NO MASS: Father Ouseph will be attending the Priests Annual Assembly this week. There will be no Mass on Wednesday, October 8th.

VISITING MISSIONARY: On the weekend of October 10th & 11th, Fr. Dennis M. Kriz, O.S.M., of the Order of Friar Servants of Mary (Servites) USA Province, will be here to talk about their missionary work in KwaZulu-Natal, Republic of South Africa.  The Servites are one of the mendicant orders and were founded in 1233 in Florence, Italy.  At the present time they serve all over the world in every type of apostolate.  The USA Province of Servites is responsible for the missions in KwaZulu-Natal.  The main task of the missionaries today continues to be the proclamation of the Gospel and the establishment of viable Catholic communities.  The idea that the people are the church is quite strong and participation in the liturgy and the work of the Church is very good.  Other ministries include education and primary health care centers, providing funding to improve the water system and root out malaria.  They are also ministering to the victims of the “AIDS” epidemic and the building of homes for these victims and other people of the area.  They are in need of prayers and material help to carry on their work in this area.  God Bless you for your prayers and financial assistance. Contribution envelopes will be provided.

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 next Sunday, October 12th  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.

THANK YOU: Thank you to the KJZT juniors for donating 5 red altar server cassocks to the church.  The juniors made the donation using People Helping People Parish Fund Raiser matching funds from the state office.
