What a great favor God does to those he places
in the company of good people!
~ St. Teresa of Avila
November is dedicated to Holy Souls.
During this month when we celebrate All Saints and All Souls days, consider coming to spend a morning with the four St. Teresas: St. Teresa of Calcutta, St. Teresa of Avila, St. Therese of Lisieux, and St. Teresa Benedicta of the Cross (Edith Stein). Join Corinne Cathcart in the Social Hall as she “opens a window” into the stories of the holy lives of these women through art, prayer, and meditation. You will want to invite your mothers, sisters, aunts, daughters, cousins, neighbors, and friends to this morning of community and connection, as we reflect on the lives of these four women and how their lives might inform our own living.
Join in the good company of good women and let the four Teresas join you on your journey!

October 21 at 10:00 am and 5:30 join Lyn Pajk at the Nature Center for prayer and a song before heading out to the trails. Please RSVP to Lyn to ensure she has enough prayer guides.
If you enjoy walking or jogging by yourself or with others why not turn it into a time of prayer so that you can exercise your body and your soul at the same time?!
If you are new to the Rosary on the Go, Blessed Sacrament will provide rosary rings for each participant and a weekly prayer intention based on Pope Francis’s monthly prayer intention. Please contact Lyn to request your rosary ring(s) and list of weekly intentions. In Mark 16:15 Jesus said, “GO into the whole world and proclaim the gospel to every creature…” On your mark, get set, GO!!!!
Pope Francis’s Prayer Intention for October: For Missionary Disciples
October 3: We pray that every baptized person may be engaged in evangelization, available to the mission, and by being witnesses of a life that has the flavor of the Gospel
October 10: For each of us to respond wholeheartedly to the call to follow Jesus Christ as disciples without counting the personal cost
October 17: That all members of the Church may be inspired by Christ’s example of generous self-giving in generously sharing their gifts with others
October 24: For the faithful to accept the invitation to proclaim the Good News in word an action so that we may provide hope to others, particularly those on the margins of society
