THANKSGIVING FOOD BASKETS
Planning for the annual Thanksgiving food basket distribution is underway. Over the next 3 weeks will graciously accept your donations of vegetables and canned goods for the baskets. Because of Covid we will not distribute bags as in years past, but ask that you leave your donations on the tables at the side entrance. You can donate
any or all
of the following items:
5lb bag potatoes
canned green beans
canned peaches or fruit cocktail
If you wish to donate a turkey please call Maryellen at the rectory. We will accept frozen turkeys on November 23 from 9am-12pm. We do not have freezer space to store them. The need for food is even greater this year because of the economy.
If you are in need of food this Thanksgiving, the dates to sign up for a basket will be in the bulletin soon.

"We have been called to heal wounds, to unite what has fallen apart, and to bring home those who have lost their way."
— St. Francis of Assisi
MEDITATION OF THE DAY
"I desire trust from My creatures. Encourage souls to place great trust in My fathomless mercy. Let the weak, sinful soul have no fear to approach Me, for even if it had more sins than there are grains of sand in the world, all would be drowned in the unmeasurable depths of My mercy."
— St. Faustina Kowalska
VERSE OF THE DAY
"Then they will hand you over to persecution, and they will kill you. You will be hated by all nations because of my name. And then many will be led into sin; they will betray and hate one another. Many false prophets will arise and deceive many; and because of the increase of evildoing, the love of many will grow cold. But the one who perseveres to the end will be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached throughout the world as a witness to all nations, and then the end will come."
PRAYER DURING CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC
O clement, O loving, O sweet Mother Mary,
We, your children of every nation,
Turn to you in this pandemic.
Our troubles are numerous; our fears are great.
Grant that we might deposit them at your feet,
Take refuge in your Immaculate Heart,
And obtain peace, healing, rescue,
And timely help in all our needs.
You are our Mother.
Pray for us to your Son.
Sacred Heart- St. Catherine's
