A Word from your Pastor
Today we end the Church’s year with the Feast of Christ
the King. After following the way of the Lord for another
year, this time with the Gospel of Matthew, we end
proclaiming Jesus Christ as our Lord. It is the same
profession of faith of the apostles who ended up giving it
all for Him. How do you communicate that Christ is your
King? How do people see it in your humility profession?               EUCHARISTIC DAYS                      November 19/20, 21 & 22

MARRIAGE MOMENTS - Whether or not you travel over
Thanksgiving, remember those who can’t afford a plane ticket, gas,
or even a pair of shoes, or worse—don’t have a loved one whit
whom to share the day. Our bounty is not deserved, but a gift.
Give some of it away.

PARENTING POINTERS - With Thanksgiving approaching,
consider how the president pardons a turkey. Is there a relative you
need to pardon or make peace with? Perhaps the turkey is you.
Forgive yourself.
