BASEMENT DEVELOPMENT & BATHROOM RENOVATION BY EUOROPIAN KRAFSTMAN ~ LICENCED ~ BONDED ~ INSURED ~ To advertise in this Bulletin please contact the Parish Office. Today the Church celebrates the dedication of the Lateran Basilica – the cathedral church for the Bishop of Rome, the Pope. In celebrating a house of prayer, we are celebrating the place where God wishes to dwell: the people he calls his own, his living temple. As Saint Caesarius of Arles said on this feast long ago, “whenever we come to church, we must prepare our hearts to be as beautiful as we expect this church to be. Do you wish to find this basilica immaculately clean? Then do not soil your soul with the filth of sins. Do you wish this basilica to be full of light? God too wishes that your soul be not in darkness, but that the light of good works shine in us.” We who believe in Jesus are responsible for being holy places where others will find God. But we are also church, a community of believers who are to offer a collective witness of integrity, justice, mercy and love to all the world. We are a voice that speaks out for what is right, defends the dignity of the poor and disadvantaged, and prays to God for guidance. When he was offering his congregation a vision of the church, Henry Ward Beecher said, “Some churches are like lighthouses, built of stone, so strong that the thunder of the sea cannot move them – with no light at the top. That which is the light of the world in the Church is not its largeness, or its services celebrated with pomp and beauty, nor its music, nor the influences in it that touch the taste or instruct the understanding: it is the Christ likeness of its individual members.” DIOCESE ANNOUNCEMENTS St. Mary’s High School Join us for and Information and Open House on Wednesday, November 19, 7-9 PM.

STEWARDSHIP REFLECTION "You know neither the day nor the hour." (Matthew 25.13) Stewardship is not something we do only on Sunday or only in the church. To practice discipleship we must cultivate a disposition of stewardship at all times so that whenever the bridegroom arrives, whether on Wednesday, in a parking lot, while we are at work, or at play, we will be ready to meet Him. Catholic Education Sunday Today we celebrate Catholic Education Sunday, in recognition of the wonderful work taking place throughout the province in our Catholic schools. A special collection will be taken, which provides you with an opportunity to support Catholic education in our community and to ensure the continued success of our Catholic schools. Our Catechism of the Catholic Church states that faith is a gift we receive from family and community, a gift nurtured by those around us and as receivers of faith we are called to hand it on to others. Your generous donation will support students through the Calgary Catholic Education Foundation and St. Mary’s University College as well as the seminarians at Newman College. With almost 52,000 students attending our Catholic schools the needs are many! For each one of these students who have touched your life please consider a donation of $5 per child. On behalf of Calgary Catholic students we thank you in advance for your generosity and support.

DEVELOPMENT & PEACE What can Canadians do to Address Global Hunger? There are close to one billion – one in eight – people who suffer from hunger in the world. Pope Francis has called this a global scandal and calls us to question the status quo. Development and Peace is continuing to respond to the Pope’s call to action with its new campaign Sow much Love. How can Canadians address Global Hunger? Food experts agree that the solution to hunger is supporting local farmers and their access to seeds. Today more than 50% of the global seed market is controlled by three companies who have been engineering genetically modified (GM) seeds which are patented. Increasing corporate control of seeds is making it difficult for small family farmers to have access to seeds. Our buying habits can have a powerful impact. As part of the one global family we can show our support through how we consume. Here are some simple changes that you can make that will have an impact. 1) Support small family farmers by buying locally grown produce when in season. 2) Purchase fair-trade products. 3) Buy organic foods. They are GMO-free. 4) Signing the D&P Petition that will be available after next Sunday’s Mass. We can make a difference!
