World Mission Sunday
October 19, 2014
The theme for World Mission Sunday is “I Will Build My Church”
(Matthew 16:18). This year we are invited to reach out and help
build the Church in Mongolia, the world’s youngest Catholic
Church, as well as local churches throughout the Missions, in
the most remote areas across our world. Through the work of
these churches, and their witness to Christ, the poor receive
practical help and experience God’s love and mercy, His hope
and peace. Please come prepared next weekend to give
generously to this collection. Visit www.IAmAMissionary.org for
more information.

An envelope is included in the boxed collection envelopes.
Extra envelopes are on the blue tables in the entryway.
Checks are made payable to St. Michael’s.
The loose plate collection next Sunday will go to this cause.
Second Bazaar a Success!
Once again the parish bazaar reached its goals of
building community with our parish family as well as
the Chapman community and outlying areas and
helping with the financial needs of the parish. The
parish netted approximately $6,400. A final report of
income and expenses will be given later.
The success was due to YOU!
 The hard work of the Bazaar Committee—Jake
Kelly (chairperson), Mary Anderson, Wilma
Calovich, Sara Cook, Millie Fink and Eli Sallman.
 The hard work of those who helped with setting
up, cleaning up, working the games/booths,
serving the meal, helping in the kitchen, running
the auction, Country Store, etc.
 Donations from local and area businesses and
parishioners of goods and/or time. The meal this
year was all donated except for the pork and the
supplies. That made a big difference in the total
amount netted.
 Support of parishioners and others by purchasing
tickets for the meal, the games and booths, buying
items from the Country Store and bidding on the
silent and live auction items.
Special Thanks to:
 The Bazaar Committee and the parishioners (of all
ages) who helped in any way.
 The parishioners who have made comments or
suggestions to help us improve next year’s bazaar.
(It’s not too late to e-mail or give Marita input.)

A Family Perspective (by Bud Ozar): Today’s
gospel speaks about “unworthy wedding
guests.” What makes a “worthy” guest? Presence
and presents are not enough. The greatest gift we
can give is support to the couple as they voyage
through life together because marriage naturally
contains within it the fields of disappointment.
Think of the weddings you have attended. Have
you been a “worthy guest?”
