CATHOLIC DAUGHTER ANNUAL CARD
& GAME PARTY
February 14, 2015 at the Knights Hall
Come join us for a fun Valentine’s Day event. There will be
great door prizes, raffles and free desserts! It is set for
Saturday, February 14th from Noon to 3:30 pm at the
Knights of Columbus Hall. Admission is $5. We have a
sloppy joe lunch available for an additional $5. Bring your
own cards or games. For more information, or reservations,
please call Sandy at 392-1826.
ATTENTION PARENTS!
The Diocese of Colorado Springs asks all of us to be especially
vigilant when it comes to protecting our children. Our children
depend on us to protect them. Parents, we want you to know
that we will do everything in our power to keep our children
safe from harm. To do this, we need your cooperation. We see
many unaccompanied children taking bathroom breaks during
Mass. Please make sure an adult or teen sibling escorts your
child. You are responsible for the drop-off and pick-up of your
children. Parish staff cannot transport your children per the
Bishop Charter. I want you to know that we require anyone
who wishes to work with our children and teens, or to apply for
any position, must take Foundational Training and submit to a
criminal background check, and they must also be acquainted
with the education staff for at least 6 months. The safety of our
children is our prime concern. We need the entire parish to be
on guard and keep St. Dominic a safe haven for our children.
Sherry Staatz
If you ever doubt God’s love for you, look at Him suffering on
the cross for you. Look at Him hiding Himself in
the Sacred Host, so you can believe. He loves you
with an everlasting love and waits for you to come to
Him in Adoration. He also waits for you to join Him
someday in Heaven. He has a place for you there,
very close to Him. Right now, there is a day and an
hour for you in Adoration!
For more information about Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration at St. Dominic, please call Barbara at 391-0452.
TREASURES FROM OUR TRADITION
“Last rites” is a persistent but pesky phrase in the Catholic
lexicon, and not a particularly useful phrase since it props
open the door to misunderstanding. Many Catholics presume it
refers to the anointing of the sick, yet there is nothing “last”
about it. Clearly, the Church desires anointing to be celebrated
fairly early on in the crisis of illness, and not as a last measure.
The Rites for the Dying stand apart in the Church’s plan, and
include two principal rites. The first is viaticum, Latin for
“food for the journey,” the reception of Holy Communion by a
dying person. Even very active and aware Catholics often do
not realize that this “last rite” does not require a priest’s
presence, but can be conducted by a deacon or minister of
Holy Communion.
The second “last rite” in the pastoral plan is a prayer
called “Commendation of the Dying.” Similarly, this does not
require the presence of a priest, but can be led by any minister
or family member. Too often, we have focused on what only a
priest can do, namely anoint, and have forgotten the fullness of
liturgical care that the Church desires for its dying faithful.
The “last rites” are completely available to us even when a
priest is not.

Ponderings of a Parochial Vicar
My Dear Parishioners,
The sanctity of life is absolute. The gift God has given us
is not to be discarded lightly. Our moral tradition holds that
human life is the most basic gift from a loving God –a gift
over which we have stewardship, not absolute dominion.
As responsible stewards of life, we must never directly
intend to cause our own death or that of anyone else.
This past Friday, Feb. 6, the Colorado House of Representatives Public Health Care & Human Services Committee heard House Bill 1135 (HB1135) which would allow
Physician Assisted Suicide to become legal in the State of
Colorado. A law allowing assisted suicide would demean
the lives of vulnerable patients and expose them to exploitation by those who feel they are better off dead. Such a
policy would corrupt the medical profession, whose ethical
code calls on physicians to serve life and never to kill.

WHAT TO DO IF WE HAVE BAD WEATHER
For information about cancellation of Church events
and activities in case of inclement weather, please
tune to KKTV Channel 11, KRDO Channel 13,
KOAA Channel 5 or go to the Gazette Online.
THIS BILL CANNOT BE ALLOWED TO BECOME LAW!
We already deal with the tragic death of millions of unborn
babies. We cannot compound our sin by killing off our elderly, sick and terminally ill. I beg you to help me to stop
this legislation! Please contact your congressional representatives and tell them how wrong this is. Please call,
write letters, send emails and let you voice, your Catholic
voice, be heard loud and clear. The continual assault on
the dignity of Human life must stop. We must draw the line
and say no further.
Thank you for your help in this most important cause. If
you have any questions about this legislation, please contact Fr. Bill or myself; or go to http://
www.cocatholicconference.org.
I will leave you with a thought from our Holy Father, Pope
Francis:
“A good Catholic meddles in politics, offering the best of
himself, so that those who govern can govern.”
May God continue to bless each of you abundantly.
Your servant in Christ,
Fr. John

HEALING MINISTRY
During Jesus’ ministry “he cured many who were sick
with various diseases, and he drove out many demons.”
This is the case in today’s Gospel. Jesus fulfills the vision
of Psalm 147: “He heals the brokenhearted and binds up
their wounds.”
Jesus knew, however, that he couldn’t possibly heal
all the illness in the world. No matter how many people he
cured or how many hours he ministered, there always
would be more suffering people like Job who craved his
healing touch. His primary mission was not to rid the
world of all suffering. His “purpose” was to preach the
coming of the reign of God that heals, yes, but ultimately
transcends and transforms earthly suffering. With Paul,
Jesus could have said, “Woe to me if I do not preach” that
good news.
MESSAGE FROM FATHER BILL
You have received the letter from Bishop Sheridan concerning
the Returning God’s Gifts appeal. I want to encourage you to
support this appeal financially. I want you to know that I am so
pleased with Bishop Sheridan’s outreach to college students in
the Diocese. I am sure most of you have known young people
who have gone to college and drifted away from the faith. It is
an epidemic in our culture. Rather than shrug our shoulders and
say “oh well”, Bishop Sheridan is facing this issue head-on. He
has hired a fill time priest to do campus ministry. This priest
will be supported by the Returning God’s Gifts appeal. This is
a new ministry funded by the appeal. In addition, we care for
the poor, fund Catholic Education, and Priestly formation (we
currently have 12 candidates in Seminary).
LAITY ENGAGING LAITY (LEL)
LEL is a Diocesan effort focused on Catholic spiritual growth
through prayer, learning and community in monthly miniretreats. The 2015 LEL theme is spiritual growth in the power
of the Holy Spirit. The next mini-retreat will focus on “The
Holy Spirit in the Life of Jesus and the Acts of the Apostles”
on Saturday, February 14th from 9:00 am to Noon at Corpus
Christi Parish Hall (2318 N. Cascade, Colorado Springs). Join
us for an experience of the Holy Spirit. Contact Rhonda Bush
at the diocese (636-2345) if you have any questions.
Thank you for your love and generosity to God and God’s
Church.
Father Bill

Fifth Sunday in Ordinary Time
February 8, 2015
[The L
] tells the number of the stars
and calls them by name.
— Psalm 147:4
We have fallen short of our goal in the last several years. I want
to encourage you to please be generous. God expects 10% of
your income to go to God. If you are not giving a full 10% to
the parish, please give to the Returning God’s Gifts appeal to
make up the difference so that you give 10% to God.
BEGINNING AGAIN
If I were to begin life again, I would want it as it
was. I would only open my eyes a little more.
—Jules Renard
PARISH STEWARDSHIP
INFORMATION
Stewardship Thought: All gifts are given
to us by God. We are to be good stewards
of all God has given us — family, time,
wealth, energy, life. Stewardship calls us to
recognize these gifts as God-given, to use
them in a way that will acknowledge that
God gives them to us to use, and to be
grateful for the opportunity to return
thanks to God by using these gifts.
