The Weekend of October 27-28
by Adam Mumm
This Weekend at SJTW
Father Tom joins us this weekend as we celebrate the 30th Sunday in Ordinary Time
In the Readings
First Reading Jeremiah 31:7-9
In the First Reading, God tells His people to rejoice because He will always be with them and will always provide for their needs. God loves all of His children and cares for them. He consoles and leads them, keeping them safe.
Second Reading Hebrews 5:1-6
In the Second Reading, Paul writes that Jesus, like every other high priest, was taken from among us to be our representative before God to offer a sacrifice for our sins. Although He is without sin, Jesus has patience with our own failures because He was made human and experienced human weakness. Jesus isn’t our savior for His own glory. He saves us for the glory of God the Father who sent Him and so that we might be saved.
Gospel Mark 10:46-52
In the Gospel, a blind man named Bartimaeus begs Jesus to have pity on him. Although some told him to be quiet, he continues to beg. Jesus then calls Bartimaeus over and asks what he wants Him to do for him. Bartimaeus replies “Master, I want to see.” Jesus then tells him to go his way because his faith has saved him. Immediately, Bartimaeus can see and follows Jesus.
We will welcome a new member into God’s family through baptism at the 5:00 Mass.
There will be Children’s Liturgy of the Word at the 8:30 and 11:00 Masses. All kids between the ages of 5-10 and their guardians are invited to Martin Hall following the Gloria.
Time and Talent Forms
Our seasonal Time & Talent forms for the Celebration of Remembrance and the Advent/Christmas season are in the pews this weekend. Fill out the form and place it in the collection basket if you would like to help.
Find what your heart is wanting Here.
In the Gospel, Jesus asks Bartimaeus what he wants. Bartimaeus responds he wants to see. In our hearts, each of us wants to see Jesus. One place you can encounter Him is through the Eucharist and the community at Mass. Experience Jesus and grow closer to Him and to other followers Here.
Experience the difference:
- Here, you’ll celebrate and worship in an atmosphere that is never stuffy and welcomes you as you are.
- Here, you can ask questions about your faith and grow in your relationship with Jesus.
- Here, you can experience Mass with larger-than-life screens and contemporary music at our 11am contemporary Mass. Or, enjoy a more traditional experience at our other Masses if that’s your preference.
- Here, you’ll be able to reach out into the broader community to impact the lives of our friends and neighbors.
- Here, you matter and you can make a difference.
Ready to engage?
Join us for Mass and experience what we’re all about.
Jesus is waiting for you. Here.
