Dear Holy Apostles Parish Family,
Every year, the diocese has the parishes
count how many people come to Mass. We do
this in over two weekends in October, so we
can look at the data over a period of time.
The numbers have stayed fairly stable. We
have 1700 to 1800 people go to Mass each
weekend, 500 of which go to the Spanish
Mass. The highest count ever was 2,300 in
2004 and 2005. It dropped to 1700 in 2006.
Since then it has been around 1800, plus or
It is good to realize that 500 attend the
Spanish Mass, so almost one-third of our
parish is Spanish-speaking. It is also helpful
to realize that only half of our people come
weekly, so it is hard to inform people who
attend on a sporadic basis. This is why electronic giving and electronic communication is
helpful. I do not get caught up with the
numbers, but it is good to be aware of what
they teach us. My real concern is the quality
of our experience when we are here. The
Family Faith Formation classes are finding
that they can do it very well 12 times a year
and get more out of it with less times. I am
hoping we learn from their experience to
use our time better.
Have a Blessed Week!
Father Paul
This school year, the Church of Holy Apostles
embarked on a new approach to passing on
our faith to our children. Family Faith Formation
is built on the principle that parents are the
first educators of their children. While the
traditional student class taught by adult volunteer catechists (Student Faith Formation)
is still available on Tuesday evenings, Family
Faith Formation takes place on Sunday mornings allowing for entire family participation.
Family Faith Formation sessions meet two
Sundays a month. It is the entire family (with
students in grades 1 through 7) that registers
for the sessions. The two hour class day begins at 9:30 AM with 10 minutes of fellowship
and a snack. This is followed by a presentation to the whole family on a particular topic,
which is then reinforced with active learning
through a craft project and/or game.

Men, is life too hectic? Could you use a day to regain
perspective and balance? Experience a new encounter
with our Risen Lord. A line-up of dynamic speakers will
share insights into living out authentic masculinity and
heroic virtue, drawing from their own faith journeys.
Mass, confession, the rosary, and private time will give
you the opportunity to reflect on what is going on in
your life and how Christ can help. The conference is on
Saturday, November 21, beginning at 8:50 AM at the
Holmes Student Center, DeKalb, IL. For tickets or details
contact your parish captain Butch Pintozzi (847-4170687 or [email protected]) or go to www.thetalk.org.
Rosaries Offered to Those Who Are Ill
Have you or someone you know been diagnosed with a
serious illness such as cancer? Michelle Anelli, a parish
member and cancer survivor likes to give patients comfort by giving them rosaries that she makes. They are
made from a variety of beads--crystal, glass, or wood-and often have a St. Agatha or St. Peregrine medallion.
She currently distributes them to patients at area cancer treatments centers.. She would like to expand to
offering a rosary to anyone else who is currently struggling with a serious illness. If you would like to receive a
rosary from Michelle (there is no cost), please contact
her at 815-355-8500 or [email protected]
Seeking Information Center Volunteers
Do you regularly attend the 5 PM Mass on either
Saturday or Sunday? Our Information Center Ministry is
currently in need of volunteers to staff the Center,
especially for these two Masses. No special skills are
required and training is provided. The time commitment
is very minimal—one evening Mass per month for about
15 to 20 minutes before and after Mass. If you are
interested in sharing your time and talent in this way,
please contact Peggy MacGregor at 815-728-0860 or
[email protected]

The most recent class topic was Prayer. Families
worked together on building a prayer block, writing a
family prayer and discussing the importance of prayer
in their families.
For the next hour, students are moved to age-specific
classes and taught by a catechist. Parents have their
own session—this week’s topic was about managing
anxiety and was presented by parish member and
licensed therapist, Geri Condon. These sessions are
geared toward helping parents handle various issues
and offer ways to improve or enhance the practice of
our faith. The adult sessions are offered in Spanish
and English. Childcare is available for children younger
than first grade. The final ten minutes are spent together again with a prayer and family members blessing one another.
In speaking to a few families as they left the class, all
of them expressed their excitement about spending
time together as a family.
Marianne Bojan, mother of Andrew, age 7, explained
that she loved the one-on-time she had with her son.
Being present allowed her to further explain and answer questions that he may have, especially important
this year as he will be receiving his First Reconciliation
and First Communion. Her daughter, Kelsey, age 4,
enjoyed her time in childcare. Attending the class on
Sundays was attractive to their family as it fit into their
schedules better than attending a class on a weeknight after a full day at school.
Melodie Harding and her husband, Mike, and son,
Dean, 8, are in the Family Faith Formation class. Their
daughter, Greta, 4, and Silas, 3, are in childcare. She
noted that the childcare offered is most appreciated
and affords her and her husband together, the opportunity to be involved in their oldest child’s faith formation as a family and allows for more family discussion. Because Family Faith Formation takes place on a
Sunday, they feel it is a great start to making Sundays
a special family day.
Nadia Mendoza and her husband, Abraham, attend
Family Faith Formation with their daughter, Athziri
Gonzalez, 10, and son, Kenneth Gonzalez, 13. Nadia
spoke about her being a cancer survivor. Ten years
ago, she was treated for a cancerous tumor. She credits her family’s love and closeness and God’s blessings
for her successful treatment and cure. They chose to
register for Family Faith Formation because they could
take the class as a family. Nadia stressed how much
she loves the class time together as it is completely
devoted to just their family being together and learning
together. They have busy work schedules and the Sunday morning hours work out well for them. They, like
many parents, have a difficult time being able to bring
a student to a 5 PM weekday class.
The Church of Holy Apostles, McHenry, IL
Proof of the success of Family Faith Formation can be
seen in the numbers. “We thought we would have about
20 families sign up. We are now up to 80 families in the
program,” said John Jelinek, Director of Family Faith
Formation. Father Paul posted a video of families working
on their projects on Holy Apostles’ Facebook page last
Sunday, which shows lots of noisy activity, talking and
laughter between family members. He observed, “I never
saw so many fathers present and taking part.”
The parental involvement speaks loudly and clearly to
the children that learning about and practicing their faith is
important and something that the whole family does.
Family Faith Formation seeks to create in a child a foundation of Catholic values and beliefs through both instruction
and seeing his or her parents embrace and practice their
faith. John quipped, “We didn’t budget enough for snacks
for 80 families.” But that’s good problem to have.
McHenry FMSC Mobile Pack Needs You!
Holy Apostles will take part in an extraordinary McHenry
County Mobile Pack event to benefit Feed My Starving

Knights Ask for Support of “Holiday Meals”
Looking Forward to the HALO Sale?
Knights of Columbus Council 1288 of McHenry will again
be raising funds to provide holiday meals to those in need
in our community. This will be the 9th year the Knights
will undertake this rewarding and appreciated project.
Their mission is simple: they raise money
to purchase food and, through a partnership with Meijer, they are able to stretch
the money that is donated a long way.
The food is packed in such a way that
each family receives everything they
need to prepare a proper holiday meal.
One hundred percent of the funds donated is used purchase food that benefits
needy families in our own McHenry area. Any amount you
can give, no matter how small, is greatly appreciated.
The distribution of Thanksgiving meals will be on Saturday, November 21. The Knights welcome everyone to
help sort and pack the meals. Please mail your donations to
Knights of Columbus Council 1288, P. O. Box 148,
McHenry IL 60051. Your support is truly appreciated!!
You won’t have to wait too much longer...the HALO
Holiday Bake Sale is NEXT WEEKEND! Holy Apostles
Ladies Organization will offer their Holiday Bake Sale
on Saturday, November 21, 8 AM to 6:30 PM and
Sunday, November 22, 8:30 AM to 1:30 PM. While the
ladies are getting busy making all
kinds of sweet goodies, they also rely
on your donations of various baked
goods, including breads, cakes, pies,
cookies, cupcakes, muffins, fudge,
and many more. So please consider
making a baked good donation and
dropping them off this coming Friday
or Saturday. Also offered will be a
variety of hand-crafted holiday gift items. All funds
raised from HALO’s sale will be benefit our Anchor’s
Away Debt Reduction Campaign and the purchase of new
projectors in church. Thank you in advance for your
continued support!
Bilingual Thanksgiving Mass
The spirit of gratitude has a long history in our country from the explorers and pilgrims who came to America
500 years ago, to the presidents (Washington, Lincoln)
who designated a special holiday just for the purpose of
giving thanks to God! This Thanksgiving Day, Thursday,
November 26, we invite you to attend a bilingual Mass at
9 AM, when our community will come together for an
hour to give thanks for all the gifts that God has given us,

Oración de Consagración Matrimonial
Todo por el Corazón de Jesús a través del
Corazón de María!
"Oh, Corazón Inmaculado de María, refugio seguro de
nosotros pecadores y ancla firme de salvación, a Ti queremos hoy consagrar nuestro matrimonio. En estos tiempos
de gran batalla espiritual entre los valores familiares auténticos y la mentalidad permisiva del mundo, te pedimos
que Tú, Madre y Maestra, nos muestres el camino verdadero del amor, del compromiso, de la fidelidad, del sacrificio y del servicio. Te pedimos que hoy, al consagrarnos a
Ti, nos recibas en tu Corazón, nos refugies en tu manto
virginal, nos protejas con tus brazos maternales y nos lleves por camino seguro hacia el Corazón de tu Hijo, Jesús.
Tu que eres la Madre de Cristo, te pedimos nos formes y
moldees, para que ambos seamos imágenes vivientes de
Jesús en nuestra familia, en la Iglesia y en el mundo.
Tú que eres Virgen y Madre, derrama sobre nosotros el
espíritu de pureza de corazón, de mente y de cuerpo.
Tú que eres nuestra Madre espiritual, ayúdanos a crecer
en la vida de la gracia y de la santidad, y no permitas que
caigamos en pecado mortal o que desperdiciemos las gracias ganadas por tu Hijo en la Cruz.
Tú que eres Maestra de las almas, enséñanos a ser dóciles como Tú, para acoger con obediencia y agradecimiento toda la Verdad revelada por Cristo en su Palabra y
en la Iglesia.
Tu que eres Mediadora de las gracias, se el canal seguro
por el cual nosotros recibamos las gracias de conversión,
de amor, de paz, de comunicación, de unidad y comprensión.
Tú que eres Intercesora ante tu Hijo, mantén tu mirada
misericordiosa sobre nosotros, y acércate siempre a tu
Hijo, implorando como en Caná, por el milagro del vino
que nos hace falta. Tu que eres Corredentora, enséñanos
a ser fieles, el uno al otro, en los momentos de sufrimiento y de cruz. Que no busquemos cada uno nuestro propio
bienestar, sino el bien del otro. Que nos mantengamos
fieles al compromiso adquirido ante Dios, y que los sacrificios y luchas sepamos vivirlos en unión a tu Hijo Crucificado.
En virtud de la unión del Inmaculado Corazón de María
con el Sagrado Corazón de Jesús, pedimos que nuestro
matrimonio sea fortalecido en la unidad, en el amor, en la
responsabilidad a nuestros deberes, en la entrega generosa del uno al otro y a los hijos que el Señor nos envíe. Que
nuestro hogar sea un santuario doméstico donde oremos
juntos y nos comuniquemos con alegría y entusiasmo. Que
siempre nuestra relación sea, ante todos, un signo visible
del amor y la fidelidad. Te pedimos, Oh Madre, que en virtud de esta consagración, nuestro matrimonio sea protegido de todo mal espiritual, físico o material. Que tu Corazón
Inmaculado reine en nuestro hogar para que así Jesucristo
sea amado y obedecido en nuestra familia. Qué sostenidos por Su amor y Su gracia nos dispongamos a construir,
día a día, la civilización del amor: el Reinado de los Dos
Corazones. Amén.
