Saint Cecilia Church Saint Mary Church
29th Sunday in Ordinary Time
October 22, 2006
Readings. Gospel: Mark 10:35-45
James the apostle had seen so many people come to Jesus looking for favors and personal requests. James decided he was not going to be left out, and so demanded his terms of discipleship. The only favor Jesus promised James was not Power or Rank which he was seeking, but Suffering and Sharing is cross.
Pray for our parishioners who are ill: Maureen Fulton, Bill Anderson, Gerry Guiney, Stan Dentkos , and Art Garcia.
"We cannot suffer with the Poor when we are not willing to confront those who cause poverty,." Henri Nouwen, Dutch Catholic priest, 1932-1996.
From the Pew
An anonymous donor is granting a matching donation of up to $12,500 to St. Cecilia Parish Building Fund. The parish as of now has raised $5,600. This donation is specifically to be used for the repayment of the debt the parish incurred when the church was remodeled. The final date of this pledge is October 31, 2006, which gives us three weeks to match the generosity of this offer.
