Reading 1JER 31:7-9

Thus says the LORD:
Shout with joy for Jacob,
exult at the head of the nations;
proclaim your praise and say:
The LORD has delivered his people,
the remnant of Israel.
Behold, I will bring them back
from the land of the north;
I will gather them from the ends of the world,
with the blind and the lame in their midst,
the mothers and those with child;
they shall return as an immense throng.
They departed in tears,
but I will console them and guide them;
I will lead them to brooks of water,
on a level road, so that none shall stumble.
For I am a father to Israel,
Ephraim is my first-born.

Responsorial PsalmPS 126:1-2, 2-3, 4-5, 6

R. (3) The Lord has done great things for us; we are filled with joy.
When the LORD brought back the captives of Zion,
we were like men dreaming.
Then our mouth was filled with laughter,
and our tongue with rejoicing.
R. The Lord has done great things for us; we are filled with joy.
Then they said among the nations,
“The LORD has done great things for them.”
The LORD has done great things for us;
we are glad indeed.
R. The Lord has done great things for us; we are filled with joy.
Restore our fortunes, O LORD,
like the torrents in the southern desert.
Those that sow in tears
shall reap rejoicing.
R. The Lord has done great things for us; we are filled with joy.
Although they go forth weeping,
carrying the seed to be sown,
They shall come back rejoicing,
carrying their sheaves.
R. The Lord has done great things for us; we are filled with joy.

Reading 2HEB 5:1-6

Brothers and sisters:
Every high priest is taken from among men
and made their representative before God,
to offer gifts and sacrifices for sins.
He is able to deal patiently with the ignorant and erring,
for he himself is beset by weakness
and so, for this reason, must make sin offerings for himself
as well as for the people.
No one takes this honor upon himself
but only when called by God,
just as Aaron was.
In the same way,
it was not Christ who glorified himself in becoming high priest,
but rather the one who said to him:
You are my son:
this day I have begotten you;
just as he says in another place:
You are a priest forever
according to the order of Melchizedek.

AlleluiaCF. 2 TM 1:10

R. Alleluia, alleluia.
Our Savior Jesus Christ destroyed death
and brought life to light through the Gospel.
R. Alleluia, alleluia.

GospelMK 10:46-52

As Jesus was leaving Jericho with his disciples and a sizable crowd,
Bartimaeus, a blind man, the son of Timaeus,
sat by the roadside begging.
On hearing that it was Jesus of Nazareth,
he began to cry out and say,
“Jesus, son of David, have pity on me.”
And many rebuked him, telling him to be silent.
But he kept calling out all the more,
“Son of David, have pity on me.”
Jesus stopped and said, “Call him.”
So they called the blind man, saying to him,
“Take courage; get up, Jesus is calling you.”
He threw aside his cloak, sprang up, and came to Jesus.
Jesus said to him in reply, “What do you want me to do for you?”
The blind man replied to him, “Master, I want to see.”
Jesus told him, “Go your way; your faith has saved you.”
Immediately he received his sight
and followed him on the way.

Thank you to Sean Brown who served as cantor today (see video above) and to Otto Kobler who was our lector.


Thursday, Nov. 1, mass at 9:00 AM


We have placed the order to the engraver for our plaques and they will be installed at the beginning of next summer. You will have the opportunity to order a plaque next year, at the end of summer we will place a second order.

Thank you to everyone who has participated in this campaign. We are so grateful for your support and hope that the memorial plaques will be a blessing to you.

As we approach All Souls Day, we will be praying for the souls of all the departed, and of course, our own loved ones who are included in that group.

The campaign has brought in over $14,000 so far, which includes generous donations as well as plaque purchases. This will cover the cost of the storage shed and the repair and replacement of the pews, as well as new picnic tables and benches in the outdoor church area and the yard behind St. Hubert’s Hall. We hope to discourage vandalism and negative behaviors associated with the area by emphasizing that it is a church, deserving of respect, and to encourage appropriate use of the property by the community.



Please join us for coffee after the 9:00 AM mass. We are trying something new – serving the coffee, sweets and savories indoors. It might be too cramped for space, in which case we will discontinue until warmer weather permits use of the porch.

Thank you all for supporting this service, we so enjoy meeting new parishioners and visitors, and visiting with old ones!



Thank you to Burtonz Bakery for the delicious meat pies; thank you also to Valerie Pritchard for the delicious egg, ham and potato baked yumminess! Thank you Gail Culverwell for helping to serve and clean up. Our first time serving inside the church worked out rather well, despite the tight space. We are hoping to remove the last 2 or 3 pews to create a larger foyer area, we will update you as plans go forward. Have a beautiful Sunday!
