“Prayer is an act of love, words are not needed. Even if sickness
distracts from thoughts, all that is needed is the will to love.”
-St. Teresa of Avila(1515-1582), Patron of Headache sufferers, Feast Day October 15
Our Lady of Fatima Statue would like to reach out to our

The rich suffer, want and go hungry, but those who seek the Lord lack
no blessing.
~Psalm 34:11
When the Lord appears, we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he
~1 John 3:2
In today’s Gospel we hear Jesus say: “Many are invited, but
few are chosen.”

LADIES MONTH AT C.R.O.S.S. has been extended for
October. Those who donated were very generous! The number of
individuals who donated was very low. We have “ladies day at the
car wash” or “Ladies day at the races”. LADIES MONTH AT
CROSS will continue throughout October. Provide an item which
makes a lady feel special. It could be a “skin softener, a body wash,
a hair product, a cologne or body spray”. You may use one of these
items daily without a second thought. For the CROSS recipients, it
probably would be a very special treat. When your purchase your
favorite beauty item, purchase two. One for yourself and one for a
donations will be picked up weekly with the last day being Sunday October 26th. Thank you.
C.R.O.S.S. There is always a need at CROSS to help stock their
shelves with food for local families. Peanut butter, tuna fish, cereal,
pasta, jarred sauce, etc.
Thank you so much for helping the Crafty Ladies
have a successful weekend of sales!! This was the
most profitable sale yet and the money goes
towards that dreadful debt! Thank you also, to
everyone who helped with the setup, tear down
and sale. And an extra big thank you to those who
brought all of those delicious baked goods (we
sold 30 loaves of different types of bread and
could have sold more !!!!!!!) and wonderful crafts.
We appreciate everyone and couldn’t have had a
successful sale without your help and donations!

Holy Family Prayer Chain
Don't know if you have heard of Holy Family's Prayer
Chain. When a parishioner is ill or wants prayers for
someone else, all they have to do is call Ann Dennis
or Claudia Burton to have the name placed on our
list. Then special parishioners who have volunteered
to call others go into action. Within a short time most in the
parish know about and pray for that person. At this point
we are in need of two volunteers for the Chain. If you are
interested, please call Connie at 577-3881 to get your name
on the list.
Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ, Each October we
celebrate “Respect Life Month,” a time when we reflect
more deeply upon the sanctity of life, from conception
to natural death. We pray for the weak and vulnerable, the unborn and the
elderly, for the innocent in the womb, as well as for the most guilty. We
pray for a spirit of mercy and not vengeance, for an overturning of the death
penalty as we pray also for the victims’ families of violent crime, for
Christ’s peace through His mercy and love to comfort them. We pray for
Christians and minorities throughout the world who suffer from war and
persecution. We pray that Amendment One and other legislative measures
that affirm a “yes to life” will be sustained with your vote for life. In the
darkening clouds of violence, war, and persecution, pray for Christ’s peace
to reign in mercy and love.
Bishop Stika Statement on Amendment One
Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ, One of the great
privileges of living in a democracy is the right of its citizens
to vote. Although the Catholic Church will never identify
itself with any political community or system, we can and
must speak up in support of moral issues. One such issue that we as
Catholics will have an opportunity to vote on November 4th is
Amendment One. This amendment is neither a Republican nor
Democrat issue, but a moral and life issue of greatest magnitude. A yes
vote on Amendment One, a prolife amendment, would neutralize the
extreme interpretation taken by the Tennessee State Supreme Court in
2000 in which they declared that our State Constitution guarantees the
right to an abortion. Passage of this Amendment would restore back to
the voter the “life” decisions that were taken from them by the state
court decision. For this reason, I and my brother Bishops in Nashville
and Memphis wholeheartedly ask for your support for “life” by voting
for “Yes on One” this November 4th.
