Thank You so much for your Generosity.
Thank You from Haiti
Dear Father Dumont and Parishioners of St. Paul,
Thank you for your continued support providing the teachers
of Fond-des-Blancs with a salary. In a flash back, I vividly remembered
when Fr. Bouello started digging the foundation of the school in 1985.
Some of you in the parish probably remember when Fr. Bouello joined you in
the liturgy and personally gave you a report on the progress of the school.
Fr. Bouello passed away in 1994 but you are faithfully continuing the work
he began. Thank you for your generous donation and enjoy a good year.
This year we were able to send a check of $4900.00
for the support of our sister parish in Haiti. Thank you
all for you generosity.

Holy Family Academy
|Grades K – 3
The children entering grades K- 3 this fall will be attending
Lectionary Catechesis as they have been in the past. The program began on the weekend of September 24/25th. We hope
to be able to offer the program at all Masses but we will have to have
a sufficient number of teachers and monitors to staff the three
Masses. If we do not have enough volunteers we will have to limit the
classes to two Masses.
Grades 4 – 10+
All children in grades 4 – 10 will be attending the new program that
is being initiated in the parish this year. This means that they will
attend classes once a month with their parents and the rest of the
parish. This class will be complimented by work at home which will
enable the children to deepen their understanding of the theme of the
month as well as to process the information on a day to day basis.
Since there will be only one class per month, parents will be
asked to commit this weekend time as a priority to Christian Formation.
The class may be made up by attending the class at St. Peter Parish the
following weekend. The classes will begin in October.
A schedule for
the year has been mailed out to parents who have children
enrolled in Religious Formation. Our first class is Sunday, October 16,
2005 from 11am - 1pm. The January and February Classes are scheduled as follows. January 15, 2006 and February 12, 2006. Both classes will be held from 11:00 – 1:00 pm. If you are new to the
parish or if
you child is just beginning his/her formation, please call the parish
office for a registration blank.
will also meet one extra time per month. The dates for January and February are as follows. January 8 and February 5,
2006. Both will be held at 12:30PM immediately following the 11:30
Mass in Auburn. All students from both parishes will meet together
in Auburn for these meetings.
Holy Family Academy, a private school located in
Manchester, NH, provides a classical education in the Roman Catholic

hear about the Academy’s program of excellence in classical education
and solid formation in the Catholic Faith. Holy Family Academy is

Question of the Week
4th Sunday of Ordinary Time
: (The Power of God’s Love)
: Deut. 18:15-20 (God Will Raise a Prophet)
: 1 Cor. 7:32-35 (Free of Anxieties)
: Mark 1: 21-28 (Teaching with Authority)
Question for Adults: How do my actions and decisions reflect the power of God’s love in the world?
Before taking time to reflect on our own actions it is important to understand,
in as much as we can, what the power of God’s love entails. This is
an area of theology that seems to present great problems for many people.
The assumptions and opinions of many people vary with every generation if
not with every family or individual. Perhaps we could focus our attention
on two points.
The first point in relation to God’s power is mystery.
God’s ways of thinking and acting are definitely above and beyond our ways.
Our way of thinking is too concrete, too earthly, too personal, too vindictive
or vengeful, too narrow. God’s ways are universal, long-suffering,
faithful, forgiving, and above all, other centered. These characteristics
have become familiar to us through the earthly life of Jesus. Without
Jesus we would never have known God’s ways.
A second point in relation to God’s power is that we,
like Jesus are the ones who must relate God’s message to the world.
If God’s ways are far above our ways, we must take great care to follow the
example of Jesus, the one who taught us the way. By following his example
we will be able to reflect the power of God’s love for others. It is
not an easy mission. It challenges us to stretch ourselves in many
ways. However, it is not impossible. Precisely because God has
the power to accomplish what must be done, it is possible for us to live
as Jesus did. How do we live up to our mission of being disciples of Jesus?
Let us take some time to reflect on that this week.
Question for Children? How will I live as a follower of Jesus this week?
Showing God’s love to others is a challenge
for children as well as for adults. We are all human beings and we
all have a tendency to take the easy way out. If we are going to show
kindness, forgiveness, acceptance, thoughtfulness etc. we must do so with
the help of Jesus through prayer. Children could be encouraged to ask Jesus
for help in this matter. Help your child to come up with some concrete
examples of God’s love.

Bereavement Support Groups
Rockingham VNA and Hospice will be running two 6-week bereavement support groups starting Tuesday, January 31st
and concluding March 7, 2006. Once is a General Group supporting
those who have experienced the death of a spouse, sibling, friend
etc. The other is a Motherless Daughter Group open to any women
who has experienced the death of her mother no matter how long it has
been. The general group will meet on Tuesday morning from 10:30
to noon and the Motherless Daughter group will meet Tuesday evenings
from 6 to 7:30 pm. Both groups will meet at the Rockingham VNA
and Hospice office at 137 Epping Road in Exeter, NH.

individuals better understand the grief process and meet others who
have also experienced the death of a loved one. Sharing the pain
can help ease some of the loneliness and feelings of isolation.
