Work is being done on the HVAC system of the church. They are also installing a generator for the church so that without electricity, the church will be able to maintain some heat so the pipes won’t freeze. If that ever happened, there would be a disaster. Work is also being done in the rectory. The rectory was built in the 1960’s when electricity was cheap. The rectory is all electric: heat, hot water, stove, etc. A gas furnace is being installed to heat at least part of the rectory. A generator is also being installed for the refrigerator, freezer and new gas furnace. All this is to save money in the future. New bay windows will replace the two windows of the rectory that are leaking and not insulated. All this work is being made possible because of your generosity. Thank you. HAPPY ANNIVERSARY to all couples who are celebrating wedding anniversaries in October, November and December 2013. We would like to recognize you and honor you during our next quarterly liturgy for married couples on Sunday, October 13, at the 10:00 a.m. Mass. Please call Arlene & John Martancik at 508-385-3623 and give them your name so you can be honored at Mass.

THE PARISH ADMINISTRAVTIVE ASSISTANT, Happy Whitman, will be on vacation until October 18. Office hours will be limited to 8 a.m. to 1 p.m., MondayFriday.

Our Lady of the Cape

October 5-6, 2013

OCTOBER IS THE MONTH OF THE ROSARY: During October, Our Lady of the Cape Rosary-Making Ministry will have a table set up in the back of the main church to celebrate the month of Our Lady of the Rosary. Please come visit the display to view the works of the rosary ministry and to get inspiration from Our Lady to pray the rosary as she requested. “Pray the Rosary every day in honor of Our Lady of the Rosary to obtain peace in the world...for she alone can save it. When you pray the Rosary, say after each mystery: ‘O Jesus, forgive us our sins, save us from the fires of hell, lead all souls to Heaven, especially those who have most need of your mercy.’ Our Lady of Fatima, July 13, 1917 Our Lady of the Cape’s Rosary-Making Ministry invites all families to pray the rosary together, ideally at home or even via Skype. Pray the rosary with a friend or tune in to EWTN or Catholic TV and join in a worldwide family. Pray for the intentions of Pope Francis, for priests, for vocations, for peace, and for the holy souls in Purgatory. Be an active co-missionary!

RESPECT LIFE SUNDAY, OCTOBER 6: Almighty God, Giver of all that is good, we thank you for the precious gift of human life. For life in the womb, coming from your creative power. For the life of children, making us glad with their freshness and promise. For the life of young people, hoping for a better world. For the life of the handicapped and disabled, teaching us humility. For the life of the elderly, witnessing the ageless values of patience and wisdom. Like Blessed Mary, may we always say yes to your gift. May we defend it and promote it from conception to its natural end and bring us at last to the Father, to eternal life, in Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

BLESSING OF THE ANIMALS will take place this Sunday, October 6, at 1:00 p.m. in front of the Parish Center. Please be sure your pets are properly restrained.

NEW DAY BEREAVEMENT PROGRAM: If you are grieving the loss of a loved one, please consider our 8-week program New Day, designed to help you work through the tasks of grief.

It is not a therapy session. It is an opportunity to journey from grief to healing with others who have also experienced loss. The program will be held on consecutive Sundays from October 13 to December 1, from 1:00-2:30 p.m. in the St. Joan of Arc Parish Center. Registration is necessary. For more information and to register please call 508-240-1119.
