Second Sunday in Ordinary Time January 16, 2011 Page Two Second Sunday in Ordinary Time January 16, 2011 From the Pastor For years, Friday night has been “Bingo Night” at St. Isaac Jogues. Through the dedicated work of volunteers, “Bingo Night” has provided entertainment and outreach to both parishioners and our greater community. Through their hard work, Bingo has become a significant source of financial support for our parish. In just the last five years our Bingo volunteers have raised, on average, over $30,000 per year! That is quite an accomplishment. I would call it a real “blessing.” But, unfortunately, there is a problem … a critical problem. Our Parish Business Manager, Bob Kerls, who oversees Bingo and the whole parish financial situation, tells me that there is an imme- diate need for additional volunteers if Bingo is to continue at St. Isaac Jogues Parish. Twenty positions need to be filled! Bob was kind enough to give me a clear “job description” for needed volunteers: Coordinator This person is responsible for the coordination of the Bingo Operation. This includes scheduling of teams, recruiting volunteers, and overseeing of operations. This role can be shared by a couple or two individuals. Team Leaders We have four teams which share work. We are short leaders for three of these teams. The Team Leader oversees the operation of each week's bingo game. They ensure that legal rules and regulations are observed, supervise the setup and selling of bingo cards, monitor the work of floor workers and oversee the clean-up of the parish hall. Floor Workers Each team should have three floor workers. We are short eight of the twelve persons required. Floor workers sell bingo cards, verify winning numbers, payout prizes and assist in closing and clean-up of the Parish Hall. Caller The position of caller is essential for each session. We are currently short two callers. In addition to calling the numbers for each game, the caller assists in the sale of cards before the session, announces the "Rules of Play" and verifies winning numbers. Cashier Each team should have a cashier. At the present time we are short one full time and one back up cashier. The Cashier prepares cash banks for card sellers, records the number of winners and the payout for each game, prepares and signs the summary of the night's results and prepares bank deposits. Kitchen Each week we sell simple comfort food— grilled cheese, tuna salad, sloppy joes, popcorn, and chips. We need at least two workers each week for this operation. At the present time we are short four volunteers. If we are not able to fill these positions we will have to suspend Bingo operations in weeks to come! PLEASE HELP! By investing only 4 to 5 hours a month you can help to insure the survival and continuing success of a most important parish fundraiser. TO VOLUNTEER: Please contact me or our Business Manger, Bob Kerls at 847 967 1860. — Fr.

Page Four Second Sunday in Ordinary Time January 16, 2011 EVANGELIZATION – GOD CONNECTS WITH US THROUGH WORD & SACRAMENT “Across human history God has reached out to connect with us whom he has created in his very own likeness and image. This outreach culminated in sending his son, Jesus Christ, the word made flesh. “God’s communication directed to us seeks to draw us into connection and communion with God’s very own life. God has entrusted his word to the Church. This word finds privileged expression in the Sacred Scriptures, the Bible. The word of God, however, is not bound to a book. The Church holds, treasures, and proclaims God’s word. And in the sacraments, the Church celebrates Jesus, the word made flesh, and the mysteries of his life, death, and resurrection – of which are made real and present to us through the sacraments. “When we gather together as God’s church on Sunday to celebrate the Eucharist, we hear the word of God proclaimed and preached. God truly speaks to us and connects with us. Even more, as we celebrate the Eucharist, the death and the resurrection of the Lord becomes available to us in sacramental signs. We are able to join, to connect with the Lord whose death destroyed our death and whose resurrection restored our life. “God continues to reach out to embrace humanity and to connect with us and to establish a communion of life with us. In the word we hear in the Church and in the sacraments we celebrate, God touches us. “In the gospel today we hear the words of John the Baptist describe the experience of baptizing Jesus. He proclaims to all who will listen that Jesus is the Son of God. If you have felt God’s presence in your life, tell someone of your experience and proclaim the Good News to anyone who will listen.” — Fr.

Principal: Mrs. Margaret Whitman ADDING NAMES TO THE PARISH SICK LIST It has always been the policy of St. Isaac Jogues to offer our parish community an opportunity to pray for those parish- ioners who are ill and in need of our prayers. We have tried to keep close track of these names for our Bulletin as they are made available to us. However, now we face an important privacy issue, very much like the issues faced by hospitals, health institutions, and certainly by other parishes. We cannot (by law) publicly let our parish community know the health status of any of our members without their permission. We appreciate the fact that often friends, neighbors, and acquaintances wish to do something special for a person who is ill, and ask to place their name on the list to be prayed for. While their intentions are surely good, we simply can no longer accept names in this manner. We will institute a new process regarding calling in names for the Bulletin list. Names for the sick list placed in the Bulletin have to be called in by the person who is ill, or by a member of their family. At the time they call in the name, they will be asked whether they are the sick person him/ herself, or a member of their family, and if they give permission for the name to be placed on the list. They will be asked for the cor- rect spelling of the sick person's name. If a family member, they will be required to give their name for our records. Thank you for your patience regarding this new process. We wish to do all we can to offer our parish community the opportunity to offer prayers for those who are ill — but we must also be cognizant of the fact that all members of our con- gregation are entitled to their privacy in this regard.
