    THE GREATEST AMONG US Whom do you admire? Is it the President of the United States or a movie star or a billionaire? These are people whom the world exalts as great. Like the Pharisees in today’s Gospel, they have places of honor wherever they go. Would you like to follow in their footsteps? The scriptures for today offer different examples for us to follow. Jesus tells us that the greatest among us are the servants. These are the people we are to honor and imitate. We are called to be like Paul, who worked hard to serve the needs of his communities, and Jesus, who gave his life in service to the world. Copyright © J. S. Paluch Co., Inc.

    PRAYERS FOR THE DECEASED - Please pray for Guido Bucci. May his family find hope and consolation through their faith in the resurrected Lord.

    SANCTUARY LAMP - The lamp is burning this week in memory of Roman & Helena Bieniek - Family.

    CHAPEL LAMP - The lamp is burning this week in memory of Major Tom Carr - Mom, Dad, & Sister. When at Mass offer the Mass for Vocations by

    praying the prayer below... Serra Prayer for Vocations

    O God, who wills not the death of a sinner * but rather that he be converted and live * grant we beseech you * through the intercession of the Blessed Mary, ever Virgin * Saint Joseph, her spouse * St. Junipero Serra * and all the saints * an increase of laborers for your Church * fellow laborers with Christ to spend and consume themselves for souls * through the same Jesus Christ * Your Son * Who lives and reigns with You * In the unity of the Holy Spirit * God forever * and ever. Amen.

    Members of the 31 Club agree to go to daily Mass on a particular day every month and offer that Mass for an increase of vocations to the Church. There is a great need for vocations in the Church today. One of the best ways to increase vocations is through prayer, and the greatest prayer we have is the holy sacrifice of the Mass. Upcoming Mass commitments: Nov. 5: Ed B., Joyce K., Chuck & Linda R. Nov. 6: Maxine B., Denise & Michael G., Bernie H., Susan F. Nov. 7: Margaret K. No
