WE ARE LOCATED NEXT TO THE PARISH OFFICE! HOURS: Mon to Thurs: 10am to 3pm Faith Formation Office is looking for families to help put the Thanksgiving Baskets together, for the poor and needy of our Parish, this Monday evening at 6PM in St. Michael’s Hall. A HUGE THANK YOU to Donal and the choir for their beautiful music and help in getting all the food donations for the needy of our Parish.

There are NO Faith Formation Sessions on Sunday, November 27th & Sunday, Dec. 4th.

Our Lord Jesus Christ the King November 20, 2011 “I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink.” — Matthew 25:35

THE SHEPHERD KING The job of shepherd and the job of king couldn’t be more different from each other. Shepherds are on the lowest rung of society, kings are at the top. But God says, through the prophet Ezekiel, that the Messiah will lead in a way very different from earthly authorities who lord it over their people and cause harm with their poor leadership. Our King takes on the job himself. Christ, like a shepherd, will give rest, seek out the lost, bring back the strayed and scattered ones. He will heal the wounded and bind up the injured. He does not delegate, but will “shepherd them rightly.” We have a king who cares for us and who is not afraid to “judge between one sheep and another” (Ezekiel 34:17). © Copyright, J. S. Paluch Co.

Thank You to all of the Youth and their families who helped in passing out food to the homeless with Joy Ministries on Nov. 18th. A BIG thank you to all of you who donated food to this worthy cause, it was greatly appreciated. Please continue to watch the bulletin for future opportunities to help this wonderful ministry. God Bless You!!

The Faith Formation Staff pray that you and your family have a very blessed Thanksgiving. We are especially grateful to all of our catechists and volunteers who donate so much of their time, talent and treasure to help the children and youth grow in a closer relationship with Jesus Christ.

Nuestro Señor Jesucristo Rey del Universo 20 de noviembre de 2011 “Estuve hambriento y me dieron de comer, sediento y me dieron de beber”. — Mateo 25:35 LOS SANTOS Y OTRAS OBSERVANCIAS Domingo: Nuestro Señor Jesucristo, Rey del Universo Lunes: La Presentación de la Santísima Virgen María Martes: Santa Cecilia Miércoles: San Clemente I; San Columbano; Beato Miguel Agustín Pro Jueves: San Andrés Dung-Lac y compañeros Día de Acción de Gracias Viernes: Santa Catalina de Alexandria


icen que el agradecimiento es la memoria del corazón. Pero también es la esperanza del corazón. Un corazón agradecido está atento a todo lo bueno que va a venir. Aunque noviembre parezca contradictorio–se conmemora la muerte, se espera la venida de Cristo, se habla del fin de los tiempos, y se celebra el Día de Acción de Gracias–eso es sólo la superficie. La realidad es que nada de esto es contradictorio. Se recuerda todo lo bueno y se da gracias por ello y, como se espera todo lo bueno–de la otra orilla de la muerte/vida, también se da gracias por ello. Noviembre es una invitación a tener un corazón muy despierto: consiente plenamente del pasado y vigilante a la venida del tiempo de la venida final. El agradecimiento impulsa a una acción inspirada en el bien; la vigilancia inspira a una acción inspirada en la urgencia de estar preparados. En ambos casos, la llamada es a dar frutos de vida. En ambos casos, es una llamada a la felicidad plena de los bienaventurados. ©Nuestra Parroquia ¡FELIZ DÍA DE ACCIÓN DE GRACIAS A TODA NUESTRA COMUNIDAD PARROQUIAL! La Misa será el 24 de noviembre a las 8:30am. Únete a nuestra Familia Parroquial en la Misa de Acción de Gracias. También pueden traer los panes y bebidas que van a servir en su Cena ese día para que sean bendecidos en la Misa. (NO tendremos Misa de 7:00am este día)


Hoy día se llevará a cabo la Colecta que ayuda a luchar contra las raíces de la pobreza. Luche contra la pobreza en América. Defienda la dignidad humana. Contribuya a la Colecta de CCHD.

La oficina parroquial estará cerrada desde el miércoles, 23 de noviembre a las 12:00md y re-abrirá el lunes, 28 de noviembre a las 9:00am.   BAZAR DE NAVIDAD PARA NIÑOS 4 de diciembre, 2011 8:30am - 3:00pm - Salón St. Michael ¡¡Buenos regalos a bajo precio!!

El Comité de Ministerios de Vida estará llevando a cabo la colecta anual de “Shoeboxes for Seniors”, el fin de semana del 17/18 de diciembre. Por su generosidad, residentes de Rocky Creek Retirement Center recibirán la sorpresa el día de Navidad con el regalo de estas cajas. Gracias por compartir el amor de Dios con otros y por bendecir a una persona de edad avanzada esta Navidad.

FIESTA DE LA FE La misa no termina El sacerdote nos saluda una vez más, como nos saludó al principio. Nos da la bendición y luego, el sacerdote o diácono despide a la asamblea con una encomienda muy propia, ir en paz. La misa no se da por concluida, como quien rompe lo sagrado y lo separa de lo no-sagrado. Es un envío pleno que hace el ministro ordenado para que vayamos al mundo, a nuestra vida diaria a ser el pan que hemos partido y compartido; a ser el vino alegre que lleva a la vida a los ambientes más distantes que, a veces, son los nuestros. La asamblea ha de ir animada por la Palabra de Dios que se le ha proclamado a ser la palabra viva de Dios en medio del pueblo mismo. Vamos fortalecidos por la comunidad eclesial con la que nos hemos hecho uno en comunión y con quienes hemos compartido de un mismo pan; vamos a ser comunidad en nuestros barrios y lugares de trabajo, a compartir nuestro pan con quien tiene hambre y a vivir la comunión aún por encima de nuestra diversidad de pensamiento. Somos enviados a transformar el mundo, a “cristificarlo”, a hacer que sea como Cristo, a quien hemos recibido en la comunión. —Miguel Arias, © Copyright, J. S. Paluch Co.

NUESTRA CULTURA La solidaridad con los necesitados a nuestro alrededor es un rasgo muy característico de la cultura hispana, donde siempre se guarda pan para quien pueda no tener, y donde las fuerzas se movilizan fácilmente ante cualquier necesidad.

Un pensamiento: "La celebración de la Santa Misa tiene tanto valor como la muerte de Jesús en la Cruz." Santo Tomas de Aquino

22 de noviembre ♦ Santa Cecilia Tenemos poca información sobre esta mártir que vivió en Roma entre los siglos II y III. Parece ser que pertenecía a una familia acomodada e hizo generosas donaciones a la iglesia. Fue mártir y está enterada en una de las catacumbas romanas. Es patrona de la música. ¿Qué talentos podrías tú poner al servicio de la comunidad? Sabías que... Los seguidores de Jesús fueron llamados "cristianos" recién desde el año 43 en la evangelización de Antioquía, cuando los paganos empezaron a identificarlos despectivamente con ese nombre por ser seguidores de Cristo, dejando la expresión de "nazarenos" para referirse a ellos.
