I’d go to church but….. Excuse #1: I’m too busy. Answer: We’re all busy. But we have time for what is really important to us. How we use our time indicates what our priorities really are. Rather than “I’m too busy” a more honest answer would be “the Gospel really isn’t very important to me". Excuse #2: …you don’t have to go to church to be a Christian. Answer: According to the Bible you do. Christianity is not just a personal moral code, but a new life lived in community. St. Paul who wrote more ‘books’ in the Bible than anyone else, says “that the Church is the body of Christ and individual Christians are parts of that body". An individual can no more be Christian without the Church than a finger can live without the body. The church is a team. Just as it is really difficult to play hockey by yourself, it’s really hard to be a Christian alone. Excuse #3:...the church is full of hypocrites. Answer: Come anyway, there is always room for one more. What can be more hypocritical than passing judgement on others and their motives and setting oneself up as better.
SUNDAY OFFERING: October 28, 2012 — $3,758.00 Thank you for your ongoing and generous support of the parish.
CONGRATULATIONS: To Lily Brown, winner of the Altar Server draw for October.

particular way for our Deceased. We have placed the Book of Remembrance with the names of deceased in our parish over the last year in the church. We also invite you to inscribe those whom you wish to remember and whom you would like us to pray for during the Month of the Holy Souls. CATHOLIC REGISTER: copies of this publication, which we will be
receiving on a bi-weekly basis, may be found at the church entrances. Suggested offering: $1 2012/2013 SUNDAY MISSALS : will be available next weekend. Price: $4. We encourage you to write your name on the inside cover so that if left in the church it is easier for us to return it to you.
