Today is Mission Sunday. There will be a second collection for the foreign missions. Thank you, Bro. Phil, for sharing your 47 years of mission experience at the masses last weekend. You helped us all appreciate the sacrifices made by missionaries around the world. I hope we can all pray for the missions and support them financially through this collection.
Thanks to all the generous volunteers who made our SOS guests feel right at home, from the very moment they stepped through the door last Sunday. Each night they enjoyed a meal provided by one of the groups in the parish. I'm glad we can be part of such a creative ministry.
The next planning meeting for the St. Vincent de Paul Society takes place this coming Wednesday evening at 7:00pm in the Duns Scotus room. I was happy to see so many attend the first meeting two weeks ago. If you had signed up but were unable to attend that meeting, please don't hesitate to come to this one. Paul Zbtowski, who spoke at the masses two weeks ago, will be facilitating this meeting. I'm sure we'll be ready to commit to forming a St. Vincent de Paul conference.
I will be attending a meeting of the friars involved in local leadership in Indianapolis from the 21-23rd of October. I will be back in time to join many of you this Friday evening at our annual spaghetti dinner which benefits our Franciscan Outreach program. See the bulletin for more details.
