The 2014 Craft Fair
The Women of St Jude will be having their annual Craft Fair on November 7th - 8th. This is a great time to start (or finish) your Christmas shopping. We will have 100+ vendors and will be serving our famous soups, baked potatoes, and homemade desserts. Sunshine and Rainbows will be having their fabulous raffle and bake sale. We will also be giving away a free recycleable shopping bag to fill with your purchases. This is a great opportunity to make new friends and for teens to get service hours for Confirmation. We need many volunteers and donations to make this a success! Sign up online now or in the Narthex after all Masses beginning October 18th.
|Hours:||Friday, November 7th, from 9:00-5:00, and|
|Saturday, November 8th, from 9:00-4:00|
Our Giving Tree program will run early this year, with the gifts needing to be returned about two weeks earlier than we have in the past. Save the date for November 9th, when we will bless the tree following the 8am Mass.
The faithful should be advised of their individual responsibility in taking the Precious Blood, which depends on their own personal health situation. If Catholics suspect the onset of influenza [or any other infectious illness] or are simply not feeling healthy, then they should make the decision to refrain from receiving the cup. Receiving the Body of Christ (consecrated host) is advised until the person feels well again. Pastors are encouraged to continue to offer Holy Communion in its “fuller form” (cf. GIRM, n. 281) since there is no clear evidence of any epidemic. Personal common sense regarding the sacramental species is the best course of action. Copies of the Bishop's full Statement on the Liturgy and the Ebola Virus are available in the Narthex.
