“If God’s word is spoken by a priest who is filled with the fire of
charity—the fire of love of God and neighbor—it will wound
vices, kill sins, convert sinners, and work wonders.”
-St. Anthony Mary Claret(1807-1870), Founder of the Claretian Order,
Feast Day October 24
Our Lady of Fatima Statue would like to reach out to our
parishioners by spending some prayer time in your home.
The statue will be brought to your home with a 9-day
novena. Please contact Luci Carleton, 573-0336.
Behold, the eyes of the Lord are on those who fear him, who hope in his
merciful love, to rescue their souls from death, to keep them alive in
~Psalm 33:18-19
The Son of Man has come to give his life as a ransom for many.
~Mark 10:45
In the Gospel today Jesus says: “Repay to Caesar what
belongs to Caesar and to God what belongs to God.” When
God is the center of our lives there is no problem with
giving others their due.
Through your gift to the Society of St. Vincent de Paul you
are helping your neighbor who is hungry, hopeless and
frightened to know that they belong to God.

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.
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.
Annually on the first Sunday of
November, members of Immaculate
Conception and Holy Ghost parishes
gather at Calvary Cemetery at 2000
Martin Luther King Boulevard in East Knoxville to
recite the Rosary together for the eternal rest of all
those buried there and for all the faithful departed.
All are invited to participate in this important
community tradition – especially those with
relatives or friends buried at Calvary. Please join
our annual Rosary Procession at Calvary Cemetery
on Sunday, November 2, at 2:00 p.m.
A Big “Thank You” to Eddy Collins
Last week a water leak appeared in the roof at the Family Life
Center kitchen. Eddy and his crew came to the Rescue and
repaired the leak in the roof. Also, last year, Eddy required
gutters and down spout on the church, Rectory and Pavilion
at no cost to the parish. We appreciate your generosity Eddy.
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.
