Priesthood Sunday is our opportunity to pray for our priests and praise God for their courage and their generosity. There is an opportunity for you to make your appreciation for Msgr. Juan known. In the narthex from now through October 26, there are cards and a basket for you to write a simple note to assure him of your loving care and gratitude for his presence in the life of our local parish.

Jesus in his humanity was able to weep for the loss of a loved friend Lazarus. In his divinity, He was able to promise comfort for those who are grieving.
For more than 17 years this ministry has helped people who have lost a loved one to death. It is a peer ministry, which means that all facilitators have experienced a loss, and can aid those in grief. We offer two ten week sessions, one in the fall and one in the winter, to help people who have lost a spouse, a parent, a child, a relative, a close friend to death.
We focus on helping those who are grieving by the support and empathy of those who have grieved themselves, and helps them to work through their grieving process, and begin their new life without the one they have lost. For more information please call the parish office at 817-326-2131 or Phillis and Bill Brewer at 817-573-8915.

ARE YOU SOMEONE OR DO YOU KNOW SOMEONE WHO…
- Has expressed an interest in becoming Catholic?
- Was baptized Catholic as a child, but has not celebrated the Sacraments of Confirmation and Eucharist?
The Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA) offers an opportunity to come together in a small group to learn more about our Catholic faith. Sessions focus on the teachings and experience of Church and prepare individuals to celebrate the Sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation, and Eucharist during the Easter season. You are welcome to participate in the process with your questions, your insights and your faith story in a warm accepting setting.
For more information, please contact Steve Dixon, OP at (817)573-2997 or (817)578-9206, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Takes place on the second to last Sunday of October each year. Organized by the Vatican Congregation for the Propagation of the Faith, this is a time for Catholics worldwide to recommit themselves to the Church's missionary vocation.
Each year, the need for support grows as new dioceses are formed and new seminaries are opened in mission territories, as areas devastated by war or natural disaster are rebuilt, and as countries where the faith was suppressed begin to open up to hear the message of Christ and his Church. More than a thousand dioceses around the world receive regular annual assistance from the funds collected on World Mission Sunday. Through our support of this important aspect of our Catholic life, we feel our connection with the global Church, and we respond to Christ's command: "Go . . . and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the holy Spirit, teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you" (Matthew 28:19-20).
The Last day to enroll in classes and qualify for sacramental preparation this year was Oct. 12
Parents of students preparing to make First Holy Communion or Confirmation in May of 2015 please turn in a copy of your child’s baptismal certificate to Melissa Perez or Angela Behrens, even if baptized here at St. Frances.
