                                                          Thirty-Third  Sunday  in Ordinary Time -  November 15, 2020

Talents Given, Talents Returned.  One more Kingdom of Heaven parable today.  God gives in the great hope that these treasures, these talents, these baptismal charisms will bear fruit.  God's gifts are not for burying happens, God says: "Well done.  Come share my joy."

In the coming weeks ahead, we will be reaching out to our parish family members at St. Charles and St. Michael's who cannot attend mass as we currently have it to see what they need or want to keep them connected to our parish family.  We feel it is important to stay together even though we are forced apart by this pandemic. 

Attention Youth, especially our Confirmandi students.  We will be having our Christmas tree cookie stroll this year at St. Charles parish hall on Dec. 20th after Mass from 9 - 10 AM.  Please design a Christmas tree of any size to compete for a cash prize of $100.  Families of our youth are asked to bring 5 dozen cookies of their choice pre-packaged in groups of 3 pieces each to the hall on the Saturday morning before the event.  The trees can be set up that Saturday morning too.  Contact Monica Bochantin for more information at 318-6802.

Next week our special collection is for the Catholic Campaign for Human Development (CCHD).  Your support for this collection brings change to communities across the country and supports those living in poverty to improve their lives.  In addition to making an impact nationally, those living in poverty in our own diocese are empowered through the 25% share of our collection that stays here and is awarded to organizations and groups through our diocesan CCHD local grant program.  Your support for this collection makes a difference for people living in poverty here in southern Illinois and across the United States.  Please prayerfully consider how you can help CCHD this year and give as you are able on Nov. 21/22. If you would like more information about the collection and the people it supports, please visit 

CDA Meeting is scheduled for Monday, Nov. 16 at 7 PM at St. Charles.  

CDA is selling raffle tickets for our Christmas raffle to be held on December 7.  Tickets will be available at the entrance to St. Charles Church, at the bank or from any CDA member.  I will also mail them to you if you call me with your address.  Thank you for your support.  Judy
