A Note from the Pastor – Oct. 1

Fr. Gerard Lecomte, CJM

The Holy Spirit draws us each Sunday to this holy place. We gather together as the body of Christ to celebrate the Eucharist. We pray that we may be made worthy of the call we received in baptism to witness to God’s saving power in what we say and what we do. As we hear from the author of Hebrews, we have been consecrated in the Lord, and in fact have been made the Lord’s brothers and sisters. Let us raise our voices in song and prayer as sisters and brothers of our Savior. After three diocesan voices, our bishop is asking the pastors to take their turn to preach on the Eucharist!

This weekend is Respect Life Sunday, sponsored by the Bishops’ Committee for Pro-Life Activities. The observance emphasizes concern for all human life, especially that of the unborn, the elderly, persons with disabilities, the terminally ill, and others whose lives are easily threatened. The United States Catholic Bishops have an excellent information page on their website: https://www.usccb.org/prolife.

Life is about all created beings.
