Nazarite Challenge 2020

There is still time to join! Next Meeting Nov. 9, 8:00pm
Follow the 5 commitments of the Nazarite Challenge:
1) Join the community by signing up via e-mail to frmeyer.asp@gmail.com
2) Commit to daily prayer
3) No shaving
4) Abstain from things that lead you to sin

*Numbers 6:5 – Nazarites are men who set themselves apart and dedicate themselves to the Lord in three ways: abstaining, avoiding impurity and not shaving. A simple goal: a challenge for men to dedicate themselves to the Lord.

 

Blessing of Hunters

October 31 & November 1 at all weekend Masses
 
All hunters are welcome to attend Mass and blessing this weekend, in anticipation of the traditional feast day of St. Hubertus (Nov 3), a saint from the 700’s, who is the patron of hunters. St. Hubert, an avid hunter, had a conversion when he realized, while hunting, that God was hunting him, searching for him, desiring him…and it transformed his heart. As always, your CAMO is welcome at Holy Mass.

 

Election Adoration

1:00pm Sunday Nov. 1 until 6:00pm Tuesday, Nov. 3 (Election Day)
While our perpetual adoration ministry will be at the St. Joseph campus in November, we will have Election Adoration at St. John’s, St. Paul’s and St. Martin’s for 53 hours leading up to the closing of the polls. We strongly feel the need to be in constant prayer for our nation in the hours leading up to the election and on election day.
Prayer resources are provided HERE and a rosary will be printed in the Nov. 1 bulletin. Please consider committing to an hour each of the three days.
 
SIGN UP ONLINE or call the parish office.

Everybody wants to help those in need on Thanksgiving Day; here is a way to do just that! Over the past 6 years, the Gobble Wobble 5K has raised & donated over $140,000 to local Food Pantries with help from our sponsors and participants.
Join us this year, for our 7th anniversary of the largest 5K in Dearborn County as we push that number over $160,000! Whether you participate through financial donation only, via our Virtual 5K (completed any day between Nov 1 – Nov 25 on any 5K course you choose) or by coming out for our in-person event, on our NEW loop course in St. Leon, IN (to give ample space to our participants), we THANK YOU for your generous giving and continued support of the #GW5K !
