while still observing Respect Life
Sunday (6). Fair Trade USA asks
us to support lives in the developing markets in October as well. If
other ways to champion life are
sought, consider International Day
of Older Persons (1) to fight ageism; upholding the basic right to
shelter on World Habitat Day (2)
and also the International Day of
Non-Violence on Gandhi’s birthday (2); Blessing of Animals’ Day
(4); World Teachers’ Day (5);
Child Health Day (7); World Mental Health Day (10); World Food
Day (16); International Day for the
Eradication of Poverty, founded
by priest Joseph Wresinski (17);
Pastoral Care Week, honoring all
spiritual caregivers (20-26); and
celebrating the United Nations
charter that aims to unite our divided world (24). In addition, the
church observes World Mission
Sunday (20) and Priesthood Sunday (27). The U.S. church particularly celebrates Mother Theodore
Guerin (3), Blessed Francis Xavier
Seelos (5), and Isaac Jogues and
companions (19). In this segment
we also add All Saints’ Day (holy
day of obligation, Nov. 1) and All
Souls’ Day (Nov. 2). Secular observances include Columbus Day
(12) and Halloween (31).

PARISH VISITS: Are you or someone you know (in the Auburn NY area) in need of prayer, companionship, or other support during a period of illness or rehabilitation after surgery? A friendly reminder that all parishioners should feel no hesitation to ask for a visit from a priest or from another parish minister. Visits can include the reception of Holy Communion as requested. Simply call the parish office at 315-252-9545 to request a visit.


Do you feel called to help others who are hurting as they work through some event you have personally gone through in the past? If so, then becoming a Stephen Minister may be the ideal way for you to be trained to answer the call.
"Stephen Ministry is the one-to-one lay caring ministry that takes place in congregations to equip and empower lay caregivers—called Stephen Ministers—to provide high-quality, confidential, Christ-centered care to people who are hurting". There is a local presentation by Stephen Ministries being offered on Saturday October 19th from 9 AM to 1 PM. If you may be interested please call Dc. Dennis 315 406 1538 for additional information before October 15th.


SACRAMENT OF BAPTISM: Baptism is an incredible
gift, filling one with God's grace and wiping away original
sin. Many parents seek baptism for a newborn child. We
are enhancing our pre-baptism preparations to better
engage new parents in the life of the Church. Requests for
infant baptisms will now follow the following process:
Step 1: Call the parish office to set up an interview with
Pastoral Minister Kathy Lipfert (feel free to contact the parish prior to the
baby's birth!)
Step 2: The priest or deacon celebrating the baptism will then meet
with both parents (if at all possible) at a time/location of mutual
convenience (date of baptism will be set at this meeting)
Step 3: Deacon Dennis will follow-up with the family at 3-month and
1-year intervals


If you are a baptized Catholic who
never received Confirmation or
First Communion, or if you were
never baptized and wish to join
the Catholic Church, you are welcome. If you know someone who
might be considering becoming
Roman Catholic, who is presently
from another faith tradition,
please invite them to consider
RCIA. For more information on
the Rite of Christian Initiation of
Adults (RCIA), please contact
Kathy Lipfert at 315-252-9545 or
email her at
