BECOMING CATHOLIC
It’s the time of year when we all look at our to-do lists and
feel motivated to act. It’s the time of year when we finally
get around to making certain decisions. Becoming
Catholic, whether from another Christian tradition, or from
no faith tradition, is a process of conversion over time.
Each person’s journey is unique. If you, or someone you
know, has ever considered becoming Catholic, please
contact Fr Tim or Andrew Beach (for a young person). We
have different processes for babies, youth and adults all
beginning in the fall. If you would like to accompany any of
these groups, please speak to Fr Tim. We are always
looking for members of the parish to learn and grow with
those who are exploring the faith. Help St Pius X Parish to
be An Initiating Community.
THANKSGIVING PRAYER
This Thanksgiving let those of us who have much and
those who have little gather at the welcoming table of
the Lord. At this blessed feast, may rich and poor alike
remember that we are called to serve one another and
to walk in God’s gracious world. With thankful hearts we
praise our God who, like a loving parent, denies us no
good things.
Today and every day, it pleases God for us to sit as
brothers and sisters as we share the bounty of the earth
and the grace God has placed in each soul. For this we
all give thanks and praise to our loving and gracious
God.
WORLD MISSION SUNDAY
Next Sunday, every parish across the world will
celebrate World Mission Sunday. It is a global sign of
the Universal Church and Mission. Your prayers and
donations will help support churches, hospitals, schools
and vocations in countries where the Church is
beginning, where it is new. Please be as generous as
possible to the collection for the Propagation of the
Faith, more than 1,120 dioceses in Asia, Africa, Latin
America, the Pacific Islands and some of our Canadian
dioceses depend on the World Mission collection.
DEVELOPMENT AND PEACE
Development and Peace invites you to participate in
our annual workshop preparing for the 2014 Education
Campaign "Sow Much Love - Small Family Farmers
Feed the World". Each workshop is from 7:00 p.m. to

BRANTFORD CATHOLIC TEACHERS GUILD
There will be a meeting of the Brantford Catholic
Teachers Guild at St Pius X Church on Tuesday,
th
October 14 from 5:30 pm to 7:00 pm.
ELECTION 2015-2017 FOR C.W.L.
th
Elections will be held at the November 6
meeting.
We are looking for nominations for the
following positions:
 President;
 Vice President;
 President Elect;
 Communications;
 Resolution & Legislation;
 Recording Secretary.
Please discern your call to service and carefully
consider the gifts and talents with which you have been
blessed. These gifts are part of God’s plan for us in his
service to us and to others.
So far there are no nominations for these C. W. L.
executive positions. Catholic Women’s League plays a
vital part in the life of our parish and continues to be a
driving force behind many Christian works both in and
outside of the parish. Involvement for many has meant
new friends and a great feeling of accomplishment.
