3 STEWARDSHIP Humbly welcome the word that has been planted in you and is able to save your souls. Be doers of the word and not hearers only, deluding yourselves. Religion that is pure and undefiled before God and the Father is this: to care for orphans and widows in their affliction and to keep oneself unstained by the world. James 1: 21B-22, 27 Our society is quite taken with images and appearances. We need to recognize that Jesus sees through and beyond what we appear to be and do, and He sees into our hearts and souls. This may make us uncomfortable, but it is something with which we must deal on a daily basis. Whatever we do and whatever we may pursue needs to be motivated by love of the Lord and of our neighbor. Love like that - having our hearts close to Jesus - is work, but it is a labor worth pursuing. - See more at STEWARDSHIP OF TREASURE - AUG 23 Envelopes/Sobres: $8, Plate/Canasta: $ Maintenance-Upkeep: $ STEWARDSHIP OF TIME AND TALENT: WELCOMING MINISTRY We are looking to improve our Parish Welcoming Ministry and could use your help! We are building a team of parishioners that can help welcome our new parishioners by delivering a welcome basket to them. What an easy way to make our newest members truly feel like a part of our parish family! If you are interested in helping with this ministry, contact Bridget Hernandez, or THANK YOU TO JEREMY STINGER Thank you to Jeremy Stinger for helping to improve the parish grounds for his Eagle Scout project. Jeremy re-routed the drain line by the tractor garage. We appreciate your work on this project!

At St. Sabina our Adult Grief Recovery Group consists of 6 sessions, 90 minutes in length. It is based on an adult mutual self-help grief recovery model. It is a safe place to recognize and acknowledge a painful loss. The participants are grievers that are courageous and have chosen to be proactive rather than passive. It s a place to give your grief it s voice. Your grief is important! WHEN? WHERE? HOW? Sessions at St. Sabina begin Tuesday, September 22, 2015 and continue for six weeks.

4 LIVING STONES: Foundations for Living Stones A Faith Formation Program for interested Adults Come to him, a living stone...chosen and precious in the sight of God, and, like living stones, let yourself be built into a spiritual house... (1 Peter 2:4-5) St. Sabina is offering an adult faith formation program titled, Foundations for Living Stones. The program explores in greater depth and knowledge the basics of our faith. All the sessions focus on the ministry that we are called to in and through our baptism. Communication skills, group development, leadership skills, bible study, church history, prayer and sacraments are some of the many areas explored and examined in depth. Adult methods of learning and reflection are employed throughout. The sessions are scheduled on Tuesday evenings, from 7-9:30 PM, beginning in late August and ending in late May. This is a 9-month commitment to deepen one s skills and knowledge so as to become a more effective and engaging minister. We hope to work collaboratively with our neighboring parishes, inviting them to be part of this mutual learning process. For more information, please call or either: Biagio Mazza or Kris Larkey ; 2016 DELEGATION TO EL SALVADOR Our parish will be taking its second delegation to El Salvador to learn more about the scholarship program there and to have the opportunity to meet and visit with our scholarship students and their families. We will travel to Cinquera and also to El Mozote. El Mozote was the site of one of many massacres that occurred in El Salvador during their Civil War. As of now we are planning to travel to El Salvador on January 5 and staying approximately 8 days. If you are interested or would like more information, please contact Kris at or by at PARISH PICNIC - SEPTEMBER 27 Come and join us on Sunday, September 27th at 1:30pm for our annual parish picnic. Please bring a pot luck dish to share. The day will include: Pot Luck Dinner Hamburgers and Hot Dogs Cake Walk Games Yogurt Bar Face Painting Piñata Door prizes donated by our parish ministries 1. Our Adult Faith Formation Team is donating an English Bible and a Spanish Bible 2. The Boys Scouts are donating a roll of large yellow trash bags 3.

Page 4 PARISH HAPPENINGS PARENTS LOOKING FOR A SUPPORT GROUP In response to our needs survey, the Love Thy Neighbor team is hosting an informal gathering for the parents of our parish to determine specific areas of support our families may need, such as, tutoring, parents night out, behavior issues, single parent issues, etc. If as a parent you've ever needed information, advice or just another parent to talk to, please plan on attending. We will meet in the Parish Hall on Sunday, September 27, during PSR (9-10:00). A light breakfast of fruit, pastries, coffee and juice will be served. To help us plan for food and babysitting, sign up slips are in the gathering space. TUESDAY NIGHT CONFESSIONS We now offer confessions every Tuesday from 4:30-5:30pm. Confessions are also offered every Saturday from 3-3:30pm. MUSIC MINISTRY - IT S TIME TO JOIN! Music is something that really has an effect on the way we feel. You know what I mean, you have been somewhere and heard that certain song that really seemed to lift your spirits, bring you comfort or make an event more joyful. When we pray with song at Mass it deepens our experience of prayer in the same way. That s why we need you. You are invited to share that feeling with our parish by joining one of our music groups. And here is the great thing - you don t have to be an expert. That is usually the first thing I hear when I speak with someone about joining a parish choir, Well I don t have a professional voice. Most of us don t. That s not what we need. Of course we will never turn down an interested person who has a great deal of musical experience. But frankly, those folks aren t pounding down the doors. What we need is you. You love God. You enjoy coming to Mass because it touches you, feeds you. You have a sense of how music affects your feelings. The rest of it - the music stuff - we can teach you as we go. We are seeking singers and those with instrumental experience of all ages. Hey you high school band & choir members out there, I m talking to you, too! It would be great to have one of you playing flute, clarinet, violin, cello or trumpet on occasion at Mass! You may choose to become involved at any Mass. Practice for the 4:00 and 10:30 Masses is on Wednesdays at 7:00 in the music room of church. The first practice of the season is Wednesday, September 9. The 8:00 Mass choir practices every other Thursday evening. Even if you can t be there every week, come when you can. Most choir members come to think of choir as a sort of small Christian Community, an extended family if you will, because we share so much together over the years. So how about it? Why not come and try it out? I guarantee you will feel like you gain more than you invest. For more information please contact Susan Ratigan in the parish office, or
5 ADULT FAITH FORMATION REFLECTION ON THE TWENTY-SECOND SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME, YEAR B After proclaiming the Bread of Life discourse from John 6 for five Sundays, today we return to our proclamation of Mark s gospel. The refrain of responsorial Psalm 15 captures the focus of today s readings The one who does justice will live in the presence of the Lord. The readings guide us on our path to live in the presence of the Lord. That path requires that we do justice. The readings are full of directions concerning acts of justice and how to activate them. The first reading from Deuteronomy outlines the parameters of justice with a set of verbs. God s chosen people are challenged to hear and observe the statutes and decrees of the Lord. Such hearing and observing will result in a community that is wise and intelligent in the ways of the Lord. Both mind and heart are attuned to God, leading the people to know and follow through on God s wisdom and desires. Following through on God s wisdom and desires will be so evident in their lifestyle and relationships that others will see and praise God s people for living in the presence of the Lord, and for acting justly. The psalm verses are a series of responses to questions that are initially asked by the psalmist in verse one, Lord, who may abide in your tent? Who may dwell on your holy mountain? Such questions speak to our desire to understand the demands of living in the presence of the Lord. The psalmist is clear that speaking truth from the heart is crucial to a life committed to doing the works of justice. To do justice requires that we be just. Exterior actions must correlate to interior disposition, else we become hypocrites. Doing justice requires doing no harm to another...disdaining the wicked...keeping an oath despite the cost...accepting no bribe against the innocent. If one does such actions, then we have some assurance that one is speaking truth from the heart. SCC READINGS FOR SUNDAY, AUGUST 30, st Reading: Deuteronomy 4:1-2, 6-8 Psalm: Psalm 15:2-3, 3-4, 4-5 2nd Reading: James 1:17-18, 21b-22, 27 Gospel: Mark 7:1-8, 14-15, READINGS FOR SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 6, st Reading: Isaiah 35:4-7a Psalm: Psalm 146:6-7, 8-9, nd Reading: James 2:1-5 Gospel: Mark 7:31-37 The letter of James is clear on our need to humbly welcome the word that has been planted in you... God plants the word in our hearts. We are called to cultivate that word, making it fully our own, allowing it to suffuse our very being. Such cultivation conditions us to be doers of the word and not hearers only... This leads to a life of care for orphans and widows in their affliction... James clearly states that if we claim to live in the presence of the Lord, then it must manifest itself exteriorly. Interior disposition does lead to actions that reflect what is in one s heart and mind. This dilemma is directed at Jesus in the gospel passage from Mark. Jesus accuses some of the scribes and Pharisees of hypocrisy because they seem to focus on exterior actions without paying any attention to the interior disposition of the person. Legal external actions seem to be more important than proper interior disposition. Jesus clearly claims that interior disposition is just as important as external actions. Proper external actions can be done for a variety of reasons. It is essential to test the heart and mind if one wants to assess external actions rightly. In your dealings with others, how do you deal with this perennial human dilemma? Do you assess on the basis of external actions alone or do you probe the mind and heart? If others were assessing your actions, would you want them to factor in your interior disposition as well? This week, force yourself not to judge based on external actions alone, but attempt to probe the heart and the mind in your assessment of the other. Pray that we may be people who always do justice by having our external actions correlate with our interior disposition. Biagio Mazza, Pastoral Associate BIBLE STUDY BIBLE STUDY AND SUNDAY READINGS Catholics are mostly exposed to the Bible through the Sunday Lectionary Readings. In order to help us all enter into the Bible through the Sunday readings, we are offering study sessions that will provide an opportunity to read, to study background to the readings, and to reflect on how to apply the readings to our lives. We will gather on September 13th and 27th at 10:30am. All are welcome. Bring a Bible and a friend. To register for these sessions, please call Biagio at Page 5

Amen Page 8 PRAYER BOOST YOUR MEMORY AND YOUR LIFE SPAN WITH WALNUTS A new study in the Journal of Nutrition, Health and Aging found that people ages who ate an average of five walnut halves daily performed significantly better on cognitive tests than those who didn t eat them. The brain-boosting effects may come from the nuts high levels of antioxidants and omega-3 fatty acids. The fats we really need to avoid are found in man-made, processed foods. Of course, we need to moderate the amount of nuts we eat because they are high in calories, which can lead to weight gain. Balanced consumption of nature s natural fats will support your health AND your memory. Doesn t get much better than that! So have a hand full of health today!
