Hard to believe but fall and the month of October have arrived….a time for pleasant days and cool nights.  The days are short, the leaves are colorful and we know that cold weather is just around the bend.  However, the fall is a beautiful time of year.  So let us allow ourselves to enjoy it!
As far as the church year goes, we continue our celebration of Ordinary time during October.  However, during the month of October, we celebrate the feast days of a number of saints and also honor our Blessed Mother.  Some of the saints whose feast days we celebrate are: St. Francis of Assisi, St. Therese (the Little Flower), the Guardian Angels, Pope St. John XXIII, St. Theresa of Avila, St. Luke, St. Isaac Jogues, St. John Paul II, Sts. Simon and Jude and St. Anthony Claret.  We also have our Blessed Mother under the title of Our Lady of the Rosary.
Several of these saints are popular and well-known.  Others are not quite so much.  Why not pick one or two of the saints of October and learn about them.  Turn on your trusty computer or perhaps find a book about one of these saints.  Do some research and learn about the faith-filled life of one of the saints of the Church.
When I was in elementary school, the good Sisters told us over and over again that we were supposed to be saints.  And they were right!  Every disciple of Christ is called to holiness of life.  As we continue our pilgrim journey of faith here on earth, may we imitate the great men and women of faith who have gone before us.

Have a Great Bethany Beach Week!

Good News!  The work to repave the St. Ann parking lots has begun.
Bad News!  Because of this work, there will be no parking on either of the lots at St. Ann after the 8:30AM Mass on Monday, October 7 until the work is completed.  Also the 8:30AM Mass will be celebrated at Our Lady of Guadalupe from Tuesday, October 8, through Saturday, October 12.  If there are no weather delays and the work is done on schedule, an announcement will be made at the 8:30AM Mass that we can move back to St. Ann.

The Journey:Part Three began the week of October 6 and will end the week of November 10. Registration forms are available in the back of the churches and once completed can be dropped in the “Journey” box.
The Journey is an opportunity to spend six weeks re-entering into and renewing your relationship with Christ through scripture, brief scripture-based video clips, and reflection and sharing in a small group setting.  If you would like to learn more about The Journey, call the Office of Faith Formation at 302-539-5443.
