Each election offers an opportunity for Catholics to put their faith into action ... Too often however politics becomes a contest of powerful interests, partisan attacks, sound bites and media hype. The Church calls for a different kind of political engagement that is shaped by moral convictions of a well-formed conscience, focused on the dignity of every human being, the pursuit of the common good and the protection of the weak and vulnerable.
Bishop Rhoades and bishops nationwide are joining in seven days of prayer and fasting prior to their general assembly in November, where they will make critical decisions regarding the tragedy of clergy abuse.

This weekend: Many good things happening this weekend. Some may have already passed by the time you are reading this bulletin, but it is still worth a comment or two since so many good things are happening, between the two parishes. Sacred Heart had their annual Craft Show this weekend. The Women’s team for Christ Renews His Parish (now titled simply, WELCOME) is being held at Queen of Peace Parish, though with many of our own members involved. The two parishes are sharing the effort these past two years in order to keep the numbers coming.
