The parish's Home Mass Program is a feature of our
special Jubilee Year celebrations — and we see it, in part, as
in lieu of a Parish Visitation.
The concept is that when a parish family volunteers to host
a Home Mass, the parish will invite nearby parishioners who would
have been visited by one of our clergy on one day of the Parish
Visitation. If they have the room, the host family is free
to invite others. The visiting priest and those present then
have an opportunity to interact informally about the life of the parish.
More detail was given in a letter sent to all parish families. A
Sign-Up Genius program enables families willing to host a Home Mass
to sign-up for one of the available dates.
Meal Packaging Event!
Sunday, November 19th, 12:30 to 3:00 P.M.
Helping Hands is a unique hands-on volunteer event founded on
Matthew 25:35 and the Catholic call to social justice. Developed
by CRS and Stop Hunger Now, Helping Hands
is a meal-packaging
program that is fun for adults and children. Volunteers come
together to package nutritious meals for people in developing
countries who are suffering from food shortages and famine.
The meals we package will be distributed
to vulerable children,
women and men in Burkina Faso, West Africa.

Alpha Sessions Meet on Thursdays
Alpha is a series of sessions designed to develop in the
participants a deeper relationship with Jesus and openness
to the presence of the Holy Spirit in our lives. Approximately
60 individuals are participating in Alpha sessions each Thursday.
Each session begins with a meal which is followed by a video talk
by Nicky Gumbel, and then small group discussions.
The talks are designed to encourage conversation in a friendly,
open and informal environment. The first three talks are made
available here for those who missed them.
Participants in the Alpha Program are asked to sign up for the "Day Away,"
Saturday, November 11th, from 9:00 A.M.
to 4:30 P.M., at the Cranaleith Spiritual Center in
Prayer works! We ask that the entire parish pray both
for the Alpha team and for the participants. The Alpha
program is reliant on the Holy Spirit, and not on the
expertise of the team or the participants. So please
pray that the Holy Spirit blesses the endeavors of the
parish in presenting the Alpha program.
