Quotes from Pope Francis’ Encyclical “Laudato Si” Creatures are not just resources … It is not enough to think of different species merely as potential “resources” to be exploited, while overlooking the fact that they have value. Each year sees the disappearance of thousands of plant/animal species which we will never know, which our children will never see, because they have been lost forever. The great majority become extinct for reasons related to human activity. Because of us, thousands of species will no longer give glory to God by their very existence, nor convey their message to us. We have no such right. (33)

Finance Committee Election … Currently our Finance Committee consists of members elected by the pastor in consultation with the existing committee. This is to ensure we have people with the experience and expertise we need for our deliberations. We will continue to elect some of the committee’s membership in this manner, however, this year we will also elect 2 members to the Finance Committee through a general parish election. Accepting nominations for the election until October 18th at noon. These nomina- tions can be passed into the parish office or placed in an envelope marked “Finance Committee Nomination” and dropped into the collection basket at Mass or slide under the Main Office door. If we have more than two nominations, the names will be published in the bulletin on the weekend of Oct 24-25th and the voting will take place following each Mass on the weekend of Oct 31 – Nov 1. For nominations, clearly indicate: 1) name and contact info of the person being nominated, 2) signatures of three parishioners not related to the nominee. Please note that the Committee currently meets on the last Thursday of the month when considering this ministry.
