From the Pastor's Desk

Fr. Eli

Dear Parishioners,

This coming week I will be gone Mon-Thurs. for our annual clergy conference.  Fr. George will be covering the Masses in my absence.  I am sure there will be some discussion on the state of the church at the clergy conference, but our topic this year is patristics (study of the Church Father’s writings). 

Currently in the Catholic Church the synod on the youth is happening in Rome.  For those who are unaware, a synod is a meeting of bishops.  They meet with the Holy Father to discuss some particular topic or area within the Church.  The synod on the youth is meeting during the month of October (3-28).  Not all the bishops of the world come to a synod.  Each council of Bishops sends delegates to the synod.  The Holy Father also appoints some bishops to attend.  In any given synod there are also advisors or observers who are lay members. 

From our country the delegated bishops are: Cardinal DiNardo (Galveston-Houston), Archbishop Gomez (Los Angeles), Archbishop Chaput (Philadelphia), Bishop Caggiano (Bridgeport), Auxiliary Bishop Barron (Los Angeles).  The Holy Father’s appointees are: Cardinal Cupich (Chicago), Archbishop Tobin (Newark). 

The first part of the synod the members take time to present on the topic to the general assembly.  For an example of what this would look like take a look at Bishop Barron’s article which was the text which he planned to share, visit his website: (  These short speeches are called interventions, they give the bishop’s a chance to hear what others are thinking/experiencing in their part of the world.  The next step in the synod are small groups meetings, where the synod members meet by language groups to discuss the topic and what has already been said.  Finally, they meet back as a group to share as a large group again.  Normally a document is published after the synod that represents the findings or the discussion at the synod.  This synod has for its specific topics: Young People, the Faith, and Vocational Discernment.  Please pray that this synod is helpful for the work of reaching out to the next generation.

May God’s light go before us,

-Fr. Eli

Diocese News from the Northern Cross

Bishop Paul Sirba: A call to pray in reparation and for mercy

On Oct. 7, we celebrate the feast day of Our Lady of the Rosary. The date recalls the famous Battle of Lepanto. In preparation for this defensive battle, St. Pius V ordered Christians in the year 1571 to say the Rosary daily, and before the battle, he ordered a day of fasting and prayer. The faithful made pilgrimages to shrines, like the shrine of the holy house of Loretto. He also ordered the troops to live their lives in harmony with Christian morals or teachings. On the day of the battle, the entire Christian army knelt and received Holy Communion.

The battle was a turning point for Christianity in Europe.

Father Michael Schmitz: What to make of the crisis in the church?

Father, what do you make of what is in the news about the church and scandal?

First, it cannot go without saying that the grand jury report that came out of Pennsylvania is the most horrific and vile thing I have ever read. What priests did to innocent children is beyond shocking. It is absolutely incomprehensible. The further cover-ups and compromises are without excuse. This news is literally the most evil I have ever heard of. Full stop. There is nothing more to be said on that, except that there is a need for the church to do everything possible to care for victims and to be purged of all forms of evil.
