    12 CHURCH TEACHINGS that explain the importance and need to spend a weekly hour with Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament. 

    9.)  The best time you spend on earth is with your Best Friend, Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament!  "How great is the value of converse with Christ (in the Blessed Sacrament), for there is nothing more consoling on earth, nothing more efficacious for advancing  along the road of holiness."   (Art. 70)  Pope Paul VI, Mysterium Fidei.
     
    10.)  Just as you can't be exposed to the sun without receiving its rays, neither can you come to Jesus exposed in the Blessed Sacrament without receiving the divine rays of His grace, His Love, His peace.  “Christ is truly the Emmanuel, that is, ‘God with us.’   Day and night He is in  our midst, He dwells with us full of grace and truth.”
    (Art. 68) Pope Paul VI, Mysterium Fidei.

  •   Pastoral Council News

    PASTORAL COUNCIL MEETING

    The next regular meeting for the Pastoral Council of St. Gregory the Great will be held at
    6:30 pm, 27 November 2017 in Mary's House
    (Senior Center).  This is an open meeting and all parishioner are welcome to attend. 
    The meeting will stress the need to promote our parish, begin planning the recruitment of new members in May and the election of officers also in May.  


    PASTORAL COUNCIL SUPPORT 

    We will enter into a new Pastoral Council calendar year and need to work on our purpose and resolve for the year.  We serve the parish as an advisory group to Fr. Rudy with a primary focus to assist and support ministries in whichever way we can. The ultimate goal of parish life is to take a fresh look at its many aspects and shape them in ways that will bring people closer to the Lord.

    PROMOTE OUR PARISH

       We must promote our parish, build-up our image in a way that will attract new parishioners and/or increase attendance. Attracting young parents could have the potential of a positive effect on school enrollments. One way is by word-of-mouth and another way would be to submit information about our parish to Today's Catholic for publication.

    Eucharistic Apostles of the Divine Mercy

    “Mercy is love that seeks to lessen
    the misery of others”

    I feel certain that my mission will not come to an end upon my death, but will begin.  O doubting souls, I will draw aside for you the veils of heaven to convince you of God's goodness so that you will no longer continue to wound with your distrust the sweetest Heart of Jesus.  God is Love and Mercy.  (Diary of St. Faustina, 281)
     
    For study:  Sunday, Nov 5 and Nov 19,
    2:30 p.m., Mary’s House (Senior Center, 720 Beryl).  

    All that is needed is a Bible, Catechism of the Catholic Church and The Diary of St. Faustina, “Divine Mercy in My Soul”.
     
    Spiritual Works: Saturday, Nov 11 and Nov 25, 11:00 a.m. in the Adoration Chapel.   We pray for the sick and the dying.  On the 2nd Saturday we also pray for Pro-life causes.
