NEAT SIGNS OUTSIDE OF CHURCHES

1. An ad for one Church has a picture of two hands holding stone tablets on which the 10 Commandments are inscribed and a headline that reads: For fast, fast, fast relief, take two tablets and call me daily.

2. When the restaurant next to another Church put out a big sign with red letters that said: “Open Sunday,“ the Church reciprocated with its own message: “We are open on Sundays, too.”

3. A singing group called “The Resurrection” was scheduled to sing at a church. When a big snowstorm postponed the performance, the pastor fixed the outside sign to read, “Resurrection is postponed.”

4. People are like tea bags– you have to put them in hot water before you know how strong they are.”

5. God so loved the world that He did not send a committee.


Dear Friends,

Thank you for your positive response to my talk last week. I heard from a lot of the old timers, but I would like to hear more from the newly arrived. Please continue to let me know what you think. Together let us continue to build the Kingdom of God in our little patch of South City.

Eucharist in Greek means “to give thanks.” On Thursday, we as a nation “give thanks” to God for all the many good gifts He has given us during this past year. There will be no 8 a.m. Mass on Thanksgiving. Instead, we will celebrate Mass at 10 a.m. Please join me and the rest of your fellow parishioners in “giving thanks” by bringing your Thanksgiving Bread and Wine to be blest after Mass. I look forward to seeing you.

Have a great week!

Father Brian
