The Circle of Faith

 


 Welcome!

A warm and blessed welcome to the Circle of Faith Catholic Community website! Here you'll find information about our linkage, our parishes, our history, our schedules, and our ministries... Even the bulletins and newsletters, but there's so much more! We want this website to help us share our faith with each other in many ways. May God bless you! Please visit us often! 

RESPECT LIFE MONTH

Each October Catholics in the United States celebrate Respect Life Month, and the first Sunday of October is observed as Respect Life Sunday. As Catholics, we are called to cherish, defend and protect those who are most vulnerable, from the beginning of life to its end, and at every point in between. Let us reflect more deeply on the dignity of every life. St. James will have special handouts for Respect Life as you leave Mass this weekend.

A Prayer for Life

Father and Maker of all,
You adorn all creation with splendor and beauty, and fashion human lives in your image and likeness.
Awaken in every heart, reverence for the work of your hands, and renew among your people a readiness to nurture and sustain
your precious gift of life. Grant this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with You in the unity of the Holy Spirit, God forever and ever. Amen


WORLD MISSION SUNDAY

On October 19 - 20 we observe World Mission Sunday, in what Pope Francis has declared a special “Extraordinary Missionary Month.” We are called by baptism to be part of the Church’s missionary efforts, through prayer, self-sacrifice and support of missionary vocations. Remembering that we are baptized and sent as a Universal Church of Christ, we can pray for the Church’s worldwide missionary work, and offer financial help through The Propagation of the Faith, The Church in Latin America, and The Church in Eastern Europe. Please use the envelopes that have been provided for this second collection.

SATURDAY MASS RETURNING TO ST. JOSEPH

Fr. Santy, along with St .Joseph Pastoral Council is excited to announce the return of a Saturday 4pm Mass starting November 2, 2019. Additionally, Fr Santy will be available to hear Confession prior to Mass starting at 3pm. We are blessed to be able to add another Mass for St Joseph’s Parish but we sure could use some extra volunteers to serve on ministries. In order to schedule required help, there will be Mass Time Availability sheets in the back of church for Lectors, Servers, Eucharistic Ministers and Ushers. Please use these sheets to indicate your Mass time availability. This will help with the new scheduling requirements.

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name, thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us, and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen
