SYMPATHY: Please remember in your prayers the soul and family of Mr. Bruce Malaer who went to his eternal rest, Thursday, October 9th. Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him.  May his soul and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.  Amen

VISITING MISSIONARY: This weekend, we welcome Fr. Dennis M. Kriz, O.S.M., of the Order of Friar Servants of Mary. Fr. Kriz will talk about the missionary work in South Africa.  They are in need of our prayers and financial assistance. Contribution envelopes are available in the pews. Please be as generous as you can.

OFFICE CLOSED: The secretary will be unavailable from October 16 – 20th.  Please contact Fr. Ouseph.

SECOND COLLECTION: Next weekend our parish will celebrate World Mission Sunday.  This year we are invited to reach out and help build the Church in Mongolia, the world’s youngest Catholic Church, as well as local churches throughout the Missions, in the most remote areas across our world.  Through the work of these churches, and their witness to Christ, the poor receive practical help and experience God’s love and mercy, His hope and peace.  Please keep the Missions in your daily prayers.  Please come prepared next weekend to give generously in the collection for the Society of the Propagation of the Faith.

KJZT JUNIORS: The next meeting of the KJZT juniors will be Sunday, October 12 in the hall.  Juniors will sit together at the 8 am mass and have their meeting immediately following mass.  After the meeting, we will place flags and crosses at the cemetery.  Please wear your royal blue T shirts and jeans or khakis.

PANCAKE BREAKFAST: The KC’s will have a Pancake Breakfast after Mass in the Parish Hall.   Free will donations will be accepted for this fundraiser.  All are invited to enjoy breakfast and support the KC’s in all their charitable works.

CHOIR PRACTICE: There will be Choir practice after Mass on Monday, October 13th.

GRIEF SUPPORT: A grief support group meeting will be held 7:00 p.m. Thursday evening, October 16th at St. Joseph’s Hall next to St. Mary’s Catholic Church.  This is a support group for those in the community who want to gain a better understanding of all the changes experienced in the grief process.
