Please note that website sign-up is disabled on weekends when the manual sign-up sheets are in the back of church (both cannot be used at the same time...).

Also, greeters are needed on the days of photos being taken.  Two persons will man the front table as greeters where families/households check in.  Greeters will work for four-hour periods.  The sign-up sheet is in the back of church.  You can call Angie McCoy with questions about greeters at 304-5918.


Please pick up your Stewardship Forms on the tables in the back of church if you have not done so.

The forms are to be returned the weekend of November 29th and 30th.  Thank you.

( During Sunday's Angelus, Pope Francis reflected on the parable of the talents, where God gives every person gifts, that are meant to be put to good use.

"Talents are the heritage God trusts us with. Which heritage? His Word, His Eucharist, Faith in God the Father, His forgiveness... So many things. His greatest treasures. Jesus doesn't ask us to keep His grace in a safety box. None of that. He wants us to use it to help others”


Christ the King Sunday


"Fr. Barron comments on the new Roman Missal. This new translation is more fit for the celebration of the liturgy because it helps us address Christ in language befitting a King."

Gospel: Matthew 25: 31-46

( In his homily at Casa Santa Marta, Pope Francis once again spoke on those who identify themselves as Christians, yet live like "pagans”. He explained that they cause scandal, especially because they do not forgive.

"Without faith you cannot live without scandal and nor always forgive. No one with books, going to conferences, can have faith. Faith is a gift of God that comes to you and this why the Apostles asked Jesus, 'Increase our faith!'"

Pope Francis concluded that a Christian that does not forgive is not a Christian, because in the Our Father, Jesus taught to ask forgiveness and to forgive.
