Our sincere thanks to Agnes Hinkebein, RN, our
parish health minister, who coordinated this special

helpful serving as ministers of hospitality. It truly was a
prayerful experience for all. Our thanks to Agnes for all

Help the Hungry Bake Sale is just
around the corner...
I have been in the kitchen looking through
cookbooks trying to decide what I will be
baking for the Cookin’ Clergy Contest
Our community’s Help the Hungry Bake Sale is
scheduled for Saturday, November 22 in our school
gym. The bake sale benefits St. Vincent dePaul and
Ministerial Alliance food pantries. All parishioners are
invited to bake an item to bring to this annual event.
Our parish will be hosting the bread booth.
Our Holiday “Giving Tree”
is up and ready for you to pick an ornament to
help those visiting St. Vincent de Paul Pantry
The Women of Mary are again sponsoring a "Giving
Tree" to benefit our St. Vincent dePaul organization.
Since many of our clients who visit our St. Vincent de
Paul come only once a month, we are hoping to have
some Christmas presents available for them and for
their children in early December. The tree is located in
the entry of the Parish Center.
You may take an ornament from the tree, purchase
the item on the label, and then place the unwrapped
item under the tree. The volunteers from St. Vincent
dePaul will pick up the items and distribute them to
their clients before Christmas. Thanks to everyone for
your support to our holiday giving tree, each year you
are so generous to those in need from our local
Thanksgiving Day Mass at 9:00 am
with our Tradition of Sending Home with
You Blessed Loaves of Bread
As you make family plans for Thanksgiving Day,
please consider joining us for the 9:00 am mass to
give the ultimate gift of gratitude of Thanksgiving, the
Holy Eucharist.
For the past nine years, we have had the tradition of
the blessing of loaves of homemade bread to be taken
home and shared at your family’s Thanksgiving meal.
During the offertory collection, I will again invite you to
bring can goods, or monetary gifts for the poor to the
altar. These items will be blessed at the end of the
mass followed by the blessing of the bread.
My sincere thanks to Dolores Eddleman and her
family who will be baking the loaves of homemade
bread for this special St. Joseph’s Thanksgiving Day
The Dedication of the Lateran Basilica
A Special Evening for the Women
of St. Joseph's Parish
Our 5th Annual
Advent by Candlelight
“God’s Gift of Snow”
Our annual Advent by Candlelight evening will soon
be upon us... this is a wonderful way for our ladies to
prepare their hearts for the Christmas season each
year. This year’s Advent by Candlelight will be held on
Sunday, November 30 from 6:00 - 8:45 pm for our
ladies to come together for an evening of reflection,
celebration, and friendship as they prepare the way of
the Lord during the Season of Advent.
This evening is designed to bring our ladies together
for a relaxing evening of socialization while providing
a faithful reflection on the preparation for Christmas.
Sue Wilker, RN, Program Coordinator for the
Archdiocese Priest Wellness Program will be our
guest speaker and will give a heartfelt spiritual
presentation on “God’s Gift of Snow”.
Her presentation will be followed by a meditation by
our parishioner, Risha Gaines. The inspirational
music for the evening will be provided by Daryl
Buchheit. This evening is an exceptional time to
focus on the true meaning of Christmas as we prepare
for our family celebrations.
Several of our ladies will once again host a table for 8
and serve as hostesses for the evening. Our
hostesses will provide their guests with appetizers,
desserts and beverages.
The décor and table settings will be unique to each
hostess as the tables can be elaborate or simply
decorated. Some hostesses may bring china and
crystal, some paper and plastic, others may bring a
combination of both. It all works to transform our
parish center into a lovely setting for the evening. This
year we are asking all tables to have only one
This evening is also designed as a fund raiser for our
“Secret Santa” fund to help parishioners in special
need this holiday season. The top hostess raising the
most money from her guests at her table will receive a
special gift. All women are welcome! If you would
like to attend, please call the parish office and let us
know! Deadline to RSVP for this special evening is
Monday, November 24.

A Prayer for our Brothers and
Sisters in Ferguson
O, Loving Father, You, the creator of the earth and
creator of human beings in your image, send your
Spirit upon our neighborhoods and members of our
churches that our hearts become hearts of love and
not hearts of stone. May your Spirit fill us with insight
and understanding of the issues that lay below the
surface. We stand before you in our brokenness,
pleading for your grace to come upon us, that we
might be filled with your presence at this time. We ask
this through Christ our Lord.
Taken from a prayer from the Ferguson Ministerial Alliance.

The Dedication of the Lateran Basilica
In all three of today’s readings, the Temple or an image of the Temple is dominant. Ezekiel speaks of streams
of living water flowing out from the Temple, watering the desert, bringing life to all living things, offering fresh
healing to God’s people.
Paul reminds the Corinthians that their faith rests upon the firmest of foundations, Christ himself. More than
that, Paul reveals that those who follow Christ are themselves temples, temples of the Holy Spirit. That is,
God dwells not only with them but in them as well.
For the Jews of Jesus’ time, the Temple had come to be identified with the presence of God and the only
place where authentic worship of God took place. Jesus had a different perception. Jesus identified himself
not with the Temple, but as the temple. By so doing, Jesus indicated a drastic shift in what it means to
worship God, to be in God’s presence. Jesus replaced a place as the focus of prayer with a person—himself.
The Holy Temple
Sometimes reflection on God’s word leads to meditation, sometimes to action, and sometimes to
storytelling. This is one of the storytelling times.
In ancient Israel lived two brothers who loved each other dearly. The older brother had no family. The
younger did. As poor farmers, the brothers shared the same field. At harvest, they shared the wheat they
had grown, each one receiving an equal share. Each would gather his pile of wheat and place it in a sheaf
outside his house.
But one day, after the harvest, when the two had divided the wheat, the older brother woke up in the middle
of the night and thought to himself: “My brother has more responsibilities and mouths to feed than I.” So,
night after night, he took some of his wheat and added it to his brother’s share.
Meanwhile, the younger brother, too, could not sleep. He thought: “My brother has no sons to care for him
in his old age as I do.” So, night after night, he took some of his wheat and added it to his brother’s share.
Each morning, the brothers were surprised that their
heaps of wheat had not grown smaller. At last, one
night, the brothers caught one another carrying a bundle
of wheat to the other’s house. Realizing what had been
happening, the brothers rushed to embrace one another
with great brotherly love.
God saw what the two brothers had done and said,
“Blessed be the field where these two brothers are
standing and embracing.” Many years later, King
Solomon built the holy Temple on the very same ground
where these two brothers had embraced, and the holy
Temple became a place of love and blessing to all
people everywhere.
Holy People Holy Place
God’s Temple—God’s church—is built on the care,
support, and love of its members. Where people
embrace, where people gather in God’s name, God is
present, uniting them to one another, making them and
the place holy.

“Giving Tree”
The Women of Mary are
again sponsoring a "Giving
Tree" to benefit our St.
Vincent de Paul
organization. Since the
clients who visit our St.
Vincent de Paul come
only once a month, we
are hoping to have
some Christmas
presents available for them
and their children before
the end of November.
The tree is located in
the entry of the Parish Center. You may take an
ornament from the tree, purchase the item on the
label, and then place the unwrapped item under
the tree. The volunteers from St. Vincent de Paul
will pick up the items and distribute them to their
clients before Christmas. Thanks to everyone for
your support; each year you are so generous to
those in need from our local community.

In today’s Gospel Jesus challenges us to “stay
awake” by taking time to seriously look at
ourselves, the priorities of our lives, and how we
are growing spiritually.
Ask yourself “What would Jesus Christ do?”
and then put your gift in the St. Vincent de Paul
envelope so that those who are suffering will be
able to celebrate Thanksgiving.
Open Tuesday and Friday
9:00 am - 12:00 pm
For assistance call 756-0997
Our food pantry serves people
in the St. Francois county
regardless of race, sex,
national origin, religion, or age.
