Campaign for Human Development Collection: This weekend there will be a special collection for the Campaign for Human Development. The money from this collection supports programs in the United States to provide training and support for people living in poverty. Envelopes are in the pews. Please put them in with the regular collection.
Youth Group: The Youth Group will be having a bake sale this weekend after all Masses.
Thanksgiving Day Mass: There will be no Thanksgiving Day Mass celebrated at Ogden Regional Medical Center this year. There will be a prayer service at the Hospital conducted by Fr. Tim Yanni, the Episcopal Chaplain. Father Cummins will be celebrating the Thanksgiving Day Mass at the Newman Center this year and not at the hospital. Thanksgiving Day Mass will be celebrated at Holy Family Parish at 8:30 a.m.
Senior Mass/Anointing & Luncheon: This weekend we will begin sign-ups for those who would like to attend the Appreciation Luncheon for the senior members of the Parish (anyone 65 years or older). Please see Fr. Bill after Mass if you would like to sign up to attend. (No reservations will be taken over the phone and the deadline for sign-up will be Sunday, Dec. 3rd.) The Mass, celebration of the Sacrament of the Sick, and luncheon will be held on Tuesday, Dec. 12th in the Parish Hall. The Mass will begin at 11 a.m. followed by a luncheon (no charge) and entertainment t by the children from St. Joseph Elementary school. (Please Note: This luncheon is only for parishioners. It is free of charge. Please so not invite a neighbor, friend or non-parishioner since this will make the cost prohibitive and we will not be able to sponsor another luncheon.)
Knights of Columbus breakfast next week!
Confirmation Date: The date for Confirmation has been set by the Bishop’s Office. It will be Wednesday evening, April 18th, at 7:00 p.m. Those in Confirmation, please mark that date on your calendars.
Sacrament of Anointing of the Sick: A question has arisen about the celebration of the Sacrament of the Sick with the senior members of the Parish. The Church not only permits but encourages us to celebrate the Sacrament communally with the seniors of a parish community who, as defined in the rite, “have grown weaker under the burden of their years.” A person does not have to be seriously ill of physically infirmed to receive the Sacrament. Even someone suffering form depression, mental illness or addiction can request the Sacrament. Seniors attending the Mass on Dec. 12th do not have to be anointed if they do not want to celebrate the Sacrament but it will be celebrated communally for those who would like to receive those special graces.
Re-Keying of the Parish Facilities: All the buildings in the Parish (the Church, Education Building, and Social Hall) have now been re-keyed so your old keys will no longer work. Distribution of the key will be made through Rhonda in the Parish Office with approval from Fr. Bill. Motion sensor cameras will soon be installed in all the buildings and the key pad to the Education Building will be deactivated on Tuesday Nov. 20th the only access will be with a key. (For the time being, the access code to the Eucharistic Chapel will remain the same.)
SHARE/CCS Food Drive: Runs the entire month of November. Canned foods and nonperishable items, especially canned fruit, tuna, peanut butter and soups are needed. Place on the Sanctuary steps. If you need help an usher will assist you. This is your personal Thanksgiving pledge to the local community.
HFCCW Quilt Raffle: The Holy Family CCW will be selling tickets for a chance to win a hand made quilt on behalf of the Northern Deanery Council of Catholic Women fundraiser. Tickets are $1.00 or 6 for $5.00. They will be on sale for this weekend in the Gathering Space and then it will move on to another parish, so hurry and get your tickets today! The drawing will be held in January.
Knights of Columbus: K of C Council 14399 thanks Holy Family parishioners for all of their continued support of our fundraiser's (breakfast, BINGO, food drives, and the blood drive) without your support we could not continue to help those in need or charitable organizations in our local community.
Stewardship, What does the Bible say about Giving? The Essence of Church ministry is service, within and outside the Catholic Community. When the Church is faithful to its call, the Bible tells us that God’s presence and blessing will be manifest.
Adoration: “She (Mary) is to have a son and you are to name him Jesus because he will save his people from their sins.” (Mt 1:21) Our Christian era was inaugurated with great hope and expectancy. The angel’s message to us through Joseph is most reassuring “he will save his people from their sins.” We are “his people” when we come to him admitting our sinfulness and our need for his forgiving, healing love. Be merciful to me a sinner, O Lord!
