Octubre - mes del Santo Rosario
17-18 de octubre - 29º domingo del Tiempo Ordinario
Este domingo es el Domingo Mundial de las Misiones
El mensaje del Evangelio de este fin de semana: De manera muy semejante al hombre rico del Evangelio
de la semana pasada, los discípulos todavía no han comprendido que solo encontramos el poder y seguridad
verdaderos cuando confiamos en Dios. Ni la riqueza ni el poder pueden impedir o vencer la muerte.
Espiritualidad 911¿Sabía Ud. que tenemos un grupo solo para las mujeres de nuestra
parroquia? Nosotras nos reunimos el tercer lunes de cada mes en el salón de la casa parroquial. Nuestra
próxima reunión será el lunes, 19 de octubre a las 7 de la noche. Puesto que octubre es el mes del Santo
Rosario, empezaremos la reunión rezando los Misterios Gozosos. En las reuniones de los próximos meses
planeamos discutir la Encíclica del Papa Francisco sobre El cuidado de la casa común, o sea, nuestro planeta,
sus pueblos y todas sus criaturas.
Uno de los beneficios de nuestros encuentros es el apoyo y camaradería que compartimos unas con otras. Si
Ud. necesita un descanso de su rutina y pasar un rato rezando y compartiendo con otras mujeres
sobre su fe y su relación con Jesús, asista a nuestras reuniones del lunes, las cuales suelen durar
una hora y media.
Dear St. Patrick’s,
I thank you so much in the name of the 7, 8 and 9 grades students for the money to purchase textbooks. I
went to Fonkoze last Friday and the money was available. I started to buy the textbooks and plastic to protect
them. Pictures of that will get to you soon. School doing well, parishioners and I are excited to see the group
in March. We started the school with cafeteria because we received rice, beans, oil from Caritas and the
money from St Patrick’s to purchase firewood and spices.
Thank you and God bless you all.

We Seek Your Help

the revised Order of Mass and is missing many of the
supplements. It is time to order new hymnals for St. Patrick

purchase. It is complete with all the new information and has a

As previously, a name plate will be added inside the front cover of the new hymnal in
memory of your deceased loved one or in honor of a family member or friend. You can also
choose to donate toward the purchase of multiple books.
Our used hymnals will be donated to two parishes in Appalachia. One of those parishes is in
West Virginia, where Father Joe served when he was first ordained. So your previous book
offering will continue to "serve others in your name."
Envelopes are provided for your tax-deductible donation and can be dropped in the
collection basket or brought to the parish office.
