Gospel Reflection
In this life, conversion is a goal which is never fully attained: on the path which the disciple is called to follow in the footsteps of Jesus, conversion is a lifelong task. While we are in this world, our intention to repent is always exposed to temptations. Since “no one can serve two masters.”

2016 Theme—US Conference of
Catholic Bishops

This Sunday, September 18th, the parishes of our Diocese will join with the Church throughout the United States in observing Catechetical Sunday. Our deep appreciation goes out to all who are involved in parish CCD religious education; to those men and women who “teach as Jesus did” by sharing and spreading our Catholic faith with all God’s people; adults, teenagers, and the little ones. We invite all parishioners to share in this religious ministry by their prayers and Christian example. All parents of public school children are encouraged to register their children in our parish CCD Religious Education Program.

RITE OF CHRISTIAN INITIATION OF ADULTS—is known as RCIA. Classes begin with a special inquiry evening and registration on THURSDAY, OCTOBER 20th at 6:30 pm in the Rectory Meeting Room. RCIA is an ongoing process of individual faith development for those who are interested in becoming a Catholic or for baptized adults who have not yet received the Sacraments of Communion or Confirmation. For more information call the Rectory Office: 944-4466.
All parishioners and friends are encouraged to attend the parish OLDIES DANCE to be held on SATURDAY, OCTOBER 15TH at 6:30 pm in the Church Hall. Enjoy a Hot Buffet and great entertainment by DJ Bobby Brown. Ticket donation is $25.00 and are available at the parish office or from committee members. PLAN NOW TO ATTEND!

A GRATEFUL THANK YOU!—to the Hermandad Virgen de Urkupina group for their generous donation of $2,060.00 to our church on the occasion of the FEAST OF URKUPINA which was held on August 20th. Their support is greatly appreciated. Our sincere thanks!

CONFIRMATION CLASS REGISTRATION will be held on Friday, September 30th at 6:00 pm in the Rectory Meeting Room. Students should be in the 9th and 10th grade and MUST provide a BAPTISM CERTIFICATE AND FIRST COMMUNION CERTIFICATE for registration to be accepted, and a parent must attend with the student. We welcome the young adults of our parish to learn and experience this beautiful sacrament.

If We Pray
If we pray, we will believe;
If we believe, we will love;
If we love, we will serve.

Sponsoring the bulletin can be written in three ways: (1) This week’s bulletin is sponsored by (name of sponsor) or (2) This week’s bulletin is sponsored in memory of (a deceased loved one) or (3) this week’s bulletin is sponsored in memory of a deceased loved one by (name of sponsor or sponsors).
