Message From Father Anthony: This weekend we celebrate Catechetical Sunday, which allows us to emphasize the privilege and duty of each baptized person to witness to the gospel and hand on our faith. I want to look at the catechesis of Pope Francis, who has used much of his papacy to catechize about mercy. Our Pope, through his actions and words, repeatedly demands that we reevaluate our understanding of how we receive and show mercy; he even uses his papal motto as a form of catechesis: Miserando atque eligendo. This motto roughly translates to, “receiving needed mercy yet still chosen”. The phrase is originally in reference to Jesus calling St. Matthew to be an apostle despite being a tax collector. Subsequently for Pope Francis it is used in reference to God using him, despite his own need for mercy. WE ELCOME TO HOLY SPIRIT! Our parish family invites all of its members to participate fully in our spiritual and social life. New to the area? Welcome! Blue Registration Forms are available in the Narthex and parish office. Mark your calendar! Holy Spirit is having a MINISTRY FAIR the weekend of Sept 30/Oct 1. Look for a letter in the mail with the details soon. 7TH GRADE STUDENT & PARENT MEETING: There will be a meeting for 7th grade students and their parents this Sunday at 6pm in the Church. This is an important meeting! ALL 7th grade students and at least one parent or guardian MUST attend. CONFIRMATION CANDIDATES (9th Grade) will meet this Sunday afternoon from 4:00-5:30pm for interviews. All candidates MUST attend. Thank you for your generous support in last week’s Peter’s Pence Collection! Our contributions will be combined with those from our brothers and sisters around the world to help Pope Francis provide essential relief to people in need. If you missed the collection, it is not too late to give. Visit www.usccb.org/nationalcollections and click on “How to Give” on the left. Next week there will be a second collection for RELIGIOUS EDUCATION. Please give generously in support of our parish’s educational programs. RCIA INQUIRY SESSIONS: Our inquiry sessions have just begun, but we are still waiting for YOU! Are you searching for a deeper relationship with God? A sense of belonging in a faith community? A greater fulfillment of your mission in life? It is not too late to join us on Wednesdays at 7:00pm! You do not have to journey alone. If you, a friend, or family is interested in joining the Catholic Church or would like to find out more about Catholic beliefs and practices, please call the church office at 717-838-3369, or call Josette Houri at 717-838-4982. DIOCESAN WOMEN’S CONFERENCE: The 3rd Annual Diocesan Women’s Conference will be held Saturday, Oct 14, 2017, at Bishop McDevitt High School. The theme is “Lead All Souls to Heaven”: Mary’s Message to Us from Fatima and includes keynote speaker Susan Brinkmann, workshops, Mass with Bishop Gainer, and much more. Register online at www.hbgdiocese.org/women. Brochures for paper registration are also available in the Narthex and online.
From the ADORATION CHAPEL: Jesus Himself said, “His Heart in the Blessed Sacrament is a fountain flowing with living waters" and cried out for everyone to come to Him. (Jn 7:38) Each time we come to Him we are sanctified. Only when we drink of the living waters are we able to grow in love for Jesus and receive the strength necessary to become a true disciple for Him and witness this love to others. St. Teresa of Calcutta said: Jesus has made Himself the bread of life to give us life. Night and day, He is there. If you really want to grow in love, come back to that hour of adoration. Contact Bart Kaminski at 717-838-3369, x3. God Bless!
