OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST, KING OF THE UNIVERSE
PANTRY CORNER
The Mother Theresa’s Hands and Hearts Ministry
at St. Dominic Catholic Church is temporarily closed
as it is in the process of being relocated.
Thank you for all your donations & support.
ANSWER TO LAST WEEK’S QUESTION: Advent
is rapidly approaching, beginning with the Vigil Mass on
November 29th. What is the purpose of Advent? The
purpose of Advent is two-fold: joyful anticipation for the
coming celebration of the Incarnation of Christ (when God
took on human flesh to dwell among us) and a time of
preparation to “get our spiritual houses in order.”
This
weekend we also celebrate the Feast of Christ the King, when
we recognize God’s reign in heaven and on earth.
ADVENT MISSION AT ST. DOMINIC’S
There will be an Advent Mission at St.
Dominic’s from December 9-11, 2014 starting
each day at 7:00 pm with Mass. This Mission
is to help us all slow down and focus on the
depth, beauty and meaning of our preparation
for the birth of Jesus. The Mission will be led
by Fr. Larry Brennan, a priest of the Archdiocese of St. Louis on assignment in the Diocese
of Colorado Springs. Fr. Brennan will help us
all deepen our Advent experience as we prepare for Christmas.
ATTENTION PARENTS OF
CCD STUDENTS
Please do not park in the Day Chapel parking lot to drop off and
pick up your children from classes. These parking places are
reserved for the elderly and handicapped. We have several elderly that go to the 11 am Mass that are in need of a spot that is
closer to the church. Thank you for thinking of others when
parking.
Blessings, Sherry Staatz, Director of Religious Education
THE CHRISTMAS ANGELS NEED YOUR HELP!
Once again we will be collecting cookies to be
handed out to Appletree Assisted Living and The
Villas at Southgate. We will be collecting the
cookies from November 23 through December 14.
Please place your donations in the marked box in the
Narthex.

Stewardship Thought: Stewardship means returning to the
Lord a worthy portion of His many gifts to us, and to make
this giving our way of life. By so doing, we affirm our love
for Jesus; we acknowledge that He is truly the owner of all
things; that we are grateful for His many blessings. By so
doing, we respond to His call, “Come, follow me.”

PERPETUAL EUCHARISTIC ADORATION
If you ever doubt God’s love for you, look at Him
suffering on the cross for you. Look at Him hiding
Himself in the Sacred Host, so you can believe. He
loves you with an everlasting love and waits for you
to come to Him in Adoration. He also waits for you
to join Him someday in Heaven. He has a place for
you there, very close to Him. Right now, there is a
day and an hour for you in Adoration!
For more information about Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration at St. Dominic, please call Barbara at 391-0452.
Do you think you might be called to the Permanent Diaconate?
Have you ever felt an a rac on to a public ministry in the Church? We invite you
to come to one of the following informa on nights to see if the permanent diaconate might be what God is calling you to. What is this evening for? It’s to learn
about the diaconate. It’s to learn about discernment. It’s to connect with those
involved with deacon forma on. It’s to meet others like you, thinking about the
diaconate. It’s for your family to find out what this call is all about.
What do I need to do?
First of all, make sure -- if you are married -- that you have talked about this with
your wife and family. Second, make sure that you have a conversation with your
pastor, since he will be an important part of the discernment and formation process.
And, finally, please make plans to attend one of the information nights listed below. You and your wife (if you are married) are welcome to come and ask questions regarding the process. Each evening is scheduled from 7:00 – 9:00 p.m. at
the following locations throughout the Diocese.
St. Patrick – Bonzel Hall – Wednesday, January 7, 2015

We hope to see you there. Peace and God’s blessing to you.
Ponderings of a Parochial Vicar
My Dear Parishioners, It has been 5 weeks since I spoke to you regarding the financial status of St. Dominic Parish. I
thought it only right that you should have an update of our status and several of you have asked where the money goes.
To this second question, I have created the pie chart below for your reference. Please note that nowhere on the pie chart
is there a section for savings or a “rainy day” fund, or a section for future plans. We use every dollar for current expenses. Please also realize that this chart is based on a weekly collection of $25,245.00 each week. This really is the absolute minimum! Additionally, we still have to make up the debts we have not paid, for instance the $60,000+ we owe the
Diocese in back payments.
So what has changed since I last spoke with you? Here is the breakdown for the last 5 weeks:
Weekend of 10/18-19: $25,000-$16,216.95=8,783.05 SHORTFALL
Weekend of 10/25-26: $25,000-$18,433.22=6,566.78 SHORTFALL
Weekend of 11/1-2:
$25,000-$18,955.41=6,044.59 SHORTFALL
Weekend of 11/8-9:
$25,000-$19,857.99=5,142.01 SHORTFALL
Weekend of 11/15-16: $25,000-$14,245.34=10,754.66 SHORTFALL
The current annual shortfall for this parish is $76,415. This cannot continue.
Since my financial talk to you, only 2 families have signed up for bank-to-bank tithing and 3 families have changed their
bank-to-bank amount.
Here are the weekly dollar amounts averaged over the last 12 months, which correspond to the pie chart below:
EXPENSE
Worship (Liturgy/Music) - $1,357
Tithe - $1,869*
Faith Formation/Youth - $2,873
Diocese Tithe - $3,271*
Priests Salary and Benefits - $1,053
Property/Liability Insurance - $699
Office Salaries and Benefits - $3,467
Other - $1,197
Facilities - $2,206
Loan Payment (Principal and Interest) - $7,252
TOTAL EXPENSE - $25,245
*NOTE: The Tithe to Charity and Tithe to the Diocese = 20%
We cannot continue with these shortfalls! We must increase the amount of the collection otherwise, we will be forced to
make some drastic changes.
This is not one person’s problem. We must all help out a little bit. Little amounts have great impact. Here is an example:
If 1,400 families each gave an additional $5 each week, that would increase our weekly amount by $7,000. Please, my
brothers and sisters, this is your parish. We must all share the load. Please help us serve you and work to continue
God’s work in our community.
Your servant in Christ,
Fr. John
