ATTITUDE CHANGE Todays readings ask us to re-think our attitudes and ways. The passage from the book of Wisdom reminds us that, when it comes to understanding, even the wisest person barely scrapes the surface of things. In Pauls provocative little letter to Philemon, the apostle praises Philemon for his understanding of the social orderwhich included slaveryand for his good treatment of Onesimus. Then Paul goes on to drop his bombshell. He tells Philemon that Onesimus is now a Christian and should be treated as suchas a brother, an equal. What was Philemon to think? Todays Gospel tells us that if we are to follow Jesus, we must do some serious planning. Then, once all our planning is complete, we have to be willing to accept the fact that our plans are never enough. Copyright J. S. Paluch Co.

BABY BOTTLE COLLECTION TO SAVE LIVES After all the Masses next weekend, on September 14 and 15, baby bottles will be passed out for Womens Care Center, a local crisis pregnancy center. When you take home a bottle and fill it with change and dollars you may have spent on treats or entertainment during the following three weeks, you will be helping to save babies from abortion. When young women face unexpected pregnancies, they need positive answers from people who care. Womens Care Center provides free pregnancy tests, free ultrasounds, confidential counseling, maternity and baby clothing, medical and housing referralsall free of charge. Your generosity makes this possible. The baby bottles will be collected before Mass on October 5 and 6, during Respect Life Month. Thank you for being a life saver!
St. Albert the Great is in need of 2 or 3 money counters to count the Sunday offertory collections. If you are interested in helping out please contact Parish Manager Deacon Pete Manning at 708 636-0406. The Baptism Preparation Ministry here at St. Albert the Great is looking for 2 or 3 couples to help in the Baptism preparation ministry. Baptism preparation takes place on the last Monday of the month from 7:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. This ministry prepares parents for the Sacrament of Baptism. Couples will be fully trained and will actually present on a rotating basis. For more information please contact Deacon Pete Manning in our Religious Education office or call him at 708 636-0406. Please pray about becoming a part of this ministry.
One of the things our Blessed Lord asks of us is to go out and spread the Good News to all the nations. We do this in many ways, and one of the best ways we can spread the Good News is to hand down our faith to our children. St. Albert the Great has an opportunity for you to spread the Gospel message to children here in the parish by becoming a catechist. The religious education department is looking for (CCD) Catechists for first, second, third, and forth grades. These classes currently meet every other Saturday from 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. We are also in need of two High School Catechists. The high school program meets on Tuesday evenings from 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Please pray and consider being a Catechist. The harvest is plenty and laborers are few. For more information please contact Deacon Pete Manning Coordinator of Religious Education for St. Albert the Great at 708 636-0406.
