Good Tuesday Afternoon!

-Just a quick reminder that Adult Faith Formation will take place tonight in the Parish Center starting at 6:30pm. The Symbolon Series can be found on if you want to preview or catch up on past sessions. We will be discussing episode 5 tonight: “Who is Jesus?” 
-A big thank you to everyone who purchased mums and helped out with the St. Mary School Apple Fest bake sale last weekend – both fundraisers were a big success & helped us raise over $3,000 for the middle school trip to Rome! 
-Finally, some sad news: Pat Antaya passed yesterday. Visitation will be on Saturday morning in the Parish gathering space from 10am-12pm. The Funeral Mass will follow at 12pm on Saturday. There will be a luncheon in the Parish center after the burial. If you can help, please call the parish office to let Mindy know or stay tuned for the signup genius which will go out later today. Please keep Pat and her family in your prayers. 
O Lord Jesus Christ,
open the eyes of my heart,
that I may hear your word
and understand and do your will,
for I am a sojourner upon the earth.
Hide not your commandments from me,
but open my eyes,
that I may perceive the wonders of your law.
Speak unto me the hidden and secret things of your wisdom.
On you do I set my hope, O my God,
that you shall enlighten my mind and understanding with the light of your knowledge,
not only to cherish those things which are written,
but to do them;
that in reading the lives and sayings of the saints
I may not sin,
but that such may serve for my restoration, enlightenment and sanctification, 
for the salvation of my soul,
and the inheritance of life everlasting.
For you are the enlightenment of those who lie in darkness,
and from you comes every good deed and every gift.
—St. John Chrysostom
