HELPING THE POOR / AYUDA A LOS POBRES


“Loaves and Fishes”, associated with Catholic Charities, works to assist the poor. We have several members working with this group on a regular basis. They are in need of the following items for distribution to the homeless: small packages of Apple Sauce, Fruit Cocktail and Peanut Butter (these can be purchase at the 99 Cent or Dollar Store). They are also in need of socks. Any of these items can be brought to the church office and we will distribute them to those who minister daily to the poor among us. Thank you.

INTENTIONS OF OUR HOLY FATHER / INTENCIONES DE NUESTRO SANTO PADRE



During the month of November, Pope Francis asks Catholics everywhere to pray that Christians in Asia, bearing witness to the Gospel in word and deed, may promote dialogue, peace, and mutual understanding, especially with those of other religions.


Durante el mes de Noviembre, el Papa Francisco pide a los católicos rezar por los cristianos de Asia, para que, dando testimonio del Evangelio con sus palabras y obras, favorezcan el dialogo, la paz y la comprensión mutua, especialmente con aquellos que pertenecen a otras religiones.

WHAT IS HALLOWEEN? SHOULD CATHOLICS CELEBRATE IT?


There are many customs and celebrations throughout the world that can be seen as pagan, or contrary to what we believe as Catholic Christians. One of these is the annual celebration of Halloween.  Should Catholics be allowed to celebrate it?  The answer is YES.

Let’s look at the word: HALLOWEEN. The basic word is “hallow” which means “holy”. This is followed by “een”, taken from Old English to mean “eve” or “night before”.

So, putting them together, Halloween is the “Eve of all that is holy.”  That is exactly what it is… because it is the night before our celebration of All Saints Day!

We use the word “hallow” when we pray the Our Father and say, “Hallowed be Thy name…”.  Anything that is holy (hallow) can become empty (hollow). See the difference just one letter can make between “hallow” and “hollow”. 

Halloween is an innocent night for children (and some adults) and dressing like a witch, a devil, Cinderella or Buzz Light year.

Halloween, the night before the feast of All Saints, is almost like our celebration of Mardi Gras before Lent (Ash Wednesday)... reminders that what will follow is holy. Let us use it to become the saints we are all called to be. TRICK OR TREAT!

CATECHISM CLASSES / CLASES DE CATECISMO

Our catechism classes began last week and we have an enthusiastic group of students and teachers. We want to say a big THANK YOU to Mr. Jose Torres, our director and all of our wonderful volunteer catechists who are so eager to share the faith with our young students and our older candidates in the preparation for the Sacrament of Confirmation. 

Mr. Torres and his wife, Enriqueta, were so generous in being available for registrations during the month of August. The Torres Family and ALL of our volunteer catechists and assistants are another example of why Cristo Rey is such a special community of faith!

SINGING THE GOSPEL


Today at Cristo Rey's 9 a.m. Mass, the choir sang the gospel reading. As Fr. Michael explains in the video, this is in keeping with St. Augustine's adage, "To sing is to pray twice."
