Thank You.

Thank you to the following donors to the Parish Fund:
    Nocturnal Adoration Society

Second collections:
    September 18 – Clergy Trust
    September 25 – Cemetery Fund

The second collection for the weekend of October 1 and 2 supports the Holy Father’s “Peter Pence” collection that provides funds for emergency and disaster relief. This collection also provides support to The Catholic University of America that educates priests, lay people for ministry, and will assist the Inner-City Parishes of the Archdiocese of Boston. Your generosity will assist the Holy Father as well as the various missionary efforts at home and abroad.

Letters were sent out this past week asking for your help in funding the upcoming parish’s November 12th HOMEMADE POLISH FOOD TAKE OUT SALE. If you did not receive one, you may pick one up at the ushers’ stands. Order forms for the sale will be available at the beginning of October.

CORI time is here. MA State law mandates that any person 17 years of age and older, who serves as a volunteer in any parish ministry, must complete a CORI form (Criminal Offense Recor Info.). This form requires verification of identity with a photo document
(e.g. MA Driver’s License or passport). There are no exceptions to this requirement. See Deacon Steve.

Applying the word
Pray for the powerful
“Knowledge is power,” according to Ben Franklin. I won’t argue with that, but we also know that money is power, too, though of a different order. So along with pointing prophetic fingers at the rich and powerful, we should also remember our responsibility to pray for them. We Christians are quick to open soup kitchens on skid row and ministries to prisoners, but there’s no stampede to marshal a salvation army for those on the top of the material heap. There are souls to be saved in every social class and conversions to be sought at the heads of government, industry, and religion that may be crucial for those at the bottom of these structures.
Celebrity figures likewise have great influence that can be used profitably as easily as squandered, so why not harness it for good. Heads of households and classrooms, law enforcement and bosses of companies large and small all need our prayers for wisdom, discernment, moral strength, and compassion. If we can get the dishonest steward to exercise ambition for the cause of the children of light, everybody wins.

To me no other season
Could ever be so grand,
When in the Autumn of the year,
God smiles upon the land.
