October 1– 2nd Annual St. Pascal Autumn Fest

October 15– Sacrament of the Sick

WHAT DO I DO WITH THIS?????

One of the things that is distinctive about Catholicism is that we use “things” to help us grasp some parts of our faith. So

for instance, we have statues of Jesus, Mary, Joseph and the saints. This function is very similar to us, just as the family

pictures we keep in our wallet or purse. When praying, sometimes it helps to have words given to us rather than making up

our own, so we use prayer books, or we use a rosary. We wear medals and scapula to remind us of our need to invoke the

protection of the saints. These items, because of what they remind us of, are important. But like everything else in this

world, they can break or wear out or just fall apart.

Once in a while, someone will present me with a bag of broken religious items and ask me to do something with them.

Well, now is the time to clean out those drawers and find those religious items that are no longer usable. On Sunday, October

23 at 2 PM by the Senior Center, we will retire these items by burying them in the ground. This is a proper and respectful

way to dispose of such items. There are containers at the doors of the church for these items. Please bring them in as

much in advance as possible. Items might include broken rosaries, old prayer books, Bibles, medals or statues. We would

ask that you NOT bring things like novena cards. Please plan on joining us for this event at 2 PM and then stay for the Respect

Life Holy Hour at 2:30 PM in the church.

KEEPING KIDS SAFE

Don’t forget the new curfew hours are in effect! Children under 12 are to be indoors after 8:30 PM, Sunday through Thursday

and at 9 PM on Friday and Saturday. Those between 12 and 16 have a curfew at 10 PM Sunday through Thursday and

11 PM on Friday and Saturday. Curfew ends at 6 AM the following day. Some exceptions are children with a parent or

guardian; on the sidewalk by their own house; attending school, religious or recreational activities supervised by adults;

work, or an emergency. Let’s keep our kids safe and out of trouble!

MONEY IN YOUR POCKET

The Saint Pascal Thanksgiving Raffle will be held Sunday, November 20 at 2 PM. The prizes total $25,000 cash! Top prize

is $10,000! Forty-four cash prizes will be awarded. We will sell only 4000 tickets. But between us, we usually sell only

about 2000. That means you have an approximate 1 in 50 chance of winning something. And with the markets the way

they are, it might be a safer investment! But seriously, it definitely WILL be a great investment in our parish. So buy your

tickets, sell your tickets, whatever you can do will be tremendously appreciated.

WORDS OF THE WISE TO THE WISE

I recently ran across an article from last April about the death of the world’s oldest man, Walter Breuning, who died at the

age of 114. I have kept a clipping from the Sun-Times of September 22, 2010, reporting his last birthday. In it Mr. Bruening

is quoted as saying that people may enjoy life but they can’t be content without a belief or faith. And he said, “With all

the hatred in this world, in this good world, let us be kind to one another.” Words to live by.

October 23 — Respect Life Holy Hour

St Pascal will hold a pet blessing on Sunday, October 2nd at

1:30 PM in the Dakin Street Parking Lot.

Saint Francis, born in a town of

Assisi in Italy in 1182, is the

patron saint of those who care

for plants and animals. His feast

day is celebrated October 4th.

SACRAMENT OF THE SICK——

Saturday, October 15 @

4:00 PM Mass

"Is any among you sick? Let him call for the presbyters of the

Church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in

the name of the Lord; and the prayer of faith will save the sick

man, and the Lord will raise him up; and if he has committed

sins, he will be forgiven" (Jas 5:14-15).

If you have a chronic or terminal illness, are facing serious surgery,

or are aging, you are encouraged to receive the Sacrament

of the Anointing of the Sick at the 4 PM Mass on Saturday,

October 15th. The special grace of this sacrament has as

its effects:

the uniting of the sick person to the passion of

Christ, for his own good and that of the whole Church;

the strengthening, peace, and courage to endure in

a Christian manner the sufferings of illness or old

age;

the forgiveness of sins, if the sick person was not

able to obtain it through the sacrament of Penance;

the restoration of health, if it is conducive to the

salvation of his soul;

the preparation for passing over to eternal life.

If you are in need of this sacrament, please join us at the 4 PM

Mass on October 15. Pews will be reserved at the front of the

church. We ask that a pew be left empty between each pew for

the sick, so the priests can move freely to anoint everyone. If

you have any questions, or are planning to be anointed, please

call the rectory at 725-7641, so we will have some idea how

many pews to reserve.

There will be a member of Troop 815

in Room 100 after Masses on October 2 for

Spaghetti Dinner tickets and Popcorn sale.

Presale Spaghetti Dinner tickets are $7 for adults and

$4 for children 3-8 yrs.

Thank you for your support!!

SOCIETY OF ST. VINCENT DE PAUL

SAINT PASCAL CONFERENCE

THANK YOU! The Bundle Days clothing drive

last month was a success because of your

generous donations. A special THANKS to

Knights of Columbus, Mater Christi Council, for the donation

of clothing and kitchenware not sold at their Rummage

Sale. The SVDP trailer was filled to near capacity, and the

merchandise was in the SVDP warehouse the following

Monday. By now, the clothing and all the utensils, etc.,

have been distributed to the SVDP stores and to the distribution

centers for the victims of the recent hurricanes that

hit the East Coast and the Gulf of Mexico. Be assured that

that the recipients of the clothing and other supplies will be

grateful to you for bringing them comfort and hope at a

time they are in most need of support.

St. Pascal’s is certainly a caring faith community.

For this, our SVDP conference also gives

THANKS.

“Keep on doing what you have learned and received

and heard and seen in me. Then the God

of peace will be with you.” (Second reading)

What has God said to you about enriching your

marriage? Take some well deserved time for

just the two of you to deepen your communication,

strengthen your relationship, rekindle your

romance and renew your sacrament by attending the next

Northwest Indiana area on November 4-6, 2011 or January

Spiritual Adoption Baby Shower

Sunday, November 13th Room 100

A primary task for the pro-life movement is to draw society

into deeper reflection about the mystery, wonder and value

of human life. We need to promote an alternative to the

technological outlook which seeks to control and manipulate

birth and death, to reduce nature to "matter", to elevate

having over being, to depersonalize the body and

sexuality, and to replace the criterion of personal dignity

with the criterion of efficiency, functionality and usefulness.

Our task is to call our brothers and sisters' hearts

and minds to wonder and awe. ~Cardinal George Pell,

Archbishop of Sydney, "Mystery of Life Grand Prix Award

Address,” January 17, 2008 U.S. Conference
