Both offices will be closed on Monday, October 14th in recognition of Columbus Day. We will re-open on Tuesday, October 15th at regular times.
There is No Eucharistic Adoration when the offices are closed.
Next weekend October 20th we welcome Gretchen Erlichmans a candidate for religious life to speak on some of the barriers that prevent vocations.
The second collection will go to Laboure. Founded in 2003, The Laboure Society rescues Catholic vocations from the barrier of student loan debt. The vast majority of seminaries and religious communities will not accept into formation men and women who have outstanding student loan debt. The communities cannot absorb that debt and they cannot pay off that debt with their own funding.
Through a Catholic based fund raising model Laboure teaches future priests, sisters and brothers how to fundraise for vocations as a collective class of "aspirants" to priesthood or religious life. Using the Laboure model aspirants erase significant student loan debt in months rather than years. Since 2003, Laboure has delivered close to 300 aspirants into formation, and 80% of those aspirants have gone on to final ordination or profession of final vows. No other Catholic lay organization in the country is having the kind of impact Laboure is having on delivering vocations to the Catholic church.
The Charismatic Mass will be held every 2nd Monday of the month at Our Lady of the Rosary at 6:30pm.
All are welcome!
What is OLR'S Program About?
The purpose of Our Lady of the Rosary's Faith Formation Program is to teach children about God's Word, the Catholic Church, and their responsibilities as Catholic Christians. In class, the children will hear about the importance of prayer in their lives and will learn that one of the privileges of "being Catholic" is worshipping within the community at Mass. Attending Mass regularly is an important factor in teaching children to worship the Lord in preparation for their journey in life.
Among the Sacraments of initiation into our faith is CONFIRMATION.
This year's ceremony was held on October 2nd with Bishop Douglas Lucia officiating.
Many thanks to the TEACHERS, PARENTS, and VOLUNTEERS who helped make this formal presentation of the indwelling of the HOLY SPIRIT on our CANDIDATES a blessed and joyful occasion. Let us continue to remember all our youth in prayer as they grow in the Christian faith and approach adulthood.

The Bible actually tells one complete story. We don't typically think of the "big picture," when we hear parts of the chapters or just verses. It is, therefore, important to extend our reading to entire chapters so we "get" the big picture.
Today's puzzle is about the Season of Fall.
God has arranged seasons here on the earth and in our lives to help us recognize changes that take place. He teaches us how to adjust to these changes. He tells us about the four seasons in many places in the Bible. For example, in the first book of the Old Testament, Genesis 8:22, the scripture reads: "As long as the earth endures, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night will never cease". Once again in Genesis 1 verse 14, it says: And God said, "Let there be lights in the expanse of the sky to distinguish between the day and the night, and to mark the seasons and days and years." As you work the puzzle, think about how great God is. He have created all things for us to show how much He LOVES us. Tell HIM - THANK YOU!

If you are curious and have come to see,
If you are weary and have come to rest,
If you are grateful and have come to share,
If you are hurting and have come for solace,
If you are listening and have come to pray,
If you are seeking and have come for answers,
The Mission of The Good News Foundation is to share the love and knowledge of Jesus Christ through hospitality, spiritual growth and renewal, and support of individuals, parish communities and family life.
One of the programs is Women at the Well which is a place, a group, where you can share your thoughts, your experiences, your ponderings and wonderings about God, Jesus, the Holy Spirit, prayer, Scripture, your own spiritual growth or desire for it. The title comes from the Gospel story where Jesus meets a Samaritan woman that gives truth, acceptance, and direction. Jesus invites her to look at her life, make more wholesome choices and turn her heart over to God.
In sharing or listening to others, it may help us to look at our own lives and discover how each of us might draw closer to God. It might also remind us of God's goodness and faithfulness to us. There is no need to be fearful you must 'SPEAK.'
