Class The Catholic Campaign for Human Development (CCHD) has come to the aid of communities nationwide for over 40 years in an effort to eradicate poverty. During World Youth Day, July 25, 2013, Pope Francis told us to “never tire of working for a more just world, marked by greater solidarity.” CCHD puts these words into action by funding housing, education and the development of job opportunities. Catholic Trivia Answer: There is no St. John Lateran. The Cathedral in Rome is named St. John Lateran because two of it’s patrons are St. John the Baptist and St. John the Evangelist. Lateran refers to the family who gave the land to the pope so the Cathedral could be built. Saint Quote of the Week: “How could I bear a crown of gold when the Lord bears a crown of thorns?” and bears it for me!” St. Elizabeth of Hungary, Feast Day November 17th Projects supported by CCHD move beyond providing for basic needs. They work to build healthy, sustainable futures for communities. This past year CCHD provided grants to several organizations including: Catechism Quote of the Week: 1360 The Eucharist is a sacrifice of thanksgiving to the Father, a blessing by which the Church expresses her gratitude to God for all his benefits, for all that he has accomplished through creation, re- *Cantalician Center’s program that prepares developmentally disabled adults for employment. *Vive la Casa in its efforts to provide life skills education for refugees. *NOAH, Niagara Organizing Alliance for Hope, in its work to provide improved public transportation. CHRISTMAS TREE TAGS Thank you to all parishioners for your generous response in taking one or more tags from our Giving Tree for St. Luke’s Mission of Mercy.

Please return all gifts wrapped and with the tag attached by December 1st to the Church or the Parish Office during normal business hours. This collection is the primary source of funding for CCHD grants and education programs. Collection funds offer new hope each year to those living in poverty throughout the United States. And remember, 25 percent of the Collection proceeds stay here in our diocese to fight poverty in our communities and defend the dignity of our neighbors. Help us defend human dignity and show Christ’s charity to those in need. SUNDAY TV MASS 7:30AM WUTV Fox TV 29 Nov. 16 Rev Walter Szczeny, Nov. 23 Rev. Msgr. Jerome Sullivan, Nov. 30 Rev. Angelo Chimera FAMILY LIFE MINISTRIES St. Paul reminds us in his letter to the Romans of many comforting words. During times of loss, loneliness and grief, we may not feel or recognize God’s presence in our lives.
