Stewardship Moment: “Therefore, every tree that does not bear good fruit will be cut down & thrown into the fire.”-Matthew 3:10 Do you bear good fruit for Jesus? Do you spend time in prayer or do you waste it with mindless activity? Do you use your talent to help others or are you too busy? Do you use your treasure to support the Church or do you buy more things that go unused. Our time, talent and treasure are gifts from God. What we do with these gifts is our gift back to Him. What gifts are you planning to give to the Lord during this upcoming Christmas season? 

The Sykeston Christmas Open House will be held TODAY at the Fire Hall from 2:00-3:30. Christmas goodies, children’s games and a visit from Santa Claus will be part of the celebration. Everyone is welcome. Sponsored by the Sykeston Community Club.

Stewardship Moment: “Therefore, stay awake! For you do not know on which day your Lord will come.” - Matthew 24:42 People who have had health issues or near-death experiences generally have a greater appreciation for each day being a gift from God. The rest of us usually take for granted that we will be around tomorrow. However, when you start to look at each day as a gift, you realize all the little miracles that happen daily and you begin to see God’s active presence in your life. You grow in gratitude, each day, for all that we have been given. 

The Sykeston Christmas Open House will be held at the Fire Hall on December 4th from 2:00-3:30. Christmas goodies, children’s games and a visit from Santa Claus will be part of the celebration. Everyone is welcome. Sponsored by Sykeston Community Club. 

On Saturday, Dec. 3rd from 1-3p.m., Federated Church will host a community event, "Festival of Trees & Wreaths" to benefit the Carrington Area Ministerial Association. Beautifully decorated trees and wreaths will be available to view and purchase tickets for a chance to win one! Refreshments will be served. 

There is a basket in the back of the church for donations for Christmas flowers. 

Communal Penance Service will be celebrated next Sunday, December 4th at 7:00 p.m. at Sacred Heart. We will have 5 priests available. Let us pray for each other that God will help us make a good examination of conscience so that we may all be relieved of the burden of our sins! 

Advent starts this weekend. Please pick an Advent daily reflection book up and take advantage of this excellent resource to help make your Advent spiritually fulfilling.

Happy November Birthday to Derek Beckley, Troy Hafner, Mary K. Larson, Larry Larson Jr., Luke Kutz, Joey Irmen, Brent Kurtz, and Carrie Nichols. Happy November Anniversary to Jim & Sharon Zwinger.
 

Holy Father’s Prayer Intention for November: We pray for children who are suffering, especially those who are homeless, orphans, and victims of war; may they be guaranteed access to education and the opportunity to experience family affection.

Stewardship Moment: “….giving thanks to the Father, who has made you fit to share in the inheritance of the holy ones in light. - Colossians 1:12 God wants us to be happy! Instead of looking at the Ten Commandments as being restrictive and telling us what we can’t do, look at them as guides for living a joy-filled and peaceful life. Most of our problems arise when we put our own needs first or we spend most of our time trying to acquire more stuff. Instead, try putting God first in all things. We were made for God. Open your heart & let Him in! 

St Joseph/St. Elizabeth CUF Council will be having their annual November Food Drive for the Wells Co. Pantry. Please bring your donated items to Sunday Mass throughout November and leave at the back of the church. 

As we celebrate our National Holiday of Giving Thanks – let us pause and reflect on the many blessings Almighty God has given us. Mass is at 9:00 am on Thanksgiving at Sacred Heart. 

The Sykeston Christmas Open House will be held at the Fire Hall on December 4 from 2:00-3:30. Christmas goodies, children’s games and a visit from Santa Claus will be part of the celebration. Everyone is welcome. Sponsored by the Sykeston Community Club. 

As part of our Fargo Diocesan Synod we are doing a parish self-reflection survey. You can take the self-reflection online at fargodiocese.org/synod or use the QR Code here. Paper forms of the questionnaire are also available in the pews and in the bulletins. We ask that you complete the self-reflection online or turn the paper form into the parish office before November 27, 2022.

 Happy November Birthday to Derek Beckley, Troy Hafner, Mary K. Larson, Larry Larson Jr., Luke Kutz, Joey Irmen, Brent Kurtz, and Carrie Nichols. Happy November Anniversary to Jim & Sharon Zwinger.
