YOUTH CORNER It's Festival Week! And boy has everyone been busy preparing. Let's
pray for favorable weather and a huge crowd to come and enjoy the food and fun. We sure hope you were able to come enjoy the Diocesan 50th Celebration Mass last Sunday. It was a sight to see. If you ordered a Youth Group T-Shirt and have not picked it up yet, please look for Phyllis and/or myself this weekend. We should have the shirts with us. Thanks to Brandi Braden and others for hosting last week's Huddle Up after the game. We will have our Diocesan's 1st monthly "XLT" meeting on Tuesday 10-25 beginning at 7:00 p.m. at the Sacred Heart Cathedral. This is a new Youth Program that we are trying to get going in the San Angelo Diocese. We have a vision of each parish in our San Angelo Area (including Wall) to host an XLT Meeting. We'd love to see as many students as possible come check it out to see the format and spend a little time in praise and worship music and exalting our Lord. Please see the attached flyer for more information. Our House painting project is coming soon. We are having to do a little preparation on this and will get dates out to everyone soon. For any questions or comments, please contact Phyllis or myself.

THANK YOU’S: St. Ambrose Parish, Family and friends — Words cannot express our gratitude for all the love and support we, the Olen Weishuhn family, were given in the last weeks! We would like to thank Fr. Tom Barley, Fr. Chinna and Deacon Allan Lange for the beautiful Rosary and Funeral Mass. The choir’s contribution with the music was exactly what Olen loved. Our family has received so many wonderful comments on the Mass, the music and the outstanding lunch — it makes you realize how very fortunate we are to be a part of the St. Ambrose Church and Wall community! Olen’s wish was to “sell tickets at the Fall Festival” and greet all his old friends and maybe some new ones! We know he will be there with us! God bless each & every one! ~ The Olen Weishuhn Family It was quite an honor to be chosen “Pioneers of the Faith” from St. Ambrose Parish. The dinner Saturday night and especially the Sunday Mass at the coliseum were truly awesome. Thanks again for choosing us to represent St. Ambrose. This parish is very special. God bless everyone. ~ Earl & Mary Ann Halfmann
30th Sunday in Ordinary Time
Key Passage: [Jesus] said to him “’You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ This is the greatest and first commandment. And a second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’” (Matthew 22:37-39) Adult: In a practical sense, what is one thing that would change in your life if you loved your neighbor as yourself? Child: Why is it hard sometimes to love your neighbor? Reprinted with persission from Heritage of Faith, Published by Twenty-Third Publications.
