

To the concluding Rites belong the following: 

a) Brief announcements, should they be necessary. 

b) The Priest’s Greeting and Blessing, which on certain days and occasions is expanded and expressed by the Prayer over the People or another more solemn formula. 

c) The Dismissal of the people by the Deacon or the Priest, so that each may go back to doing good works, praising and blessing God. 

d) The kissing of the altar by the Priest and the Deacon, followed by a profound bow to the altar by the Priest, the Deacon, and the other ministers. 

 

 

 

Religious Education News

On Wednesday October 9, 2019 we had a visit from Leatha Grinhaug talking about St. Kateri and the Kateri Prayer Circle. She handed out Kateri prayer cards.  Thank you Leatha!  The classes discussed this Sunday’s Gospel about the 10 lepers and how important it is to be grateful to those who help us.  Thanks to Patty Fuller for bringing in extra treats!  We also registered one new student so we are up to 22. 

 

 

We need to persevere each day in being faithful Catholics and followers of Christ. Through our prayer and the example of what we say and do, we show the depth of our belief in our Savior. In this Extraordinary Missionary Month, may we encourage others to draw ever closer to Him, and offer our prayers and support for missionaries who do the same half a world away.

 

 

A Night of Healing

Experience the healing power of the Holy Spirit on Tuesday, October 22nd from 6:30 pm – 9:30 pm at St. John the Baptist Catholic Church in Howard.  Fr. Mathias Thelen and Patrick Reis of Encounter Ministries will lead a healing service open to anyone in need of healing. Catholic women, men, families, children, Christians from all denominations, and even those who don’t profess a faith, have come seeking healing and have left with incredible faith in Jesus Christ. The service will include a brief presentation of the Gospel, music, testimonies and prayer teams. Please invite all those who you know are in need of healing.  This is a free event and there is no registration ahead of time.  

 


Are you missing your crockpot?  

There are a lot of crockpots, pans, bowls, serving dishes, storage containers, etc. left over from funerals that were in the hall.  If you are missing something, please check the shelf in the hall by the Men’s bathroom. We will be donating these things to Thrift N Gift if not picked up by November 1s

Our parish is in need of choir members, accompanists and cantors. Please prayerfully considering sharing your time and talents with our church family.  Contact the parish office if you are interest – 715-799-3811.
