Parish Pictorial Directory

    During the past few weeks we have been asking you to sign up for the parish Pictorial Directory.  There are many families who have done so but there are a great many who have not.  This is the last weekend to sign up.     All pictures will be taken here at St. Paul’s in the basement, this week.  You do not have to travel to the photographer’s for the sitting.
     The sittings for the photos are free. You will all receive a free directory and a free family portrait. 
            See you all on the 19th – 21st.

Important Notice to All Parishioners
On Sunday, October 29, 2006, there will be a meeting for all parishioners immediately following the 9:30 Mass. The purpose of the meeting is to discuss the possibility of expanding our small church.  There are several reasons for this consideration, one of which is the growth factor in this area of the state.              It is important that there be as many parishioners as possible at this meeting as it pertains to your church.  If only a small number of people attend the meeting we will have to go with the assumption that those absent are Okay with the idea of going along with whatever is decided. 

We Need You!  We are in need of teachers for the grade levels mentioned above. If we have enough volunteers, we can limit the teaching times to an eight week period.  This is wonderful for everyone.  It is only with the help of parents such as yourselves that we are able to offer this very important ministry in the parish.  If you think you would like to shadow a veteran teacher, please see Lorette after Mass or call the office. 

Christian Formation News

Grades K – High School
    If you have children of age for Religious Education, please remember to pick up a registration form for Religious Education for the coming year.  All children from grade K – the end of Confirmation must register.  The registration does not roll over from one year to the next.  You can pick up a form in the back of the church or you can visit the parish office Monday – Thursday during office hours or give us a call at 483-8481 and ask us to mail you a form.  We would be happy to do this

Grades K- 3  Classes for children in these grades will resume on the weekend of September 16/17.

Grades 4 – 10 +    Last year we initiated a new program for the children in these grade levels.  The classes are held once a month and the program is geared to the entire family. Parents are strongly urged to attend the sessions as there is an adult component to the program which helps them to deepen their knowledge of the faith as well as making it possible for them to compliment the practice of the faith in the home. Our first class will be on Sunday, October 15, 2006.  This year, the classes will be held from 4:00 – 6:00 pm here at St. Paul’s.  A full year’s schedule will be given to you on the first class day.  Please mark your calendars.

Question of the Week
28th  Sunday in Ordinary Time
(Following Christ)
Wisdom 7:7-11 (Priceless Wisdom)
Reading II:
Hebrews 4: 12-13 (The Word of God)
Mark 10: 17-30 (Come Follow Me)

Question for Adults: In what areas of my life am I called to choose the good this week?  As life takes us on a journey, we are always surprised to find ourselves in situations we never would have predicted.  There are many times when we are in a situation we would rather not be in.  These are the times when we must be prepared to choose the good for our sake as well for all we love or are related to in one way of other, be it co-worker, friend, neighbor, etc.  It is almost impossible to predict what will occur in our lives but it is not impossible to stay alert to those situations that will require choices for the good.  

Question for Children? During the month of October this column will focus on the need for safety in the lives of your children.  Please take the time to review it with you children if they are in the appropriate grade level.  This week the lesson is for Grade 6. (Approx.20-25 min.)
The goal of this lesson is to identify help your child identify potentially dangerous or difficult situations and know what to do in such situations. 
    You can help your child by encouraging them to practice what to do and say in difficult situations. 
    Begin by asking your child to name some situations that could be scary, difficult, or possibly dangerous for people their age.
    In your own words, explain that, although most adults care about them and want to help them, there are some adults that make bad choices and do not treat them in a way that respects them.
    Ask your child to name the adults with whom they feel safe and whom they trust as well as places where they feel safe.
    Explain that if they ever feel uncomfortable in a situation, trust the feeling.  Tell them that there are ways of getting out of these situations.  Saying NO as loud as they can; Getting away as quickly as they can;  Tell an adult they trust right away.  If the adult does not listen, keep telling until someone listens.
    Take the time to do the worksheet that corresponds with this lesson.
