JOURNEY of a
LIFETIME: EXPLORE DOMINICAN
THERE’S an APP (APPLICATION) for THAT Did you know that there are applications for the missal, rosary, stations of the cross, Compendium of the Catholic Church, Catholic prayers, etc.? If you see people in Mass on their IPHONE, don’t think they are text messaging, they are most likely reading the readings of the day and following along with the prayers of the Mass right there on their phone or IPOD.
Please note that parishioners need to use the turnaround out front of the Burkley Center for access to the elevator. Please be mindful of our elderly and handicapped and do NOT park in the turnaround when you come to Mass.

Baskets will be located in the back of the church beginning next weekend, Oct. 31st and Nov. 1st for your donation of food and books. During the weekend of Nov 7th and 8th there will be volunteers accepting monetary donations at the back of the church. Thank you for helping us to help others.
ADVENT MORNING OF REFLECTION
The Church teaches that all Christians, in any state or walk of life, are called to holiness. But what does holiness look like in this time and place? How do we find the paths to holiness that are well-suited to the particular contexts of our daily lives? Come away for a spell to reflect on these important questions as a means of preparing for the coming of Christ anew in our hearts this Advent season. This reflection period is scheduled for Fri., Dec. 4th from 9:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at St. Andrew’s Bryce Eck Activity Center. The facilitator is Fr. Timothy Hayes, pastor of St. Timothy. The cost is $10.oo, which includes lunch. Registration is due to the Office of Ministry Formation (197 E. Gay St., Columbus, OH 43215) by Monday, Nov. 30, 2009. For more information, contact Jean Morris, admn. assistant at 614-241-2544 or email@example.com. An online printable registration form is available on the Office of Ministry Formation website: www.colsdioc.org.
