Thirty-Second Sunday in Ordinary Time - November 12, 2023
Our first reading has some encouraging words, asserting that wisdom can be found by anyone who looks for it. Our second reading uses wisdom to console us, reasoning that if God raised Jesus from the dead, through him we will be brought home as well. The parable in the Gospel tells of the ten virgins who waited for the bridegroom, though only five had the wisdom to bring oil for their lamps. May God's word enlighten us as we too wait faithfully upon the Lord.
The 2023 Catholic Service and Ministry Appeal
The one who does justice will live in the presence of the Lord - Psalm 15
On behalf of the ministries and programs funded by The Catholic Service and Ministry Appeal and those they serve; we thank you for your prayers and continued generosity to the 2023 campaign. May you and your families feel the warmth of God's love and the comfort of His peace at Thanksgiving and always.
Next weekend, Nov. 18/19, will be a collection for the Catholic Campaign for human Development. This collection provides funding to groups whose activities reflect Catholic moral and social teaching on human life and dignity. Your support for this collection brings change to communities across the country and empowers those living in poverty to transform their communities. Twenty-five percent of your contribution stays in your diocese to support the organizations addressing your community's needs for housing, jobs, and educational opportunities and for keeping the lights on during a storm. Please give as you can.
St. Theresa Altar Sodality meeting on Monday, Nov. 6 at 6 PM in the parish hall.

There are business cards at St. Charles that have the web address on them and a QR code if you want to use your phone. The forms need to be turned in by November 18th.
