FROM DEACON TOM LEONARD

I am pleased to announce that this fall we will be offering the Bp. Barron DVD Course entitled, “Jesus Christ: Priest, Prophet, & King”.

“Jesus is the Anointed One – the ultimate priest, prophet and king foreshadowed throughout the Hebrew Scriptures. Join us as we deepen our relationship with Jesus Christ through Bp. Robert Barron’s new DVD-based Study Program: Jesus Christ: Priest, Prophet, King.

Explore the biblical archetypes of priest, prophet and king and see how Jesus is the ultimate fulfillment of each one. Throughout this experience, you will better understand who Jesus really is and also realize your own priestly, prophetic and kingly mission.” (from DVD jacket).

This series will be offered at two different times: Wednesdays 2:00 PM-3:30 PM beginning Sep 25th and Saturdays 5:00 PM-6:00 PM beginning Oct 5th. The highly recommended Student Study Guide is $22.00 (includes shipping). It will not be required by those joining the Family Faith Formation group on Saturday, due to the truncated teaching time. Please register by calling the parish office. As usual, please make your $22.00 check out to St. Kateri Parish.

I am excited and hope to see you all, again, for this series.

AMERICAN AUTUMN TRAVEL REVIEW

We were hot and we were cold; we laughed and we cried; we were awake early and we had a lot of food. We had a great time. The monuments, memorials and museums were inspiring and the battlefields and cemetery gave us a moment to remember our brave men and women.

The food was plentiful and the restaurants were historic with a touch of entertainment. We met some new friends and we connected more deeply with old friends. We’re happy we went; we’re glad to be home.

Sites we visited: Gettysburg, The Basilica of the Immaculate Conception, The Shrine of Pope John Paul II, The Iwo Jima Memorial, Arlington National Cemetery, The US Naval Academy, and Pittsburgh. Consider joining us on our next trip!

ST. KATERI PARISH GIFT AND BOOK SHOP NEWS

You have probably noticed the items laid out by the Gift Shop in Resurrection Hall. Don't worry...it's not a fire sale...but it is a Clearance Sale! People have donated many used religious items to our store and we have been overloaded. The items are being sold for a "free will" offering since many articles have been difficult to price. So use your best judgment and/or donate what you can afford. We would like to see the items put to good use.

Your donations can be placed in the gold boxes or taken into the Gift Shop. All proceeds will benefit St. Kateri Parish and the Red Cloud Indian School. Thanks for your donated items and offering.

DO YOU HAVE A FAVORITE HALLOWEEN TREAT? HERSHEY BARS? KIT KAT? M & M’s? 

Each year the seminary community opens their doors and their hearts to over 2,000 children from the surrounding Detroit neighborhood so that the kids can have a fun and safe place to play games and trick-or-treat. But they need your help to make this year a success! They are asking for donations of Halloween candy that will then be passed out to the many kids. If you are willing to participate in this important ministry by donating bags of candy please place them in the baskets in the church vestibule or to the parish office. Seminarians, priests and lay ministers of the Seminary also provide prayers and counseling to the many parents, grandparents, relatives and friends accompanying the children. ** A driver is also needed on the morning of Monday, October 28th to deliver our donations to the Seminary. The seminarians will gladly unload your vehicle upon your arrival. Call the parish office if you are available to help.**

NEXT WEEKEND ON THE RISE BAKERY

October 19th & 20th They offer a large selection of breads, rolls, cookies, muffins and other bakery items. We will need people to assist in this activity. Please call the parish office to sign up. 313-336-3227

Dear Families of St. Kateri Tekakwitha,

We at Nativity of Our Lord Parish wish to thank you for the school supplies and back packs that were donated to the children at Nativity and neighborhood families in our Christian Service programs. With school funding being cut and school supply lists getting bigger for each student, we are grateful for your help. About 100 students were sent off to school with many of the much needed supplies thanks to you.

Again, thank you for your assistance and support, God’s Blessings for your help.

Yours in Christ,

Reverend Raymond Stadmeyer, OFM-Cap
