October is “pro-life” month. Our Parish Pro-Life Committee is offering many opportunities to participate in the cause for life. One of the best ways to be involved is, of course, by praying. The entire month of October is dedicated to the Most Holy Rosary. The Rosary is prayed after our 8:00am Mass each day and at 2:15 on Tuesday afternoons. This bulletin cover has several other opportunities to pray a Rosary for Life.
October is also the time of the year when the Church celebrates “Stewardship Awareness.” I found this inspiring thought on the Archdiocesan Office of Stewardship’s website….“Think of a time when you received an unexpected gift. Remember the surprise and sincere joy youfelt? You couldn’t help but respond with a heartfelt ‘thank you!’ Every day, God showers the gift of His mercy upon us. Every day! Sometimes we take this gift for granted. We forget to thank God. Other times, we neglect to share His gifts with others. When we do recognize the many blessings in our life, we respond with profound gratitude. Stewardship means first saying ‘thank you’ to God, and then becoming instruments of His mercy for others. Let’s all recommit to a life of faithful stewardship!”
I want to add my personal CONGRATULATIONS to our Scout Troop 671, especially their leaders, who recently celebrated 50 years of scouting here at SMMA. Well done!
Msgr. Norb Ernst – Pastor
