EXPANSION CAMPAIGN 2014:
Our Goal:
$2,500,000
Pledged as of 10/15/14: $572,225
Do you know that our Fundraising
Committee has already saved this
campaign over $250,000? All the
development of the expansion brochure
and campaign literature has been
performed by members of this
committee. The parish is not using an
outside source to run this campaign.
That allows us to put the money towards
what we need...the ability to pay for the
expansion. Make sure you take a look at
the Expansion page on our parish
website:

Thirtieth Sunday
Dear Friends,
On this Thirtieth Sunday in Ordinary Time Jesus once again found himself being
tested by the Pharisees. This time he was asked to name the greatest law. He does so, but
immediately invokes its complement, placing love of God and love of neighbor on equal
footing. Jesus’ point is that you cannot have one without the other. Our challenge this
week is to examine how our love of God is reflected in our love for neighbor.
Next Saturday is November 1st, the Solemnity of All Saints. Although this is still a
Holyday, the bishops of our country suspended the obligation to attend Mass on Saturday.
Therefore, we will celebrate Mass in church that day at 9 AM. All are most welcome to attend
and pray for the intercession of all the saints of the church.
Next Saturday Vigil and Sunday, we will celebrate the Commemoration of All Souls. At the
11 AM Mass we will pray in particular for all of our parishioners who died since last year’s
celebration. We will also remember these souls and the souls of all your loved ones that you
submit to us throughout the month of November, the month of the Holy Souls. May they all rest in
the peace of Christ!
In Ordinary Time
Today at the 11 AM Mass we welcome back FATHER STEVEN MILLS from Lincoln
Nebraska! We are grateful for his presence with us and delight in his priestly ministry among us
today!
Our parish campaign “BUILDING ON OUR FAITH...EXPANDING OUR LEGACY”
continues. All parishioners were requested to make a pledge and contribution to this worthy
project by November 1st. If you have already made this commitment, thank you! If you have not, there is
still time to consider your participation. This expansion and renovation effort has the needs of all
parishioners in mind. Please see this as something that will benefit YOU!
As we approach the month of November, let our praise and thanksgiving ring out for all the good
gifts the Lord has showered upon us!
Saint Robert Bellarmine, pray for us.

ST. VINCENT DE PAUL - In this Sunday’s Gospel
we find the truth that loving God isn’t merely a
matter of fervor in our hearts, but that it must
be expressed in doing good for the sake of
others.
This month, through your gifts, the Society
of St. Vincent de Paul was able to show that
we indeed love our neighbors by assisting
families, providing fuel, food, assistance with
utility and rent bills, etc. Thank You!

Our Fall PREP and SJR school students were asked to

FOCUS ON FAITH
THIRTIETH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME
Exodus 22: 20-26; 1 Thessalonians 1:5-19; Matthew 22:34-40
Jesus’ words about loving as the greatest commandment aren’t empty ones, for
sure. This is exactly what he did—-he loved with his all to the extent that he
gave his life for us. Did you ever notice that when we someone reaches out to us
in our need, we then try to be more responsive to others in need? When
someone loves us deeply, we learn to love others more deeply. We learn to live
the greatest commandment—-love—from the greatest teacher: Jesus.
What struggles do you face when it comes to loving God?
What struggles do you face when it comes to loving your neighbor?
What struggles do you face when it comes to loving yourself?
Ten Themes for the World Meeting of Families — Part I
LOVE IS OUR MISSION — THE FAMILY FULLY ALIVE
1.Created for Joy — We are more than an accident of evolution. We are greater than the sum of our biology. God
exists. He is good. He loves us. He made us in his image to share in his joy. He takes an active hand in our
lives. He sent his only Son to restore our dignity and lead us home to him.
2.The Mission of Love —God works through us. We have a mission. We are in the world for a purpose — to
receive God’s love and to show God’s love to others. God seeks to heal a broken universe. He asks us to be his
witnesses and helpers in that work.
3.The Meaning of Human Sexuality —The tangible, earthly, corporeal world is more than inert matter or modeling clay for the human will. Creation is sacred. It has sacramental meaning. It reflects God’s glory. That includes our bodies. Our sexuality has the power to procreate, and shares in the dignity of being created in the
image of God. We need to live accordingly.
4.Two Become One—We are not made to be alone. Human beings need and complete each other. Friendship and
community satisfy that longing with bonds of common interest and love. Marriage is a uniquely intimate form
of friendship that calls a man and a woman to love each other in the manner of God’s covenant.
Marriage
is a Sacrament. Married love is fruitful and offered without reservation. This love is in the image of Jesus’s
faithfulness to the Church.
5.Creating the Future—Marriage is meant to be fertile and welcome new life. Children shape the future, just as
they themselves are shaped in their families. Without children, there can be no future. Children reared with
love and guidance are the foundation for a loving future.
Wounded children portend a wounded future. Families are
the bedrock for all larger communities. Families are
domestic churches, places where parents help children discover that God loves them and has a plan for each child’s
life.

RESPECT LIFE
It's a nation gone mad. It seems that every crackpot
group with an agenda are making claims to alleged
rights and are being granted their claims by the courts
or by Congress. The only legitimate Constitutional
right is the right to life and it is being suppressed and
attacked. "It is the right of every pregnant woman to
give birth . . . and the right of every child to be born."
40 DAYS FOR LIFE (Ongoing thru Nov. 2)
Louis Drive Planned Parenthood in Warminster
Weren't able to make our day you can still participate
by going over any day to pray and witness outside the
clinic.
PRAYER TO CLOSE LOUIS DRIVE P.P.
Father all life is in your care. You have entrusted us to
one another, that we may show our brothers and sisters the same love you have for us. We pray then for
the least among us, the children in the womb. Protect
them from the violence of abortion. We pray for those
who are scheduled to die at the planned parenthood on
Louis Drive in Warminster. Save them from death.
Give new hope to their parents, that they may turn
away from this desperate act of abortion. Garant conversion to the abortionist and to the staff. Show us
how we are to resopond to the bloodshed in our midst.
Lead us to that day when this place of death will be
transformed into a haven of life. Guard us with your
joy and your peace, for in you, life is victorious.
"See that you do not look down on one of these little
ones. For I tell you that their angels in heaven always
see the face of my Father in heaven.“ Matthew 18:10
