Did You Know...?

 

...that through the generosity of one of our families, we have a wonderful Advent gift to share with all of our parishioners?

The gift is a copy of Matthew Kelly’s “Rediscovering JESUS” – a wonderful read and a great way to deepen your faith during this special Season! Each chapter ends with “points to ponder,” and can be a blessed opportunity to do some spiritual reading and reflection with your family! It was St. Vincent de Paul who wisely observed that “great things must be greatly prepared for.” The Season of Advent is not only a great preparation for the celebration of our Lord’s Birth, but a great opportunity – if used – to learn “how” to prepare and to wait – in joyful expectation. Matthew Kelly’s book – a gift for you – can be part of your equipping and preparation! Pick one up at the entrances of the church – or in the Parish Office!


Special thanks to all who participated last Monday and Tuesday, when your St. Vincent de Paul Community Food Bank distributed over 200 Thanksgiving boxes to our needy neighbors!


Thank you SO much for your great response to our request for turkeys and other food items! Our Life-Teens, our wonderful St. Vincent de Paul members, and other Parishioners participated in this blessed sharing – made possible by your generous support of the Community Food Bank! AND, last week, our Knights of Columbus – working with our good friends at St. Paul Missionary Baptist Church, distributed 800 food commodities boxes to our neighbors at Len Roberts Park!


AND, that our Thanksgiving Day Offering was designated for Good Neighbor Alliance, our local homeless shelter!


We can be very proud of the many “works of mercy” in which we, as a Parish, participate, in our local community, our Diocese, and the world!


With the restrictions in place because of the pandemic, and out of an excessive concern for your health and safety, our Ladies of St. Andrew’s have chosen to cancel this year’s St. Nicholas Fair, however, they are offering their annual Raffle – to support their many acts of charity in our Parish and the wider Community! Please support the Ladies of St. Andrew’s Raffle!

CAN YOU HELP THIS YOUNG WOMAN ACHIEVE GOD’S DREAM FOR HER LIFE?

 

Catherine Logan has been accepted as a postulant for the Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity in Manitowoc, Wisconsin. She plans to enter as soon as she has raised enough money to pay off her student debt.

“What really drew me in was, first, their charism, but also the fact that, when I visited them, I remember there was just this true sense of joy mixed in with this true sense of their personalities,” said Logan, who goes by Katie. “I wouldn’t have to change me; God wants to use me as I am with my gifts and talents.”   

Logan’s call to religious life happened in gradual stages. Born and raised in a Presbyterian family in New Jersey, she had minimal experience with faith during her high school years.

“I had pushed God out of my life, so he wasn’t even a part of it,” Logan said. She hadn’t planned to go to college, but at the urging of a friend, she applied and was given the opportunity to play ice hockey at Neumann University in Aston, Pennsylvania, which was founded by the Sisters of St. Francis of Philadelphia.

“Neumann completely transformed my life because, at the end of my freshman year, I was injured playing ice hockey and happened to step into campus ministry to set up service opportunities. It was just as if God opened a door.”

“A Franciscan priest who I’m still friends with to this day and a campus minister were two of the biggest influences,” Logan said. “For me, the first part of being drawn into the faith and into the Catholic Church was that I had peers who invited me to be involved and go to things. It was because of them that I started to trust in God again to the point that I could begin my own relationship with him. I just became fascinated; I wanted to know about St. Francis and the Catholic faith. I eventually went through the RCIA process when I was a junior.”

After graduating from Neumann, Logan served two years in the Jesuit Volunteer Corps in Detroit, Michigan. She then enrolled in Fordham University in New York to earn a master’s degree in pastoral care and counseling.

In 2013, she moved to Colorado and began working in a residential treatment facility. She currently works for the Resource Exchange as a long-term Medicaid service coordinator.

 “Over those weeks, it was as if God was just chipping away. I remember asking the pastor and parochial vicar how I could get involved in the Church. They said, ‘Maybe you should pray.’ I didn’t really understand what that meant.”

With the help and encouragement of her parish priests, Logan began to attend Mass daily and develop her prayer life, including regular Eucharistic adoration.

“During adoration, God shared the calling to religious life,” Logan said. “It was as if a movie reel was playing in my mind and at the end of it was a picture of habited sisters.”

Logan said that, since deciding to join the Franciscan sisters, she has known inner peace. 

“What really struck me was that feeling of peace and joy to lay my life down and give it fully to God and the church, to allow myself to be used as an instrument in order to bring God’s love to others,” she said. “When you enter an order, it’s no longer ‘mine’ but ours. Over these months, I’ve really seen how God has helped me make that transition. The challenging part right now is not knowing when I might enter.”

For those who would like to help Logan pay off her student debt, a Go Fund Me account can be found here:

We foresee needing some specific items for the Food bank located at 614 Bartow Drive.

Particularly bread, canned fruit, canned chili or stew with meat, ramen noodles and beans.

Our hours have been shortened from 12 noon-3 pm.

We may be forced to shorten them again, but we will continue giving food out to our Friends.
