STEWARDSHIP
"‘I came down from heaven not to do my own will but
the will of the one who sent me. And this is the will of
the one who sent me, that I should not lose anything of
what he gave me, but that I should raise it on the last
day. For this is the will of my Father, that everyone
who sees the Son and believes in him may have
eternal life, and I shall raise him on the last day.’"
Matthew 22: 35-40
Just prior to today’s Gospel reading Jesus reminds us
that “I am the bread of life.” Seven times in Holy
Scripture, Jesus states, “I am…” followed by various
statements which allow us to grasp more fully what He
is and what He has done for us. Bread is considered
one of those essentials “for life.” Jesus is reminding us
that He is essential for life, for eternal life. Jesus is not
speaking of the physical life on this earth, but about
“eternal life.” It is that hope which allows us to trust in
Him by living stewardship. - See more at: http://

AREA OF REMEMBRANCE - ALL SOULS
This year in conjunction with All Souls Day and to honor
those who have gone before us we will have an Area of
Remembrance in the north alcove of the gathering space.
We invite you to bring a photo of your deceased
loved one. This display to honor all of our Faithful
Departed will remain up through the Feast of Christ the
King, Sunday, November 23rd.
DID YOU KNOW?
Many families make it a tradition on All Saints’ Day to
gather at a local cemetery and decorate the graves with
flowers or wreaths in anticipation of All Souls’ Day,
which occurs on November 2. Catholics in many
countries honor and pray for the faithful departed who
may have no one to pray for them.
NATIONAL VOCATION AWARENESS WEEK
On this Commemoration of All the Faithful Departed we
begin National Vocation Awareness Week. Let us
remember those who have given their lives in service to
the Church by renewing our own baptismal commitment
to serve the Lord. Please consider your call to serve God
in your particular vocation. Hopefully some of you will
hear a call to priesthood, diaconate or religious life and
will be open to that possibility. If you would like
assistance, please contact Fr. Richard Rocha at 816-7561858 ext. 572.

FAIR TRADE SALE
Our annual fair trade sale will be next weekend,
November 8 & 9, after each Mass. We will have coffee,
tea, chocolate, Christmas décor, scarves, jewelry, and
much, much more for sale! All of these items were
fairly traded, which means that all of the
artisans who crafted them and workers who
harvested the ingredients were paid a fair
wage. Keep this in mind when Christmas
shopping this year and support fair trade!

BULLETIN PRAYER REQUEST LIST
Parishioners who are ill, or who have a family member or
friend who is ill, may request to have the person
remembered on the Prayer Request list published in the
weekly bulletin. Names will remain on the prayer list for
two months but may be resubmitted upon request.
Please remember permission must be given by the
individual before the name can be published. To add or

Marta Roper at 816-979-3154 or the parish office at 816331-4713.
FOCUS ON MENTAL ILLNESS - STIGMA
People with mental illness and their families often feel
isolated from their faith community and thus isolated from
God. Isolation is often caused by the stigma of the
disease, or fear of being judged as inadequate or weak
willed, or the misperception that God is punishing them
because they did something wrong, or the community’s
misperception of what mental illness is and how it affects
the individual and their families. As a healing community
we can support people with mental illness and their
families with unconditional non-judgmental love in the
following ways: increase our awareness of mental illness
and where to get help, offer prayers and support to
individuals and families who are affected by mental
illness, being more sensitive to the language we use, and
work on the justice issues affecting mental health care.
As a parish family an important first step is to learn
more about mental illness and how it impacts the
individual person and their families. Please plan on
attending an educational presentation through Catholic
Charities’ WELCOMED AND VALUED program. The
topic will be “Mental Health Basics, Understanding Its
Impact on Families”, Saturday, November 15th at
10AM. We will gather in the education wing double
classroom. The presentation and Q & A will be about 90
minutes. To learn more about Welcomed and Valued

ADULT FAITH FORMATION
REFLECTION ON THE COMMEMORATION OF ALL THE FAITHFUL DEPARTED (ALL SOULS)
November 2, the Commemoration of All the Faithful
Departed (All Souls), dovetails with November 1, the
Feast of All Saints. This year, the feast falls on a
Sunday and replaces the readings for the Thirty-first
Sunday in Ordinary Time.
We commemorate all the faithful departed who
have died with hope and trust in a loving God. The
saints, our models of Christian living, are one with
God in heaven. All the faithful departed are those
who have died with hope and trust in a loving God
who calls us to greater growth and development,
even beyond death. This growth and development
occurs in a state of being that we have traditionally
called Purgatory.
While the Western church has emphasized the
cleansing and purifying nature of Purgatory, the
Eastern Orthodox church has emphasized the growth
and development aspect of it. Today, belief in
Purgatory allows one who has died in Christ to
continue growing and developing before meeting God
face to face. God continually invites communion with
these loved ones, but some feel the need to continue
growing and developing before entering into full
communion with God.
The Vatican II Dogmatic Constitution on the
Church, Lumen Gentium, addresses the issue of
death, purgatory and heaven at the end of chapter
seven, “The Pilgrim Church.” The Council asserted
the rich image of the church as the “pilgrim people of
God.” In so doing, the Council affirmed that union
with God is understood in terms of pilgrimage.
Upon
death,
most
experience the completion of
their journey to God begun at
baptism. We call this heaven.
We honor those pilgrims with
the feast of All Saints, asking
them to intercede for us as we
continue our pilgrimage on
earth.
Upon death, others feel the
need for more time to draw closer to the holy. We call
this purgatory. We pray for and with these fellow
pilgrims on the feast of All Souls.
Death does not end the communal desire to help
one another through prayer and intercession to
achieve the end of our pilgrimage. That is why it is a
fitting practice to pray for the dead and to ask them to
pray for us. Just as we do that for each other when
we are alive, so, too, do we continue that bond and
concern for each other even beyond death.
Because of our strong bond in faith we believe
that those who have died continue to be connected
with us, concerned about us as we are about them.
This leads us in faith to believe that they, too, can
intercede with God for us, just as we intercede for
them. This mutual faith bonding beyond death is
what we mean by the Communion of Saints.
These November feasts vividly remind us of the
rich reality known as the Communion of Saints. Take
time this month to pray for and connect with all those
who have gone before us “marked with the sign of
Pilgrimage is a faith journey undertaken for the
faith.”
ultimate purpose of being united with “the holy.” For
Christians, our pilgrimage begins with baptism, when

SIMPLE WAYS TO “TURN UP THE
BURN” (INCREASE YOUR METABOLISM)
THANK
YOU
FROM
FARMWORKERS PROJECT
Before breakfast: Drink cold water. A pint of cold
water may spike your metabolism by 30% for as long
as an hour. Water triggers the sympathetic nervous
system to stimulate your metabolism.
Breakfast: Eat a protein-packed breakfast. Digesting
protein takes up to seven times more energy than
digesting carbohydrates or fat. Try making a dozen
hard-boiled eggs on Sunday, and eat one or two each
day.
After breakfast: Enjoy a cup of coffee. Caffeine
promotes an increase in norepinephrine, a
neurotransmitter that keeps your sympathetic nervous
system activated and your metabolic rate up. Coffee
may increase the amount of energy you burn by 16%
for up to two hours.

Dear Fr. Jeff Stephan and St. Sabina Parish,
From all of us at Migrant Farmworkers Project and
Migrant Farmworkers Assistance Fund, thank you so
much for the continued support of the families of migrant
farmworkers in Lexington and Waverly, MO.
We had a fabulous time at our weekly food distribution
event with ten folks from your parish! They were so joyful
and hard-working. They sorted fresh produce for families
and carried bags of food to their cars. In addition, they
subdivided about 1,000 lbs. of beans and rice into familysized packages in record time. They were a hive of
activity—working in pairs, laughing and having a great
time. Thank you for the generous donations—large boxes
of clothing, Ziploc bags, diapers, baby food, natural tears,
beans, rice, canned goods and grocery bags. Special
thanks to Don and Marilynn Grieb for coordinating the
group of volunteers and the amazing delivery of beans
and rice from Our Lady of Lourdes in Harrisonville. If I
understand correctly, they picked up the beans and rice in
September and stored them until Monday when they
reloaded them into their truck and hauled them to
Lexington for us!

This past Monday alone, we distributed 75 food bags and

coordinator, to know folks like you continue to hold the
migrant farmworker families in your thoughts and

As a new employee, I continue to be touched by the

us as we connect families with services. Thanks for
making this positive exchange possible through your ongoing support!
With Gratitude,

25TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE JESUIT
MARTYRS OF EL SALVADOR
On November 16, 1989, six Jesuit priests, their
housekeeper and her daughter were murdered at the
University of Central America in San Salvador, El
Salvador. To honor them and to remember this
anniversary, members of our diocese with ties to
communities in El Salvador have planned a prayer
service for the evening of November 13 at 7pm at St.
Francis Xavier Catholic Church in Kansas City. The
Hispanic Choir from St. Sabina will provide music, and
incorporated into the evening will be a presentation by
Mary Pimmel-Freeman, who is an artist who has
completed paintings of the Salvadoran Martyrs. All are
invited to attend.
TOTALLY CATHOLIC JEWELRY SALE
St. Sabina’s Altar Society is offering a beautiful selection
of quality Christian jewelry, including bracelets, rings,
necklaces, Catholic medals, crucifixes, and rosaries after
Masses on Nov 1st and 2nd. Advent wreaths and candles
will also be available to order. These items make great
birthday or Christmas gifts. Cash, checks and credit
cards will be accepted. All proceeds will be used to
purchase materials for new Easter banners and other
items for the parish.

CORRESPONSABILIDAD
GRACIAS
DEL
PROYECTO
TRABAJADORES MIGRANTES
DE
Querido Padre Jeff Stephan y Parroquia de Santa
Sabina, De todos nosotros en el Proyecto de
Trabajadores Migrantes y el Fondo de Asistencia para
Trabajadores Migrantes, muchas gracias por el apoyo
continuo de las familias de los trabajadores migrantes en
Lexington y Waverly, MO.
Nos lo pasamos de maravilla en nuestro evento de
distribución de alimentos semanal con diez personas de
su parroquia! Eran tan alegres y trabajadores. Ellos
clasificaron los productos frescos para las familias y
llevaron bolsas de comida a sus coches. Además, se
subdividieron aproximadamente 1,000 libras de frijoles y
arroz en paquetes de tamaño familiar en un tiempo
récord. Ellos eran un hervidero de actividad-trabajaron en
parejas, riendo y pasándolo muy bien. Gracias por las
generosas donaciones-cajas grandes de ropa, bolsas
Ziploc, pañales, comida de bebé, las lágrimas naturales,
frijoles, arroz, productos enlatados y bolsas de papel. Un
agradecimiento especial a Don y Marilynn Grieb por
coordinar el grupo de voluntarios y la increíble entrega de
frijoles y arroz de Nuestra Señora de Lourdes en
Harrisonville. Si he entendido bien, ellos recogieron los
frijoles y el arroz en septiembre y los almacenaron hasta
el lunes cuando los volvieron a cargar en su camioneta y
los llevaron a Lexington para nosotros!
El pasado lunes, distribuimos 75 bolsas de comida y 53
cajas de alimentos del USDA. Es alentador para mí,
como la coordinadora de los alimentos, conocer gente
como ustedes mantener las familias de trabajadores
migrantes en sus pensamientos y acciones generosas.
Como nueva empleada, continúo ser conmovida por las
sonrisas, calidez, sinceridad profunda y reciprocidad
compartido con nosotros mientras conectamos las
familias con los servicios. Gracias por hacer este
intercambio positivo posible a través de su apoyo
continuo!
Con gratitud,
Kate Becker– Defensora de Migrantes en el Proyecto de
Trabajadores Agrícolas Migrantes.
