(All Masses but 10am) Missouri Right to Life is sponsoring a bus to Washington DC for the pro-life March leaving at 10am January 20 from sacred Heart Chapel and returning to the chapel on January 23. This is an incredible opportunity for your family to attend together. Most of the participants at the march are under 25 years old, and so it is one of the greatest places in our nation to see our young church in action, prayer and public service. Please consider going. Notice the posters we have around to give you more information. Call Carol Turner for more information. Payment to Missouri Right to Life is due December 15.
Confessions are offered after 8, 9 and 11:30 Masses today.
SCRIP is sold after Masses.
Coffee and Doughnuts are available after 8 and 10am Mass today.
A subcommittee of the Parish Stewardship Council has been meeting to discuss the small groups we will embark upon during the season of Lent and Advent, 2022. Someone from this subcommittee may be calling on some of you to consider being small group leaders. For these small groups, the leader simply has to take care of knowing the time and location of the meetings and assure everyone else in the small group knows. The participant book is the same as the leader’s book, so there is no need for the leader to be an expert in the material on stewardship or have more knowledge because it is expected everyone in the group, including the leader learns together. This is an extremely important step in our forward movement of a stewardship parish, so if asked, please take the invitation seriously and if possible say yes.
Thank you for surpassing our November offertory goal! Thanks everyone who helped make the deer hunter’s breakfast a success and Ladies Sodality for the $1500 toward the school maintenance project. Thank you for helping us be at almost 50% of our CSA Goal. Please make your pledge soon if you have not yet. See in the bulletin for our Advent trees that are in all the chapels. See you at the Our Lady of Guadalupe Novena this week!

Did you know that after every Council, Commission or Committee Meeting the minutes of the meeting are placed on our parish website? The announcements we read at Mass are also found on our website along with previous and current bulletins. Please spend some time looking at the incredible amount of information that is on our parish website. Do you want to keep track of what is happening at our school? The school calendar is on the school website along with two newsletters a week, called “The Beat.”
Since we had many events happening in our parish this past week, we were not able to celebrate and call to mind the importance of National Vocation Awareness Week. We try to keep the important work of calling forth more men and women to priesthood and religious life and to support holy authentic Marriages all year round. So please continue to pray that our young people respond to God’s call and follow His plan with all their hearts. Don’t forget to ask a young man to consider priesthood and a young woman to consider consecrated life. If you are asked, take the question to prayer. And, all young people, please pray asking the Lord to reveal his plan for you.
Thank you for coming to our All Souls and All Saints Day Masses; for participating in our Memorial Service for those who died this past year; for coming to the cemetery and/or for attending our 3 night mission. May the fruits of these good prayer experiences continue to help our parish flourish!
