Thirty Third Sunday in Ordinary Time

This Weeks Readings: Proverbs 31.10-13, 16-18, 20, 26, 28-31; Psalm 128; 1 Thessalonians 5.1-6; Matthew 25.14-30.

The wise person is the one who chooses prudently, invests sensibly, but also risks comfort and approval for the good of others. We are gifted with untapped resources and talents we don't always recognize. Let us not be hoarders but spend-thrifts in the work of the Lord. We will be held accountable for how we have spent our time, talent, and treasure. Looking into our own lives to discover the many experiences of God's generosity, let us in turn have the courage to extend that generosity to others.

Next Week's Readings: Ezekiel 34.11-12, 15-17; Psalm 23; 1 Corinthians 15.2026, 28; Matthew 25.31-46.

We're here to Serve

Greeting people at the door, helping somebody to their seat, receiving and collecting Sunday offerings, or comforting somebody who might be in distress – these are just some of the ways in which ushers serve a vital part of our Sunday liturgy They work as a team and have as their priority the safety and the good order of the congregation as it gathers to worship the Lord in the liturgy of the Eucharist.

Without our ushers, the harmony, the reverence, the beauty of our liturgy would somehow be lacking.  To all the ushers who have been serving faithfully over the years, I want to extend gratitude and appreciation.  Your presence and your service is an integral part of our Sunday experience. 

Right now, the usher ministry is in great need of new members.  Many ushers have moved away or have transferred over to the Blessed Frederic Ozanam Parish.  This has left large gaps in this important ministry, particularly as we face the additional masses of the Christmas season.  So, I appeal to you to pray about and think about becoming an usher.  

If you would like more information, approach an usher after Mass and they would be happy to tell you more about this holy ministry.  There is a sign-up sheet in the parish office that we ask you fill out once you are ready to take the step in joining the usher ministry. Once you have provided your volunteer information at the office, you will be contacted by our Usher Coordinator.  To all those who take the step in giving of themselves, I look forward to meeting you.  

Fr. Dominic
