Weekly Parish Bulletin From The Pastor Unless you live under a rock, I expect that you've been hearing a lot in the news recently about potential changes in the Catholic Church. A number of bishops and other Catholic leaders are meeting at the Vatican right now to plan for next year's synod on the family, and some of their plans have gotten out to the press. As usual, the secular press is terrible at reporting on the Church, largely because it refuses to acknowledge the presence and activity of the Holy Spirit. Furthermore, it makes little effort to study current teaching so as to accurately report what is changing. My advice: be patient! There are many ideas being contributed right now, and we should wait to see how many of them stick around and are incorporated into our pastoral practice. In the meantime, find some responsible Catholic media for informed reporting on the synod and lots of other issues. Diocesan Fuel and Hunger Grant Saint Timothy received our second round distribution in the amount of $1,605.26 from the Diocesan Fuel and Hunger Fund. These monies go to our Human Needs Committee to help with the many calls we get for assistance with utility bills, food, prescriptions and occasionally a place to sleep. The total grant from the diocese this year was $4,605.26. 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. Christmas Mother Program Essex County families in need may apply to be a part of the Christmas Mother program, which helps needy families with children ages 1 through 12 with Christmas gifts. Applications must be received by October 31. Only Essex County residents may apply.
