Stewardship Moment: “And Jesus said to him, ‘Go your way; your faith has made you well.’ And immediately he received his sight and followed him on the way.” (Mark 10:52) Faith is believing in something even though you may not be able to physically see it. Many people think that miracles don’t happen anymore. This is hard, but try to focus on the positive and not the negative things in your life. When you focus on your blessings instead of your hardships, miracles will seem common. You will see God’s active presence in your daily life. You will begin to develop an attitude of gratitude.


Evangelization Corner: “Christ be with me, Christ within me, Christ behind me, Christ before me, Christ beside me, Christ to win me, Christ to comfort me and restore me, Christ beneath me, Christ above me, Christ in quiet, Christ in danger, Christ in hearts of all that love me, Christ in mouth of friend and stranger.” St. Patrick


Today is World Mission Sunday. We celebrate this day by remembering our baptismal call – to bring the Gospel to all! The collection today for the Society for the Propagation of the Faith supports the work and witness of the Mission Church, as it provides for priests, religious and lay leaders who offer the Lord’s mercy and concrete help to the most vulnerable communities in the Pope’s missions. Thank you for your generosity. As with all national/special collections, please make check payable to St. Elizabeth’s.


We thank Father Pfau for celebrating our mass while Father Dodge is on vacation.


“We must not be surprised when we hear of murders, killings, of wars, or of hatred...If a mother can kill her own child, what is left but for us to kill each other?” Mother Teresa

 Happy October Birthday to Jim Seil, Diane Hafner, Dennis Hafner, Shelly Kurtz, Jayme Burgard, Karen Neumiller, Jameson Kutz, Maara Kutz, and Sean Nichols. Happy October Anniversary to Melinda & Bill Almond

Holy Father’s Prayer Intention for October: We pray that every baptized person may be engaged in evangelization, available to the mission, by being witnesses of a life that has the flavor of the Gospel.

Stewardship Moment: “For the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve and to give his life as a ransom for many.” (Mark 10:45) If you held a mirror up to your life, would it reflect God’s love and mercy? If you are struggling with this, try changing your attitude from “I want more” to “thank you God for everything you have given me, I have enough to share”. This change in perspective will bring you joy through service to others. Pray daily to become less self-centered and to become more God-centered.


Evangelization Corner: “You must ask God to give you power to fight against the sin of pride which is your greatest enemy – the root of all that is evil, and the failure of all that is good. For God resists the proud.” St. Vincent de Paul


Vacation: I will be on vacation over the next month in New Jersey. Fr. Bernard Pfau will be covering the weekend Masses and Golden Acres Masses on Friday. I thank Fr. Pfau for helping out. Please pray that I have a safe journey and I will be remembering you in all of my Masses. Thank you! Fr. Dodge


Next Weekend we will celebrate World Mission Sunday. Pope Francis invites the entire Church to support mission dioceses in Africa, Asia, the Pacific Islands, and parts of Latin America and Europe, where priests, religious and lay leaders serve the world’s most vulnerable communities. Please keep the Pope’s missions in your prayers and be generous in next week’s collection for the Society for the Propagation of the Faith. Envelopes are in your box set. As with all national/special collections, please make check payable to St. Elizabeth’s.


The right to life is the first human right. Abortion is killing someone that cannot defend himself. Pope Francis


Weekly Prayer of the Faithful Petitions:
That we may change our attitude of wanting more to being grateful and sharing more generously.

Stewardship Moment: “It is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than for one who is rich to enter the kingdom of God.” (Mark 10:25) Jesus uses tough language that we may not want to hear. However, we are all called to be generous with all of our gifts. Not just the ones we pick and choose, but all our gifts, and especially the one that means the most to us! That includes our time in prayer to God, our talent in participating in parish ministries, and our treasure supporting our local parish and other charities.

“Unfortunately, what is thrown away is not only food and dispensable objects, but often human beings themselves, who are discarded as ‘unnecessary.” Pope Francis
