Next weekend the second collection is for the Campaign for Human Development. This collection allows the Archdiocese to give grants to various projects in Maryland to help the poor help themselves. Last year a total of $385,000 was given to groups in the Archdiocese of Baltimore working for social Justice. Resurrection contributed $4443.58 to the cause. As we prepare to say Thanks, let us be thankful for the ability to help others.
Also, next weekend there will be over 60 youth and a large support of teens and adults going on a Confirmation Retreat. Please pray for open hearts and minds as these young people ponder God for their future. And bring them all safely home.
On Saturday, we had almost 70 children celebrate their first reconciliation. We hear at Christmas: “A child shall lead them.” May these children lead us back to the Lord through the sacrament of Reconciliation. There will be numerous opportunities for confession for Advent. You will receive a mailing around Thanksgiving detailing times and places.
Fr. Ray is scheduled to have surgery on Wednesday and will be out of commission for a few days. Please keep him in prayer.
