From Our Bishops [On Monday Bishop Francis DiLorenzo of the Diocese of Richmond and Bishop Paul Loverde of the Diocese of Arlington issued the following through the V irginia Catholic Conference.] Weekly Parish Bulletin With deep disappointment, we learned today that the U.S. Supreme Court has denied review of lower-court decisions that struck down Virginia's law prohibiting same-sex marriage and similar laws in four other states. Because of the Supreme Court's denial, marriages between couples of the same sex have begun today in Virginia. This occurrence reflects a fundamental misunderstanding of the intrinsic nature of marriage and represents an injustice to over a million Virginia voters, whose decision was to enshrine the understanding of marriage as the union of one man and one woman into our state's constitution. Marriage has been affirmed by countless generations because it uniquely benefits the common good by recognizing the union of two equal but complementary individuals - that is, a man and a woman - who, by their life-giving union, may create a family. Marriage not only benefits the man and woman who enter it, but also best serves children because of the particular contributions that mothers and fathers bring to family life. Therefore, Virginia's constitution rightly recognized the unique contributions marriage makes to children and to the common good. As Bishops, we will continue to affirm the truth about marriage, the lifelong union of one man and one woman, as well as its essential importance to the common good. As pastors, teachers, and faith leaders, we can do nothing less. It is our fervent hope that the Supreme Court will reconsider this fundamental issue in the future. Religious Education Our Religious Education program is now in its second month of exciting exploration of God's truth and beauty. Parents are asked to ensure that all children and youth ages 4 to 18 are enrolled and actively participating. Registration is still available for our classes which meet Sunday mornings, 10:45-11:45am. Please contact Anne Glancy through the parish office or stop by St. Jude Hall next Sunday. All Souls Day Altar As November approaches, we look forward to again erecting our "Altar of the Dead" near the image of Our Lady of Guadalupe. Please bring photos of deceased loved ones to place on the altar until the beginning of Advent. Additionally, please write any names of deceased individuals who you would like remembered at Mass this month, in our parish Book of the Dead. Youth Group Service Project Our Youth Group is excited about participating in the Diocesan Day of Service on November 8 by playing bingo with our neighbors at Carrington Place. They also hope to build a raised garden box for the residents there. They need some help from parishioners with carpentry experience to build it. To find out more, please contact Mary Lynn Krusz at 4436973. Bible Study The group will meet for lunch at Hobbs Hole, on Wednesday, October 15, after Lauds. Come join us!
