The second collection this weekend will be our Monthly Utilities Collection.

The second collection next weekend supports Catholic World Missions. By Baptism, all Catholics are called to participate in the mission of the Church and share their faith as missionaries. World Mission Sunday gathers support for the pastoral and evangelization programs and needs of more than 1,150 mission dioceses in Africa, Asia, the Pacific Islands and remote regions in Latin America. The funds gathered on World Mission Sunday are distributed in the Pope’s name by the Society for the Propagation of the Faith – a Pontifical Mission Society. Please use either an envelope from your mini-packet or one available at the ushers’ stands.

This weekend Christmas cards showcasing last year’s Christmas altar and manger scene will be available after the Masses in the back of the church. The pictures were taken by a professional photographer and come with an English or Polish verse. Cards are $2.00. The original photographs are also being sold.

Clothing Drive – The list of wanted items and the drop-off dates is posted at the back of the church. Thank you to all who have been bringing in their items for this fundraiser.

The Holy Trinity Senior Citizens Club is holding its annual “Fall Festival” downstairs in the Parish Hall on Saturday, November 3, from 9:00 AM to 6:00 PM. Our kitchen includes kielbasa sandwiches and homemade gołąbki, pierogi, kapusta and chop suey. As always, we will be having the multi-ethnic bake table and the raffle section with its variety of enticing prizes. Opłatki will also be available as well as the new Christmas cards showcasing last year’s Christmas altar and manger scene. The raffle drawing will take place shortly after the 4:00 PM Mass. Come and bring your family and friends to help support the Club and Parish, which receives a large portion of the profits from this event. Hope to see you there.

Twenty-eighth Sunday in Ordinary Time

A modest proposal

Jonathan Swift set his 18th – century readers on fire when he “modestly” suggested that poverty in Ireland could be ended if the Irish would but resolve to eat their children. This grotesque recommendation was neither serious nor a joke, but something else: a wake- up call to the plight of the desperate. When Jesus offers his modest proposal of total renunciation of our property, we’re left in the same boat as Swift’s audience. Is Jesus serious or kidding? What is he saying about what’s most vital for life? Can’t we follow him – and drag all our cool stuff along?
