Special Intention for November 2015
"During this month of November, we pray, dear God our Father, for the gift of dialogue. May we be open to personal encounters and dialogue with everyone, even with those whose convictions differ from our own. Give us the grace to do so in love.
"Lord, we also lift up the pastors of our Church. Grant them a profound love for their people so that they may accompany and walk with them and enlivern their hope."

We are a stewardship parish!
Stewardship is based on the spiritual principles of the Old Testament and the teachings of Jesus. As Catholics, realizing all that we have is a gift from God, we are encouraged to reflect on our blessings, enhance them and share them with others. By giving of ourselves and helping those around us, we are practicing Christian stewardship.
In 1992, the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops brought attention to this principle when they published Stewardship: A Disciple’s Response (U.S. Bishops' Pastoral Letter). Looking beyond financial contributions alone, this document encourages Catholics to live as disciples of Jesus and to share their gifts of time, talent and treasure – more out of gratitude than obligation.

"Come, Holy Spirit, and visit your people in our great need. May Joseph Dutton, who lived in penitential solidarity with those yearning for a complete change of mind and heart in every time and place, intercede for us in our struggle, particularly for _________________. May his total submission to your purifying will in all things encourage us on our own way of conversion. May whatever virtue in him your Church deems heroic clear the way to sainthood for him, for the inspiration and consolation of many. Amen."
