MISSION STATEMENT
We CELEBRATE the Gospel when we encounter Jesus Christ in the Sacraments and
through prayer.
We TEACH the Gospel in order to strengthen each family in their knowledge of and
in their relationship with God.
We LIVE the Gospel by seeking justice, granting forgiveness and through works of
service which enhance the spiritual, emotional, social and physical well-being of the
entire community.
This is what the Lord asks of you:
Only this
To act justly
To love tenderly
To walk humbly with your God
Micah 6:8
October 19, 2014

Celebration of the Sacraments
“The purpose of the sacraments is to sanctify men, to
build up the Body of Christ and, finally, to give worship
to God. Because they are signs, they also instruct. They
not only presuppose faith, but by words and objects they
also nourish, strengthen and express it. That is why they
are called ‘sacraments of faith’.”
— Catechism of the Catholic Church, 1123

Baptism
Requesting the Sacrament of Baptism for a child involves a
serious obligation and a faith commitment on the part of
both parents. In order to prepare both parents for this task,
they will be requested to attend a Baptismal Preparation
Session prior to the Baptism. To register, call the Family
Life Office (231-0671). The Sacrament of Baptism is
celebrated on the 2nd Saturday of each month. A date for
Baptism cannot be scheduled until the necessary
preparation has been completed. Parents are encouraged to
begin preparation prior to the birth of their child.
Confirmation
Candidates are those already baptized and who have
received the necessary formation in religious education.
Candidates must be at least in the 9th grade to receive this
Sacrament.
Reconciliation
The Sacrament is celebrated each Saturday 11:00 AM 12:00 Noon except Holy Saturday.
Anointing of the Sick
The Sacrament is administered on request to those who are
ill at home, in the hospital or nursing home. Please call the
Parish Office (231-0671). It also is administered on the First
Saturday of every month after the 8:00 AM Mass.
Matrimony
Congratulations on your engagement. Call the Parish Office
(231-0671) to make arrangements at least six months in advance.
It is necessary that either the prospective bride, groom or their
family are registered members of Holy Cross Parish.
Holy Orders
If you feel you may have a vocation to serve the people of
God in the Priesthood of Jesus Christ, contact Fr. Thomas
Lafreniere at the Diocesan Vocation Office (561-7759555) or speak to one of the parish priests.
We give God something
that we do not give to any
earthly ruler. That thing
is worship. And this is
precisely why we are
gathered
here—to
worship God, Creator of
the universe and Lord of
all.
First Reading (Is 45:1.4-6). The return of the people
from exile—a return made possible by King Cyrus—is
seen as a sign of God’s love for his people, Israel, and of
his lordship over all peoples.
Second Reading (1 Thess 1:1-5). Here we see Paul’s
concern for the Christians at Thessalonika.
Gospel (Mt 22:15-21). This is the story of an effort
by the enemies of Jesus to trap him into saying something
incriminating.
The question put to Jesus was a test
question to see whether he would
declare himself on the side of those
who opposed paying taxes to the
Romans (e.g. the Pharisees), or on the
side of those who collaborated with the
Romans (e.g. the Herodians). If he said
Yes, he would lose the esteem of the
people, and would be regarded as a
traitor to the Jewish cause and the
Jewish religion. If he said No, he could
be denounced as fomenting rebellion
against Rome. In his answer Jesus
recognizes that the State has a role, but
its power is limited and does not
supplant God.

A Book of Remembrance will
be in the Vestibule of the
Church through Friday,
October 31st. You are invited
to write in this book the names
of family and friends who have
died.
The Book of
Remembrance will then be
displayed in the Sanctuary area beginning Saturday,
November 1st so that the deceased will be especially
remembered at all Liturgies during the month of
November.
Wedding Renewal
The Church continues to uphold the Sacrament of
Matrimony despite a high rate of divorce. The solidarity of
the family plays a major role in stabilizing our society. In
order to boost this solidarity, husbands and wives should
avail themselves of the opportunity to renew their marriage
commitment whether it is on the date of the marriage or a
general renewal which takes place annually in the Parish.
On Saturday, October 25, we will have a renewal of vows
during the 5:30 PM Mass. A wine and cheese reception
will take place on the veranda immediately following Mass.
All married couples are invited.
On Sunday, October 26, parents who
have children eligible for the reception
of the Eucharist for the first time will
participate in an enrollment ceremony at the 9:00 AM Mass.
Parents of First Communicants play a very active roll in
preparing their child to receive the Sacrament with the help of
resources from the Religious Education Department. We ask
for the prayers of all parishioners for the parents and
candidates.
A Novena of Masses for the faithful departed will take
place during the month of November. Please use the
appropriate intention envelopes included in your monthly
package or found in the vestibule of the Church to have
your loved ones remembered in this Novena. In addition,
these intentions will be placed on the altar during the
month of November. Please return the envelopes on or
before November 1st.

candidate. Fr. Sabas, the administrator at OLG,

Stewardship is recognizing
that everything we have is
truly God’s. Thus, when Jesus
says, “Give to Caesar what is
Caesar's; give to God what
belongs to God,” we need to understand that everything
belongs to God.
WE ARE STEWARDS . . .
and this is how we live out our stewardship!
To be a good Christian steward is to recognize that God
has blessed us richly. We also need to acknowledge those
blessings by returning a portion of our gifts of time,
talent, and treasure in gratitude.

Treasure - The offertory for the weekend of October
11-12 totaled $20,774.53 of which $1,041.00 came
from on-line giving.
We would like to thank The Source, who are helping us
to distribute our funds to those who have requested
assistance from Holy Cross. August and September have
been extremely demanding with payments for utilities.
We are also presently helping 4 families on a temporary
basis who are encountering some unexpected issues at
the present time. Thanks to all parishioners who are so
generous in donating to the Community Outreach Fund.
Time and Talent - The Holy Cross Service Ministry is
gathering a team to represent Holy Cross in the 11th
annual “A Walk to Remember” to be held on
Saturday, November 8 at 8:00 AM in Riverside Park
to benefit the Alzheimer & Parkinson Association. You
may walk in honor of, or in memory of a loved one who
has been affected by Alzheimer’s or Parkinson’s disease.
If you are able to join the Holy Cross Team, please call
Pat Kroger at 231-0671 or stop by the parish office.
May God bless and reward your stewardship.
“For everything there is a season and
a time for every purpose under heaven . . .
