Weekend of October 18 & 19, 2014
From the Pastor’s Desk...
Engaging All of Us . . . This
past Sunday, we had a great
experience with our Stewardship Ministry Fair. In addition
to offering a variety of fun activities, presenting some very
talented handiwork by our
young people, we also had the
opportunity to see, up close
and personal, the wide variety
of on-going ministries here at
Saint Charles Borromeo Parish. A very big thank
you to Karen Stazak, Joan Binsley, all of the members of our Stewardship Commission, as well as representatives of our various ministries and organizations who gave up their Sunday afternoon to present
the good news of precisely what they do to make
Saint Charles Borromeo a better parish. This was a
very large task and all of those who assisted in any
way, are to be congratulated for their fine, fine job.
There really should have been a better showing of
parishioners on Sunday afternoon – don’t tell me,
Pittsburgh-Cleveland at 1:00 p.m. – but the Ministry
Fair kicked-off at 12-noon, a full hour before the
football kick-off. Those who did attend, I am sure,
will be most happy to tell you how beneficial an experience this was. Thank you to all who came,
thank you to all who set-up, cleaned-up, took up
their position at their station, sang for us, conducted
tours, did art work and wrote essays and the 101
other tasks that were undertaken to put forth such a
great exhibition of our parish’s stewardship in action. Great, great job!!
Having experienced the Ministry Fair, if through
no other means than by my account, it is now time
for each and every parishioner to come forth and
respond through the Stewardship Intention Form
that you received in the mail this week. It is now
your turn to make your commitment, your commitment of time, talent, and treasure. Please prayerfully consider your volunteer work as well as your financial support for the coming year. Do not just
throw the commitment form away, as that says
Celebrant Schedule:
Saturday, October 25
Sunday, October 26
4:00 p.m.: Father Rogers
7:30 a.m.: Fr. Rogers

Follow Us On:
something very serious about your view of Saint
Charles Borromeo Parish. As we well know, priests
come and priests go, but your relationship with your
parish is something that needs nurtured on your end
as well. So, take a moment, even if you are unable
or unwilling to actively participate in even one ministry, take a moment and fill out the intention form.
Own your choice, make your decision known, and
return your completed Stewardship Intention Form,
either in the collection basket, at the parish office or
through the mail. Your cooperation with the intention form is greatly appreciated.
On Thursday, November 13, 2014, A.C.T.I.O.N.
is bringing the African Children’s Choir back to
Youngstown. Some of you were present right here
at Saint Charles Borromeo Parish when the African
Children’s Choir performed last year. They provided
an entertaining as well as enriching evening for all
who were present. This year the African Children’s
Choir will be performing at Powers Auditorium at the
De-Yor Center in Youngstown. The concert will
begin at 7:00 p.m. Tickets for this year’s African
Children’s Choir can be purchased at the parish office. Tickets are $15.00 for adults, $5.00 for children 5-12, and children under 5 years old admitted
free of charge. It is sure to be another evening of
great entertainment, as well as support for a great
cause. Tickets will be available at the parish office
until Friday, October 31.
This very Sunday, we will have our spectacular
Spaghetti Dinner sponsored by the Knights of Columbus. The dinner will be held in the Father Haidet
Social Hall from 11:30 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. Carry
out orders will be available beginning after the 9:00
a.m. this Sunday. (Now that’s my idea of a healthy
breakfast – spaghetti and meatballs!!) The K of C
will also be holding a basket raffle during the spaghetti dinner. The price is only $8.00 for adults,
$5.00 for children ages 6-12, and children under 12
years-old eat for free. This will be a guaranteed
great dinner at a great price. Join us this Sunday,
October 19, from 11:30 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. for the
spaghetti dinner.
On a completely different track, Saint Charles
Borromeo Parish is sponsoring a grief support group.
The group will meet on Tuesday, October 28, 2014
at 6:00 p.m. in the Saint Luke Room. Anyone coping with the struggles of grief is invited to attend.
Further information can be had by calling either
Deacon Paul or Diana at the Parish Office. . .

Table Talk with Deacon Mike:
I had a birthday two weeks ago. Birthdays always remind me of a great line from Fr. Venglarik as I
complained one year about, while enjoying a birthday that
ends in 0 (to me, they are milestones), I hate the ones that
end in any other number. He shook his head and said,
“And there’s so many more of those.”
Sixty-four years I’ve been on this planet. While I
am often referred to as the old man on staff (having been
on staff longer than anyone else), I like to think of myself
as the voice of wisdom. And what are some of the things
I learned during my life?
• Try as hard as you might, you will never find the
missing mate to a sock, which is why I personally buy
many pairs of socks exactly the same.
• Making a mess in your slippers is not necessarily the
way a dog shows its affection for you, no matter what
your wife tries to tell you.
• If you cannot make at least one person laugh each
day, that day is wasted. Life is too short to be
grumpy all the time.
• Personally, I think grandkids are the greatest gift God
can give to the world as a way of saying how much
He respects life.
• Just when you think it can’t get any worse, God will
come through!
• I don’t just need to pray to God each day – I need to
depend on God each day
• God must really, really love me to be so kind and give
me another day to get it right!
Clearin’ the table.
Social Justice
All Eligible Parishioner’s Civic Duties
and the November 2014 Elections
Part of the Church’s Social Justice Guidelines has to do with a
Church and parishioner’s member’s civic duties. Involvement in
the government process is essential and critical especially in a
republic which operates as a democracy. This means all eligible
citizens should be, or become, registered voters. All registered
voters should be, or become, aware of each candidate’s character,
record, qualifications for office, etc. All registered voters should
familiarize himself, or herself, with the issues on the ballot.
Are you registered? If not, why not? Have you moved and
updated the Board of Elections record of you as an active voter
and citizen? Will you be absent from the County or Country on
Election Day (Tuesday, November 4th, 2014)? Have you inquired
or read up on a candidate’s history, honesty, attendance and voting
record, views, etc? Are you familiar with the ramifications of an
issue or the overall cost of an existing or new tax levy? Is the
Common good being served by a particular candidate or new issue
or change to an existing issue? Are you an informed voter, making wise voting decisions?
Men and women have died in the service or their country
and/or during civil rights demonstrations and activities for this
precious Right to Vote. You owe it to your family and neighborhood, village, city, county, the Country, to the Parish and the
Church, and most of all, to yourself to exercise this sacred franchise. Many elections are decided by just a very narrow margin of
counted votes. Your individual vote can and often does make a
difference on some issues and candidate’s victory or loss. Please
seriously consider registering to vote if you are not registered.
Please carefully vote when you do go to the polls. We are living
in some of the most historic times in the history of our communities and country and the world. Please participate in these historic

Stewardship Thought of the Week:
Today’s Gospel is not only a question about taxes, but rather, a question about Church and state. Do we allow our
political affiliations to shape and form our belief in Church
teaching or do we truly allow our relationship with Christ
and His Church to challenge our understanding and opinions in the public forum. May our sense of faith and stewardship invite us to always put Christ first.

A big thank you shout-out to the many, many parishioners who helped make our Stewardship
Ministry Fair a SUCCESS, from those who helped with preparation, intention form mailing,
ministry display design, set-up, booth manning, tour leaders, refreshments....the list goes
on! It was inspiring to see all of the many ways St. Charles Parishioners Make a Difference

Priesthood Sunday
Priesthood Sunday is a day to reflect upon and affirm the priesthood as a central role in the life of the Church. This year Priesthood Sunday will be celebrated on Sunday, October 26, 2014.
You can show your appreciation of their ministry with a personal
