 Pastor's Weekly Message

For the Weekend of September 19, 2021

Dear People of God,

In today’s gospel Jesus speaks of his own rejection, torture and shameful death. True discipleship, he says, is concerned not with status but with service to the poor, with justice and with peace.

I once read a statistic that, to tell you the truth, is even more frightening to me than Covid could ever possibly be to a person of faith. There are an estimated 100 million children between the ages of 5 and 18 living on the street in the world. In the United States there are 1.3 million homeless and runaway street kids, not counting children who were forced out of their homes, abandoned by the foster care system, or are part of a homeless family. As a Salesian, this not only breaks my heart, but makes it all the more imperative that we do all in our power to make sure that the young people in our lives don’t become part of this statistic. Pray for our families. Pray for the young people of our families, our country, and the world!

Our Parish Ministry Fair, open after all the 11:00 am Mass this week, gives us a chance to examine how we can assist and bring more life into the fabric of our parish daily life. If you are not already involved and actively engaged in one of the ministries offered, please use this occasion to take the leap and do so.

Some of the available Ministries are: Knights of Columbus: Mama Margaret Guild: Youth Ministry: Young Adult Ministry: Religious Education: RCIA: Adult Rel. Education: Altar Servers: Lectors/Commentators: Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion: Choir: Cantors: Wednesday Adorers: Outreach to the Poor: Prayer Shaw/Baby Blanket Ministry: Phone Committee: Christmas Committee: Events Committee: Korean Ministry: Salesian Cooperators: Respect Life Committee: Parish Office Assistance

If there is a ministry not mentioned but that you might want to see here, please let me know about it and maybe we can with your assistance add it to our program.

Next week we will host and sponsor our parish Ministry Fair after the 11:00am Mass. Please do your best to support this effort. Your involvement in our various ministry opportunities is a reflection of the faith life of our parish. Let’s show how healthy we really are.

As usual please remember to pray for all of the Salesians in our presence here at MHC . . . especially those at St. Philip Residence. Be assured we will be doing the same for you.

Peace Always!

Fr. Steve Dumais, SDB.
Pastor
