28th Sunday in Ordinary Time

October 8-9, 2022

Presider   In company with the lepers of today’s Gospel, let us beg God for healing, both for ourselves and for our wounded world.

For Pope Francis; our bishops, priests, and deacons; and all who minister in the Church. May they lead their people with humility and show them how to live the Gospel in their daily lives. We pray to the Lord…

For leaders of nations, especially where there is war, civil unrest, or religious persecution. May they be attentive to the cries of the poor. We pray to the Lord…

For everyone traumatized by flooding, drought, and other natural disasters resulting in loss of homes, businesses, and lives. May our prayers and actions help and support them. We pray to the Lord…

During this Respect Life Month, may we cherish, defend, and protect those who are most vulnerable, from the very beginning of life until its end, and during each moment in between. We pray to the Lord…

For young Catholics throughout the world.  May they respond to the call to ministry and leadership within their parish and school communities. We pray to the Lord…

For the sick. May they be healed and made whole. We pray to the Lord…

For all who have died. May they live and reign with Christ in glory. We pray to the Lord…

For the prayers we hold in our hearts.  (pause)   We pray to the Lord…

Presider (or similar words)   Heavenly Father, hear the prayers we bring before you.  Help us acknowledge your greatness and serve you with grateful hearts. Grant this through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Prayer Opportunities

 

RCIA

 

 

RCIA

Adults enter into full communion with the Catholic Church through a process called the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults or RCIA. Those who have not received baptism look forward to the Sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation, and Eucharist. We share Baptism with many other Christian traditions. In their case, preparation leads to Confirmation and Eucharist as they enter into full communion with the Catholic Church. Baptized Catholics who have not yet received Confirmation and First Communion may also prepare for these Sacraments through this process.

At the end of this process, the candidate will celebrate with the Parish upon receiving Baptism, Confirmation and  Communion on Good Friday, Holy Saturday, and Easter Sunday with their families as recognized members of the Catholic Church.

In addition, we are always looking for those interested in helping RCIA candidates along this journey home to the Catholic Faith. Whether speaking, hospitality, or mentoring, your living example of Catholicism is truly valued. Even if you are unable to join us for this ministry, know that your presence in the Faith can create a welcoming atmosphere to every parishioner.

If you would like to register, have questions or know someone who is interested in becoming a Catholic, please call Tony Lavorata at 393-4445x112 or send an email to [email protected].

GET MORE INVOLVED AT MASS!

Ushers

Are you young, old, male, female, middle or high school,........... anyone looking for a way to be more involved at St. Pius?  Try volunteering as an usher!  We need friendly, helpful people who are willing to assist with the collection and communion at our weekend liturgies.  No training is required; we let you “shadow” an usher once or twice to get the hang of it.  After that, we’ll schedule you as often as you’d like at whichever Mass you prefer!  (Our greatest needs are for the 4:30 and 10:30 Masses.)  If you feel that God is calling you to serve your parish through this ministry, please contact Micaela in the Liturgy Office at 393-4445 or [email protected].  Team up with your husband/wife, son/daughter, mom/dad, Confirmation sponsor, friend, etc., and make this a fun way to share your time and talent!

The current war in Ukraine is cause for great concern for the whole world. Pope Francis has encouraged us to pray for peace.

Donate securely online: https://support.crs.org/donate/donate-ukraine.   Please be sure to write "Ukraine Aid" in the Special Request section. Send checks to: Catholic Relief Services, P.O. Box 17090, Baltimore, MD 21297-0303. Please write on the check "Ukraine Aid."
