Readings.  Gospel: Mark 13:24-32

    This passage in Mark belongs to a style of literature called Apocalyptic, the best know example of which is the Book of Revelation. The Apocalyptic literature of the Bible is the dramatic expression, in fantastic imagery, of belief in God and hope in His ultimate victory of the power that God intervenes in history and changes everything to good.  The intention of the author is not to detail how the world ends, like us he does not know, but in the end time God is present and triumphs over death.


      "Be the change you want the world to change to." Mahatma Gandhi

      We have matched the anonymous donor's $12,500 contribution to St. Cecilia's Church.  Many thanks for everyone's generosity.

      St. Cecilia will have four seats vacant of the parish council board.  Any parishioners interested in being on the parish council, call Fr. O'.  Election take place sometime in January.
     We will be updating our parish directory in January, 2007.  Fill out the form and return it to the rectory.

      The outreach Masses are very positive and successful in reaching out to neighborhoods in the parish.  I would like to do many more in the course of the coming year.  Keep this in mind as an important activity.  This happens only if hosts volunteer their homes.  To date, four families have returned to the parish, and we welcome them into our parish life.
