P SALM 116 Making Sense of the Various Appeals, Priorities, Needs Regular Parish Support Offertory Annual Catholic Parish Capital Campaign Retiring Our Debt Appeal National Collections To provide funding for our parish and our ministerial and operational needs To provide yearly operational support for diocesan ministries and programs To provide funding to pay off our parish’s debt on building To provide funding for charitable and social welfare work at home and abroad Weekly stewardship offerings from our parishioners remain in our parish. They support our parish needs such as programs for spiritual formation; staff salaries and benefits; facilities needs like heat, lights, insurance; and outreach to those in need. The Diocese of Helena’s Annual Catholic Appeal supports the array of diocesan programs, including social outreach, faith formation, pastoral outreach, media communications, diocesan tithing, world wide Church needs, and support for vocations. In the spring of 2013, we launched a new campaign to retire our debt by the parish’s 50th Anniversary celebration in 2016. If pledges continue to come in as scheduled, we should reach our debt free goal by 2016. Eight national collections take place in our parish throughout the year. These collections are: Peter’s Pence, Operation Rice Bowl, Black & Indian Missions, Catholic Relief Services, Catholic Home Missions, World Mission Sunday—Propagation of the Faith, Catholic Campaign for Human Development and the Retirement Fund for Religious. Your support allows our parish to exist and thrive and we thank you! It also includes support for our very own Catholic Campus Ministry. Your gift is held separately from other assets of the Diocese and used SOLELY to support appeal funded ministries. We gratefully accept gifts to help retire our debt and endow a building maintenance fund to cover future maintenance expenses. As a result of our status as a mission diocese, many of our parishes and communities are recipients of funding from three of these collections. Grow - rship Wo n Con ect - ve Christ the King Parish !

Transform November into a Month of Thanksgiving Very soon Americans will celebrate the Thanksgiving holi- days; a time where so much is devoted to sumptuous meals highlighted by turkey and pumpkin pie, traveling to and from the ancestral home, enjoying family, feasting on leftovers, seeing a Thanksgiving Day parade and watching football. Perhaps this November we might allow Thanksgiving to permeate our lives for more than just a day. How about the entire month? For many of us, Thanksgiving Day is so full of activity that there is a tendency to forget what’s at the heart of Thanksgiving, offering our thanks to God for the many gifts that have been bestowed upon us. Although sometimes the reason for the holiday is forgotten in our secular culture today, good stewards of their life and faith recognize that Thanksgiving should be directed primarily in God’s direction. Because the “busyness” of Thanksgiving Day can eas- ily distract us from slowing down to a pace more suitable to adequately expressing our gratitude to God, perhaps this November we might allow Thanksgiving to perme- ate our lives for more than just a day. How about the entire month? Expressing gratitude is at the heart of good stewardship. So, let ’s dedicate a little time each day in November to giving thanks for our blessings. Gracious and loving God, as the autumn season continues its transformation; and the days become shorter, the earth cooler; as we anticipate joining family and friends in joyful celebration on Thanksgiving Day, we pause to give You thanks and praise for the abundant blessings You have bestowed upon us: For life and health, safety and comfort, food and nourishment, we are sincerely grateful. Through your Spirit, open our hearts so that we may be even better stewards of these rich and unmerited gifts. Show us how to be a blessing for the poor, sick, lonely and all who suffer. And help us nurture the gift of faith, revealed to us by your Son, Jesus Christ, our greatest gift, who reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God forever and ever. Amen. Begin with November 1 and 2, All Saints Day and All Souls Day. Spend a few minutes each of those days thanking God for all the people in your life who have gone before you. Then, each day thereafter, set aside a few minutes to remember all that God has given you and say “Thank you.” Take part of a day and walk or hike down a wood- land path. Express your gratitude for the beauty of God’s autumn creation. Take a minute each day to thank the people in your life who matter to you. Tell them you’re thankful for them. Drop someone a note, place a short phone call or even text them! Telling people you’re thankful for them will enrich your life as well as theirs. Take a minute each day to thank the people in your life who matter to you. Make a point to attend at least one Mass outside the regular weekend Masses. Going to Mass on Thanksgiv- ing morning is an excellent way to enrich that holiday. As a community of faith, we know that giving glory to God in this way is an important aspect of our communal life of faith. Transform the month of November into a month of Thanksgiving. If you do, you will find your celebration of Thanksgiving Day a more richer and fuller experience than you could have imagined. In fact, you might just discover that your overall happiness with life improves. May this month of Thanksgiving be a time when we not only say “Thank You” to God, family and neighbor, but a time when our hearts draw us much closer to the Lord. The Commemoration of All the Faithful Departed (All Souls Day) ~ November 1/2, 2014 In today’s Gospel we envision a crowd following Jesus, seek- ing him. He invites them to embrace faith in himself and his Father in heaven and share in their eternal life. He comes right out and says that no one who comes will be rejected, reminding us that even those who feel estranged from God or the Church are welcomed. Good stewards know that ev- eryone can be raised up if they accept the Father’s will, and in turn, use the gifts God has given them to further Christ’s work. This promise gives us hope. The stewardship question is: Are we true seekers of the Lord? Do we genuinely desire a relationship with Christ? Are we willing to follow him? Gratitude is the soul of stewardship ! ! !
