Bring to church next weekend a toy or a coat; a sack of canned goods or nonperishable items; or a cash donation for the poor.
We are collecting toys for children for the Christmas Season for St. John’s Thrift Store in Brownsville. You may drop these off at the back of church and we will see that they are taken to the store.
We are looking for someone to rent the two bedroom former rectory/convent house. The rent would be $350, plus utilities. We are wanting a middle aged or older person or couple who could help watch over the parish property. If you or someone you know are interested, please contact Fr. Tony at 270-259-3028.
The store will be open Thursday, Friday & Saturday from 9am-3pm. **Closed Thanksgiving Day**
If you want to volunteer to help or to donate items please call Barbara Fitzhugh at 286-0091.
Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them. May the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.

82% of people who don't attend church say they would attend IF invited by a friend. Will YOU be that friend to someone THIS week?
Why do you think Jesus told his disciples the parable in today's reading? Perhaps he does not want them to mistake being humble with hiding ones skills and abilities. Each of the three servants receives a certain amount of money from the master. The first two servants use their gift wisely and increase their master's investment. But the third servant, out of fear and lack of self-confidence, buries the money. When the master returns, that servant has nothing to offer him but the small amount received in the first place.
