JESUS I TRUST IN YOU
Great News! We now have a pamphlet for our
devotion for the sick and dying. All the prayers
have been put into one booklet, and the print is
larger.
We meet every Monday at 7pm in the
Adoration Chapel.
All are welcome to a Holy Hour to pray for the repose of the
souls of the faithful departed who are buried in our Catholic
Cemeteries. This one-hour prayer service includes the Holy
Rosary, Chaplet of Divine Mercy, and other prayers for the
dead. This is a wonderful opportunity to come together as a
community to pray for our loved ones in a supportive setting,
and is especially healing for those who have lost a loved one
very recently.
The service will be held in the chapel of Gethsemani
Catholic Cemetery on Tuesday, October 21st at 11:00 AM.
Gethsemani Catholic Cemetery address is:
11666 SE Stevens Road

DOMINGO 28 DE TIEMPO ORDINARIO
12 DE OCTUBRE, 2014
JESÚS ENCUENTRA OPOSICIÓN
El evangelio de hoy continua una serio de encuentros que
tiene Jesús con los sacerdotes y ancianos del pueblo de Israel,
o sea, los líderes religiosos del pueblo de Dios. Ellos se han
opuesto a lo que él viene a enseñar, y en una serie de
parábolas, les responde de parte del Padre.
Hoy, por ejemplo, a través de la parábola del
BANQUETE DE BODAS DEL HIJO DEL REY, Jesús les
hace ver claramente que ellos, al oponerse a él, están
insultando a Dios Padre y rehusando seguir su dirección. Si
no cambian de actitud, se encontrarán excluidos del cielo,
igual que los invitados al banquete.
Y nosotros, ¿Cómo le estamos respondiendo a Dios en su
invitación de seguir a Su Hijo, y dejar a un lado TODO lo
que nos pueda separar de él?
GRUPO JUVENIL EN SANTA CECILIA
JÓVENES: Tenemos un grupo juvenil muy activo en
nuestra parroquia que desea invitarles a participar en sus
actividades.
Si desea participar, venga al grupo el día viernes, o puede
hablar con uno de los integrantes para obtener más detalles.
LOS ESPERAMOS.
EL DIÁCONO ARMANDO HERNANDEZ, MSpS
El Diácono Armando, quien se encuentra
acompañándonos los fines de semana en Santa Cecilia en
diferentes celebraciones de la Eucaristía, viene originalmente
de Lerdo, Durango en Mexico. Durante la semana está en el
seminario de Monte Angel terminando sus estudios para el
sacerdocio.
A los 10 años de edad, Armando se trasladó a Mexicali en
Baja California, junto con su familia, donde estudió después
contabilidad y diseño gráfico.
Después de 7 años trabajando en diseño para una
empresa de cerámica, experimentó una atracción fuerte a
servirle al Señor y a Su Iglesia. Después de un período de
formación y servicio en EL SEMBRADOR, con Noel Diaz,
decidió consagrar su vida a Dios y entró a la congregación de
los MISIONEROS DEL ESPÍRITU SANTO, donde ha sido
miembro desde el 2001.
Ahora, al concluir este año que le falta de preparación,
espera ser ordenado al SACERDOCIO en el 2015.
NO OLVIDEMOS de orar por las vocaciones al sacerdocio
y la vida religiosa.
ARMANDO ROSARIOS … A MANO
Hay un grupo de personas en la parroquia que se dedican
a armar ROSARIOS a mano para otros que no tienen o
conocen lo que es el rosario.
Si usted dispone del tiempo y desearía ayudar en esta
hermosa labor de fe, llame a la oficina parroquial y hable
con Erika. Hay una persona en este momento que tiene el
material necesario, así que lo que usted tiene que poner
de su parte es el tiempo y el amor.
SACRAMENTOS PARA ADULTOS
Si usted es mayor de 18 años, y no ha recibido algunos
de los primeros sacramentos de la iglesia, tenemos un
programa para ayudarle en su preparación.
Los días DOMINGO, de 12 a 1:30 PM, tenemos clases
para las personas que desean prepararse para recibir los
SACRAMENTOS de BAUTISMO, la CONFESIÓN (o
Reconciliación), y la PRIMERA COMUNIÓN.
Si usted o alguien que usted conoce desean averiguar
más sobre el programa o para inscribirse, puede llamar o
pasar a la oficina parroquial.
TENEMOS UN NUEVO “WEBSITE”
Si usted tiene acceso al internet en una computadora,
puede obtener información sobre muchos eventos en la
parroquia: www.stceciliahurch.org.
SABADOS: CONFESIONES EN ESPAÑOL
Las confesiones se celebran comúnmente los
SABADOS de 8:40 a 10 AM, y de 3:30 a 4:30 PM, en
inglés y español.
PLÁTICAS PARA BAUTISMO
Padres y padrinos: necesitan pasar por la oficina para
llenar el formulario necesario (traiga el acta de
nacimiento del niño) antes de las pláticas.
MENSAJE MARIANO
“¡Queridos hijos! Hoy el Señor me ha permitido que les
diga nuevamente que viven en un tiempo de gracia. No
están conscientes, hijitos, de que Dios les da una gran
oportunidad para que se conviertan y vivan en paz y
amor. Ustedes están demasiado ciegos y atados a las
cosas terrenales, y piensan en la vida terrenal. Dios me
ha enviado para que los conduzca hacia la vida eterna.
Yo, hijitos, no estoy cansada, aunque veo sus corazones
apesadumbrados y cansados para todo lo que es gracia y
don. !Gracias por haber respondido a mi llamado!” 25 de
octubre, 2006.

Respect Life Happenings
Each October is set aside by the bishops of the
United States as Respect Life Month,
a time to particularly reflect on life issues and to
pray for and promote greater respect for all
human life. This year’s theme is “Each of us is a
masterpiece of God’s creation,” adapted from
Pope Francis’ 2013 Day for Life greeting.

40 Days for Life Collaboration
