Our Food Pantry
    Beginning next week we will begin having a monthly food collection on the 3rd weekend of each month.  This means that we will begin next week.  The reason for this collection is that there are more people coming to our pantry and our shelves are often bare.  St. Peter Parish has been assisting us with a collection three times a year but the shelves quickly empty out.  We will specify the items we most need each month in order to make your shopping easier.  For this month we would need the following:
    Soups,  Canned Fruit,   Canned pasta,
Cereal,   Baked Beans  and instant potatoes.

Electronic Offering:
Our Parish is now able to take your offertory donations through Credit or Debit card.  If you wish to make you contribution in this manner, simply fill in the following and return to our office.

Christian Formation News
Grades K – High School
      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  The children in grades K – 3 attend classes during the weekend liturgies.  We use a Lectionary Catechesis which is based on the Gospel of the week.  Kindergarten students are not obliged to attend regularly.  However, beginning with grade l, students must attend classes on a weekly basis as the program for 1st Communion is a two year program.  It is vital that students continue with their Christian Formation even after their 1st Communion. This year’s program will begin on September 15, 2007

Grades 4 – 10 +   This year’s program for the Generations of Faith begins on Sunday, October 7, 2007 at 4:00 pm.  This program is designed for both parents and children.  Parents are asked to attend the sessions as they have the opportunity to refresh their memory on important matters of the faith .  Please join us on one Sunday per month. Next Month's session is on Nov. 4th.  All Confirmation candidates are expected to attend all sessions.
                     Schedule of Classes

Attention all Parishioners:
Religious Education teachers needed
    Our parish is in great need of men and women who would like to give some of their time to the ministry of Christian Formation.  We are in need of teachers for the younger children as well as the middle school aged program.  If you think you could assist us in this important ministry but you have questions or reservations, please call Lorette at 483-8481 or feel free to send us an e-mail at stpaulcandia@comcast.net
       The commitment for the younger children is simply an 8 week session. 

Question of the Week
28th  Sunday in Ordinary Time  
(The Power of Faith)
Reading 1:
2 Ings 5: 14-17 (Naaman & Elisha)
Reading 2:
2Timothy 2:80-13  (Remaining Faithful)
Luke 17: 11-19 (The Ten Lepers)

Question for Adults: When have I seen the healing presence of God active in my life?  What was my response?  This week’s scripture readings remind us that gratitude is in order whenever we pray or otherwise respond to God’s invitation.  It happens all to often that we forget to thank God for all the good things that happen to us on a daily basis.  How strange it is that we don’t forget to blame him for all the things that go wrong in our lives.  Perhaps we could take the resolution to reflect on the above question more often.   As a people who believe in the Eucharist, we say that we are a people who believe in giving thanks to a God who is worthy of our gratitude.  Do we mean this with our entire being?  

Question for the Teens:     Being grateful for all that is given us and done for us can often be overwhelming.  Sometimes we simply choose to ignore the giver and go on with our lives.  How often do we act or react in this way toward God?  This week you might want to take a little time each day, (sometimes evenings before bed time is the best) to think of the things that were given you or were done for you, either by your parents, your teachers, your friends or even by strangers.  How did you react to their goodness, their sensitivity or their generosity?  Did you show some sign of gratitude or did you simply ignore them?  What could you do to improve this behavior? 
Question for Children?  When a parent or friend reaches out to me when I am sad or sick, what can I do to thank them? Remembering to thank someone for being good to us should be one of the most important things in our lives.  As parents we must teach our children to be grateful for all that is given to them.  In doing so we are also teaching them that it is important to be grateful to God for all his daily gifts.  Perhaps you could take some time to make a list of things that God gives us daily as well as occasionally.
