Psalm 128
My Dear People,
Mis Queridos Feligreses,
At this time the Church calls our attention to the
importance of support for vocations to the priesthood.
I am sure you are aware that we have many fewer
priests now than we had even a few years ago. It has
always been my conviction that the basis for a particular call to the priesthood, diaconate, or religious life
flows out of an eager embrace of the vocation that is
rooted in the Sacraments of Initiation. Baptism calls
us to know and love God; Confirmation calls us to
serve the Church and the world by the power of the
Holy Spirit; Eucharist calls us to conscious communion with God and all He loves.
En este tiempo la Iglesia nos llama la atención sobre
la importancia del apoyo a las vocaciones al sacerdocio. Estoy seguro de que son conscientes de que tenemos muchos menos sacerdotes ahora de lo que teníamos hace algunos años. Siempre ha sido mi convicción de que la base para una determinada llamada al
sacerdocio, diaconado, o la vida religiosa fluye de un
acogimiento con deseos a la vocación que tiene sus
raíces en los Sacramentos de Iniciación. El bautismo
nos llama a conocer y amar a Dios; Confirmación nos
llama a servir a la Iglesia y al mundo por el poder del
Espíritu Santo; Eucaristía nos llama a la comunión
consciente con Dios, y todo lo que Él ama.
As you and I live out our vocations with joy and
fidelity, we will naturally attract others to do the same.
Of course, the reverse is also true. There is nothing
more discouraging than a sullen saint, a disciple without discipline, or a Christian who does not know and
love Christ above all other loves.
Como usted y yo vivimos nuestra vocación con
alegría y fidelidad, vamos a atraer naturalmente a
otros a hacer lo mismo. Por supuesto, lo contrario
también es cierto. No hay nada más desalentador que
un santo sombrío, un discípulo sin disciplina, o un
cristiano que no conoce y ama a Cristo por encima de
todos los otros amores.

We Celebrate All Saints Day!
Our Second Graders helped us become
more aware of the goodness of the
Saints on Thursday, October 30th
with a special Prayer Service in
Church. During the Service, each
student spoke briefly about either his
or her patron saint or a special saint that they look up to or have devotion to. With the help of
the Eighth Graders, the students drew and colored their “poster-sized” saint and held each up
for all to see as they spoke about them. We are grateful to Mr. Ibarra and Ms. Tieri – and the
Second Graders – for helping us come to know more about the Saints!
On November 5th, the fourth floor came alive with the presence of many “living saints.”
Thanks to our Eighth Graders and a great Religion Project, each student researched the life of a
saint, wore a costume of that saint during the
day, and presented a little of that saint’s life to the
various classes that came to the “Living Wax
Museum" of Saints. Students (and faculty!),
small and tall, delighted in pressing the “button”
that brought the saint to life…and listened to
their story. A great reminder of the gift of Faith
given to all of us!
Our Thanks…
to all who attended our school’s recent monthly fundraiser at Burger King! We
hope you enjoyed your meal, as well as the friendship of so many SMT patrons!
Know how grateful we are for your continued support!
DECEASED
Please remember the deceased of our parish. May
they rest in the peace of Christ.
