Rosary Rally

Please join us on Saturday, October 14th at 12 noon for a Rosary Rally on the front lawn of St. Patrick's Church, Aurora. Our rally will be one of nearly 20,000 rosary rallies all across America in honor of the hundredth anniversary of the Miracle of the Sun at Fatima. Together, we will be praying for America, for the Catholic Church, and in   reparation for all the offenses to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, as Our Lady requested in Fatima.

 

Justice, Peace and Human Development Committee.

To help us as Good Shepherd Catholic Community to carry out the social teachings of our faith I would like to form a new Justice, Peace and Human Development Committee.  This new committee with be involved in issues of justice, peace and addressing the root causes of poverty through advocacy and charity helping to alleviate the conditions of poverty and social injustice.  Because of a scheduling conflict the newly formed Justice, Peace and Human Development Committee will meet on Monday October 23 at 7:00p.m. at GSCC Parish Office, Aurora and not on October 19 as previously advertised.  If you would like to be a member of this committee please call Father Bill at 315-364-7197.

Stewardship:

Eternal God, from the very moment of creation you revealed that every good gift has its source in you. You shower your people with abundant blessings and provide for us with your provident care. Help us to use wisely the gifts of the earth that you have bestowed on us. Give us wisdom to use prudently the talents each one has that come from your hand. Afford us the insight to see opportunities to serve in the time you have given to us. May the treasure, talent, and time we possess be placed in service of you for the common good. Amen.
