PO Box 67, Bagley, MN 56621 OUR LADY OF THE ROSARY, PRAY FOR US We are to be authentic evangelists, that is, the central gospel message is also to be the center of our own preaching, so that all may clearly hear that they can be saved from the sins that depress and cripple their spirit, and can live a new life in God in his light. It is the one righteous act of the one man Jesus Christ on the cross that does this for us, when we believe and personally trust in him. The message about this is the basic gospel message that we are to preach to the nations. Love & Life Blurbs: Year of Marriage “…the Church is called upon to offer support and guidance, wherever she be, in faithfulness to the Lord’s mandate to proclaim the beauty of family love.

May I?, humility to ask forgiveness.” Preface to the Instrumentum laboris for: II General Assembly October 2014 30th Sunday in Ordinary Time October 26, 2014 Parish Office: 694-6416 E-Mail: [email protected] Website: www.stjosephsbagley.org PARISH STAFF: Pastor: Fr.

SAFETY MEASURES TAKEN AT THE VOTIVE CANDLE STAND "The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit" Ps. 34: 18. Dear friends, Some of us asked, "Is it safe to light the candles in the votive candle stand or should we put it off when we leave the church?" It was discussed at our last Pastoral Council meeting. All the safety measures, prescribed by the Diocesan insurance policy, has been taken care of and therefore it is safe to light the candles and leave it to extinguish by itself. We request you not to allow your kids near the votive candle stand. If they want to light candles, let the parents or the guardians be with them. After lighting the candle, please place the used matchstick inside the glass container kept on the stand. Let us make use of this opportunity to offer our prayers and petitions to the Lord, who "hears the cry of the poor", as Ps. 34: 6 says. God bless.
