Thirty-First Sunday in Ordinary Time—November 3, 2019

Updated: Jan 9, 2020

Dear Friends in Christ:

The Archdiocesan Synod 2020: Grow and Go meeting of delegates was last weekend and it was an amazing experience. I have asked our two delegates, Jill Hale and Shawn Simpson, to write about their experience for all to learn firsthand from our delegates. You can find their article on page 9 of this bulletin. It was a non-stop busy weekend of presentations, small group discussions, and prayer. As the Secretary of the Synod, it was a very powerful experience to see so many faithful and committed Catholics, younger and older, come together to discern a path forward for our local church.

The work now continues as the Synod Office is charged with collating all the materials from the many small groups, synthesizing the material, removing duplications, and then presenting the material to the Synod Preparatory Committee, the members of the Archbishop’s Cabinet, and, of course, to Archbishop Blair. After hearing the various members’ thoughts on the material it will then be in the hands of the Archbishop to write a Pastoral Letter outlining his thoughts and a path forward for our Archdiocesan family of faith. So keep those prayers coming! They are powerful, and they work!

Cheshire Town Wide Interfaith Thanksgiving Meal Project is HAPPENING NOW. As we have done for the last few years, all the houses of worship in the Cheshire community are working together to provide for the families served by the Cheshire Community Food Pantry in preparing their Thanksgiving Day meals.
