Thank you for your generosity!

subsidy for the school.

& Needy Fund.
SCHOOL SUBSIDY COLLECTION
Please note that each month our parish is required to
make a subsidy payment to the school for $3,336.
The amount collected in our monthly second
collection for the school is used to offset this
monthly payment. It is not given directly to the
school.
POOR & NEEDY FUND COLLECTION
A few years ago, a parishioner gave us a donation to
be used specifically for the poor & needy. A separate
account was established and over the years donations
were made from these funds to various charitable
organizations and individuals who were in desperate
need. Currently there is less than $1,000 remaining
in the account. There will be a second collection next
weekend to replenish the funds so we can continue
to help those who need it most.
VETERANS DAY
Tuesday, November 11th, is Veterans Day.
Please remember to pray for our veterans

Mc-GANN MERCY THEATRE COMPANY
On November 20th - 22nd, the members of the

will perform their version of Ken Ludwig’s
situational comedy, "Moon Over Buffalo". Set in the
1950’s, this comedy revolves around two aging
actors working in a repertory theatre in Buffalo, New
York, striving for their “big shot” at fame, who learn
that Frank Capra would be coming to see their
matinee and might cast them in one of his
films. Apparently, the universe conspires against
them, and anything that could go wrong or awry
does. Running from Thursday, November
20th through Saturday, November 22nd in the school
auditorium, the show starts at 7:30 pm. Tickets are
$10 per person and are sold at the door.

the church.

PRAYER FOR ALL MILITARY PERSONNEL
 O God, kindly watch over those
exposed to the dangers of military life.
Give them strong faith that nothing may
ever lead them to deny it or fear to
practice it. Fortify them by your grace
against the contagion of bad example,
so that preserved from vice and serving you
faithfully, they may be ready to meet death if it
should come.
Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, inspire them with
sorrow for sin and grant them pardon. Mary, our
Mother, be with them in battle, and should they be
called upon to make the supreme sacrifice, obtain for
them the grace to die in the love of your Divine Son.
St. Joseph, pray for them. Amen.
