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.

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?” Fundraiser for Irish Booster Club sponsored by Holm Automotive is this Friday, Oct. 17th at the Chapman home football game. For each person who test drives a new car on the West side of the church $10 will be donated to the Booster Club. A flyer is posted on the bulletin board.
