Service of Light Mon., Nov. 3th at 7pm: During
November, Catholics remember their deceased
loved ones in a special way. Our parish celebrates a
Service of Light to remember those who died during
the past year, specifically since November, 2013. At
this liturgy, the names of those who have died in the
past year will be read and family members or loved
ones are invited to bring forward a candle in remembrance. If you have a loved one who died during this
year, please call the office at 817-481-2685. If you
cannot attend, we will remember your deceased
loved one & a candle will be brought forward.
Book of Remembrance: During the month of November, Catholics remember their deceased loved
ones in a special way. Located next to the baptismal
font is the Book of Remembrance in which you may
list the names of your deceased loved ones.
Youth and Adult Reader Training
Tuesday, October 14th

All youth and adults who would like to Proclaim God’s
Word are strongly encouraged to attend this Reader
Ministry Training. For more information contact Kevin
Pichon at klpichon@yahoo.com
Sound Monitors
With the new sound system completed, I’m
looking for several people who can serve as
Sound Monitors for the 5 weekend masses.
These people monitor and adjust the volume levels on each channel to maintain the optimum
sound levels for spoken voice and music voice and
instruments. The person should have a basic command of digital technology, and a ‘good ear’ to
maintain a great sound environment and keep music
groups balanced. Ideally, would like teams of 3 per
mass that could rotate, and cover for each other on
an ‘as needed’ basis. Call Denise Brooks at the office
for more information.
NEW! A permanent
St. Francis Children’s Choir forming now!
We are excited and fortunate to have
Mrs. Arlene Anderson-Jones, president of our school,
Holy Trinity, and a music educator, lead our new Children’s Choir! This choir will meet weekly throughout
the school year, and sing occasional Sunday masses,
special celebrations, and the Christmas Concert. The
choir is open to grades 3 through 6. Rehearsals will
be weekly on Mondays, from 4:15-5:15pm. For more

Pastor’s Points from Father Flynn
Just a little over 5 months ago we distributed nearly 1500
copies of Mathew Kelly’s book “Rediscover Catholicism”
following all the Masses on Easter Vigil and Sunday. The
other day I wondered how many of our members have
read at least a few pages? Then I took out my own
copy and went to page 18 where Kelly sets out four
things that he’s become convinced of after fifteen
years of researching the Catholic Church today:
1. “There is genius in Catholicism, if we will just
take the time and make the effort to humbly
explore it.
2. There is nothing wrong with Catholicism that
can’t be fixed by what’s right with Catholicism.
3. If you and I are not part of the solution we
are part of the problem.
4. If sixty-seven million Catholics in the United
States stepped it up a notch something incredible would happen.”
As I re-read parts it became clear to me that here at St.
Francis of Assisi, Grapevine we have a microcosm of the
Church that Kelly talks about. All four ‘things’ could apply to us as well. There is a ‘genius’ in our parish if we will
just take the time and make the effort to humbly search
for it; there is nothing wrong with our parish that can’t
be fixed by what’s right with it (and there’s plenty that’s
right!); if you and I are not part of the solution we are
part of the problem; and if 8000+ parishioners from St.
Francis stepped it up a notch something incredible
would happen.
We are blest in having the number of parishioners who
are very engaged in our mission here, but you know,
there’s plenty more that needs to be done and can be
done to rebuild and transform us into a more fully engaged and dynamic worship community. I ask you to
find the book, read the book if you haven’t done so,
and if you have, the pass it on to someone who hasn’t
read it and begin to ‘step up a notch’ in your faith journey. For each person that will mean something different, something unique to them that collectively will begin to show its effects on the larger community. Your
response to our “Just One Hour” campaign was an excellent beginning and now we need to continue to
stretch our capacity to turn our lives towards the Lord in
everything we do every day. I take my responsibility for
the salvation of my 8000+ ‘children’ very seriously and I
pray each day that all of you take yours just as seriously.
Together we can and will change our world! God bless
you…and keep reading the book! “He has told you, O
man, what is good; what does the Lord require of you
but to do justice, to love kindness, and to walk humbly
with your God?” (Micah 6:8)
