OUR GUARDIAN ANGELS…….the Marriage and Family Life Office
reminds you that the Feast of the Guardian Angels is commemorated on October
2. Angels abound in
Scripture. There they display God’s generous care, comfort and healing. While
belief in guardian angels is not at the level of dogma, St. Basil says with
confidence, “Beside each believer stands an angel as protector and shepherd
leading him to life” (
of the Animals
To celebrate the feast of Saint Francis of Assisi, the Patron Saint of Animals, S.M.A.C. - St. Mary Adult Catholics will be hosting an animal blessing on the (front) rectory lawn at St. Mary Catholic Church. The Blessing will be celebrated on Saturday, October 4, 2008, at 10:30 am. Members of the community are invited and encouraged to attend! Treats will be provided for our four-legged friends. This event is free and open to the public, but anyone wishing to make a donation can do so; the proceeds will support a pet-friendly local charity. For more information contact: email@example.com. Lord, make me an instrument of thy peace. Where there is hatred, let me sow love. - St. Francis of Assisi.
Special thanks go out to Bob Dolder, the 4 S Club, and all the volunteers who helped with the golf outing last Sunday. Beautiful weather and a great spirit enlivened the whole day.
The SSCM Food Pantry got a wonderful response the weekend they took up a collection at the doors of our church after mass last month. St. Mary’s parishioners contributed just over $1500 to help feed people in the south side. On some Tuesday mornings, a truckload of food is delivered to the pantry from the mid-Ohio Food Bank. If you can help stock the shelves, please call Father Thomas to volunteer. There are both light and heavy duties. The Food Pantry is open the 2nd to the last Saturday each month from 12:00 to 1:30.
