Stewardship Thought

“For the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve

and to give his life as a ransom for many.” Mark 10:45

If you held a mirror up to your life, would it reflect God’s love and grace? If you are struggling with this, try changing your attitude from “I want more” to “thank you God for everything you have given me, I have enough to share”. This change in perspective will bring you joy through service to others.

“Porque ni aun el Hijo del hombre vino para que le sirvan, sino para servir y para dar su vida en rescate por muchos."

Marcos 10:45

Si pudiera ver su vida reflejada en el espejo, ¿reflejaría el amor y gracia de Dios? Si usted tiene dificultad con esto, intente cambiar su actitud de "quiero más" a "gracias Señor por todo lo que me has dado, tengo lo suficiente para compartir". Este cambio de perspectiva le traerá dicha por medio del servicio a los demás.

One cannot help but notice the new doors on the main entrance to the Church. Thank you to those who donated

and others who volunteered their labor to this project. The new doors give us an occasion to pause and reflect on

the meaning of doors, especially to a Church.

When you step through the doorway of a church, you are leaving the outer-world behind and entering an inner world. The outside world is a place abounding in life and

activity, but also a mingling of the base and ugly. It is a sort of a market place, crossed and re-crossed by all. There is something profane but not bad about it. Behind the church doors is an inner place, separated from all this

activity and market place. It is a silent and holy spot. It is true that the whole world has been created by God and we may meet anywhere, that all we receive is from God’s hand, and when thankfully received, is holy.

Never-theless women and men have always felt that certain places were in a special manner set apart and dedicated

to God.

Between the outer and inner world are the doors. They are the barriers between the market place and the sanc-tuary, between what belongs to the world at large and what has been consecrated to God. And the doors warn humans who open them to go inside that they must leave at the door the thoughts, wishes and cares which are here out of place. The place you are entering is holy ground. Do not rush through the doors. Let us take time to open our hearts to their meaning and pause a moment. In this way, our entering will be an act that is fully intended and

reflected upon.

(These words and thoughts are from Romano Guardini’s outstanding little book entitled SACRED SIGNS. We will finish

his reflection on the meaning of doors nest week)

Liturgical Renewal

We will have a change in our Liturgical Renewal process. In recent years, we have been meeting between Masses during a weekend near the beginning of the new liturgical year. Our new Liturgical Minister Reflection Day will be held during Lent. Watch the bulletin around that

time for more details.

Update on (Rev.) Joseph Popelka

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

Below you will find a message directly from Fr. Joseph Popelka, your former pastor. From the time of his leave

of absence I have been in regular contact with him, including in-person meetings. As you will read below,

following his leave of absence Father undertook an extended spiritual retreat. He likewise has consulted with trusted individuals. The result is that he has elected to

leave priestly ministry. While such a decision always involves sadness for us all, it is perhaps important to recall that the ministry he offered generously in the past

is in no way diminished. It is my hope that each of you will keep him in prayer as he discerns his future.

May God bless you abundantly. Bishop Edward J. Weisenburger


During these days of rest, I have taken the

opportunity to attend an extended retreat and to

take significant time to reflect and pray. I have discovered that during my 23 years as a priest that a

certain peace was lacking in my life. The stress involved in priestly ministry also was a great burden.

This has become stronger in the past three years since my parents' deaths. For this reason, I will not be returning to the priestly ministry. While I am firm

in my decision to seek laicization, I will miss and always treasure the blessing of being a part of

people's lives. (Rev.) Joseph Popelka


Consider the joy of spending one hour each week in quiet prayer before the Lord.

SDCW Annual Rosary

The SDCW will be praying a special rosary on

Oc-tober 25, for all women of Seven Dolors, living and

deceased. Rosary will begin in church at 5PM and

be followed by a potluck salad supper in the

church basement. After supper Sister Margaret

Nacke will give a presentation on the scourge of

human trafficking. Sister Margaret, who lives in

Belleville, KS, founded the Bakhita Initiative. Its

goals are to create a specific nationwide network

of Catholic Sisters involved in efforts to end human

trafficking. She was awarded a grant enabling her

to develop a database that includes 90

congrega-tions of sisters, networks and

collab-orations where there is a strong

pres-ence of sisters who address human

trafficking. Please join us for this

evening of sisterhood. This is open to

all women.

Throughout the month of

October, Seven Dolors will have a

rosary before each Saturday 6

Notice for St. Patrick’s Parishioners:

Fr. Kerry will host a general parish meeting after the 4:15 Mass on October 24

to discuss liturgical ministries, parish care and parish financ-es. The meeting should last about 30 minutes.

Are you dealing with the death of your spouse, a parent, a sib-ling, a child or a friend? Come to any or all of a series of meet-ings to help you understand, cope, and heal through a pro-cess called GriefShare. Wheth-er it’s been one month, one year or 10 years, GriefShare can help you heal from the loss of your loved one. Each week the group will watch a video seminar on DVD. Our next meeting of GriefShare is Tuesday, October 20. The topic is “ Les-sons of Grief – Part One” “You need help to face the days ahead, to take steps forward, to do your grief work, and to remain steady as you go. This session introduces several practical lessons that will help.” Join us! Meetings are Tuesday evenings at 6:30 PM in the Seven Dolors Parish Center, 731 Pierre. You are welcome to come to any or all sessions. For more information call the Parish Offices at 565-5000.

On October 22, Fr. Kerry will talk about Morality and Social Justice to the Inquirers. We meet in the Tower Room of the Utopia annex at 7p.m. If you have questions, call Rosie at the office or email her at

Church Basement and School/Gym Rental

It seems like in this day and age everything we do is

be-coming more complicated. Speaking of complicated, we

are being asked to change the way we rent the church

basement and school gym. As always, we will continue

to rent these spaces for a donation. That has not

changed. However, due to insurance concerns, we are

going to have to start requiring that the person

responsi-ble for the rental provide a copy of their homeowners

insurance listing that coverage has been extended for the

rental event. Although this seems like a burdensome

re-quest, insurance companies are actually used to getting

these requests and it should be relatively easy for them to

provide you with this. We apologize for the

inconven-ience, but if this allows us to continue renting the space

for birthdays, anniversaries, graduations, etc., then it is a

small price to pay. Thank you for your understanding and

For the past 25 years, many of you have been faithfully clipping and saving Best Choice UPC codes. I started collecting the codes for the benefit of Seven Dolors Adult Choir. Since that time I have redeemed around 75,000 codes resulting in approxi-mately $2,200 for the choir. Thank you so much to everyone who saved, whether it was one code or a sack full. I never knew where they came from but you all know, and I want you to know how much I appreciate your efforts. Since Ray's Supermarket has closed, we no longer have a source for Best Choice products in Manhattan that I know of. If you still have codes you have not sent, go ahead and send them as I need 1,000 to mail at a time and I have around 600. God bless you all! -Delores Thomas
