2 A WORD FROM OUR PASTOR If you are reading this column on Saturday evening after the 5:00 pm Mass, you still may have time to make it to our Fall Fundraiser The Langan Luau! So grab your Hawaiian shirt or your grass skirt and cocoanut brassiere and come over to Langan Hall for food, drink, dancing, fun, and a chance to win $10,000! Of course, if you are reading this on Sunday morning, you may already be a winner! But that is only if you purchased a raffle ticket. I hope you did because then you could be $10,000 richer at this very moment. More importantly, our school would be richer too, and I am not just talking about money. Certainly, our school needs the money. We try to provide the best education possible for our school children and at the lowest possible cost. Tuition does not cover the cost of our school. To make up the difference, we depend on fund raising and on support from the parish. That is why our Fall Fundraiser is such an important event. But it not only helps the school budget. The Fall Fundraiser also makes the school richer. As people of faith, our sense of wealth and value is a bit different from the rest of the world. It is our catholic identity that we value education, community, and the mysterious ways of the Spirit. Our Fall Fundraiser enriches our school by helping us to educate our children. It also helps us to build community. So many people must work together to plan, manage, and host the Fall Fundraiser, and this is where community is built. Most importantly of all, there is a great spirit around the Fall Fundraiser. So many people work to make it happen and so many people come to enjoy the party. It is in moments like this that I see the spirit of Divine Infant Parish, and I am proud to be part of this. Not only am I proud, I am so grateful that I am here. This leaves me quite humbled, too, that I am your pastor. In this I feel and see and know the Spirit living and moving and growing in us. Thank you to our School Advisory Board who worked very hard on the Langan Luau. You are to be congratulated! Next time you see our school board members, thank them for all they do for our parish and school: Cathy Kulnig (president), Kevin Lah, Yolanda Powell, Phil Marino, Rob Verber, Bob Lyons, Amy Salata, Mike DeSena, and Tom Mandra. But they could not do it alone. Many thanks go out to all those who helped make the party a success school parents, spouses of board members, and you, the good people of Divine Infant. Thank you to all! But the task of supporting our school is a never-ending one. I ask you please to continue to support our school by participating in our fund raising projects throughout the year. We need more than just money for these fund raisers. We need people to help run them as well. You do not even have to have children in the school to help. Just let me or our principal Mr. Gramarossa know that you would like to help. You can also make donations to our school through our regular Sunday offertory. Together we can keep our school healthy and strong so that our children can grow in knowledge and faith. Fr. Michael THIRTY-SECOND SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME November 7, 2010 My steps have been steadfast in your paths, my feet have not faltered. I call upon you, for you will answer me, O God. Psalm 17:5-6a MOM S NIGHT OUT Come, join with others for a time of peace and quiet, a time of prayer, reflection, conversation you and God time on Tuesday, November 16th, at 7:00 pm in the Religious Education Office. For more information, please call Sister Susan at

5 THE LORD STRENGTHENS US If you drive past a health or fitness club early most mornings, you ll usually see a fair number of cars parked outside. Most likely you ll see more cars parked there than outside the parish church for morning Mass or morning prayer. When the apostle Paul speaks today of the word of the Lord speed [ing] forward (2 Thessalonians 3:1) he is making a racing/athletic allusion. This sort of reference is one of the most frequent in his letters. In his world, influenced by Greek culture, the city s gymnasium was a place for athletics, but also for poetry, philosophy, and religious and political discourse. It was a place for the body, mind, and spirit. All aspects of our life must be guided by the word of the Lord. We can exercise at the health club for bodily fitness, but ultimately it will be the Lord who will strengthen us. In the same way, it will be the Lord s own strength we must use for our vocation as disciples: to speed the word of the Lord forward, so that Christ may be known and God glorified through our witness. Paul sums up by telling us what the heart of the disciple will be: directed at all times toward the love of God, and possessing the endurance of Christ. SANTA S COMING TO TOWN Santa will stop by for pictures at Divine Infant on Saturday, November 20th. All are welcome to come see Santa and take a picture with him. Along with pictures with Santa, Christmas shopping for children, plus food and raffle prizes will be available.

He flew seventy-five combat missions before his plane was destroyed by a surface-to-air missile. Plumb safely ejected and parachuted into enemy territory. He was captured and spent six years in a Communist prison before his release and return to the United States. One day, when Plumb and his wife were having a meal in a restaurant, a man came up to their table and said, You re Plumb! You flew jet fighters in Vietnam from the aircraft carrier Kitty Hawk. You were shot down! How in the world did you know that? asked Plumb. I packed your parachute, the man replied. Plumb gasped in surprise and gratitude. The man pumped his hand and said, I guess it worked! Plumb assured him, It sure did. If your chute hadn t worked, I wouldn t be here today. Plumb couldn t sleep that night, thinking about that man. I kept wondering how many times I might have seen him and not even said Good morning, how are you? because I was a fighter pilot and he was just a sailor. Plumb thought of the countless hours the man had spent below decks standing at a long table, carefully weaving the shrouds and folding the silks of each parachute, holding in his hands the fate of someone he didn t know. So, who s packing your parachute? Like Charles Plumb, everyone has someone who provides what they need to make it through the day: a physical parachute, mental parachute, emotional parachute, or spiritual parachute. Let us remember to say hello, please, or thank you, to congratulate someone on something wonderful that has happened to them, give a compliment, or just do something good in return.
