PASTORAL COUNCIL MEETING
The next regular meeting for the Pastoral Council of St. Gregory the Great will be held at
6:30 pm, 27 March 2017 in Mary's House
(Senior Center). This is an open meeting and all parishioner are welcome to attend. The meeting will stress the need to promote our parish, begin planning the recruitment of new members in May and the election of officers also in May.
PASTORAL COUNCIL SUPPORT
We will enter into a new Pastoral Council calendar year and need to work on our purpose and resolve for the year. We serve the parish as an advisory group to Fr. Rudy with a primary focus to assist and support ministries in whichever way we can. The ultimate goal of parish life is to take a fresh look at its many aspects and shape them in ways that will bring people closer to the Lord.
PROMOTE OUR PARISH
We must promote our parish, build-up our image in a way that will attract new parishioners and/or increase attendance. Attracting young parents could have the potential of a positive effect on school enrollments. One way is by word-of-mouth and another way would be to submit information about our parish to Today's Catholic for publication.
Eucharistic Apostles of the Divine Mercy
“Mercy is love that seeks to lessen
the misery of others”
I feel certain that my mission will not come to an end upon my death, but will begin. O doubting souls, I will draw aside for you the veils of heaven to convince you of God's goodness so that you will no longer continue to wound with your distrust the sweetest Heart of Jesus. God is Love and Mercy. (Diary of St. Faustina, 281)
For study: Sunday, April 2nd and
April 30th, 2:30 p.m., Mary’s House (Senior Center, 720 Beryl).

Novena to Our Blessed Mother to End Abortion was printed in our bulletins. If you did not get a printed copy you can go to the Bulletin tab and view them. See bulletin, February 12th for Day 1 and 2 of the Novena, February 19th bulletin for Day 3 to Day 6, and February 26th bulletin for the last 3 days of the Novena.
Wikipedia says a Novena (from Latin: novem, “nine”) is an ancient tradition of devotional praying in Christianity, consisting of private or public prayers repeated for nine successive days or weeks . . . In the Catholic tradition, much used novena prayers include doctrinal statements in addition to a personal petition.
In a Novena, we can pray the same prayer for all nine days or follow a list of prayers for each day of the novena. There are many Novenas, most of which focus upon Mary, St. Joseph, the Sacred Heart, Saints, a special theme, such as Divine Mercy or the Holy Family, or preparing for Special Feasts. They can be prayed for special needs of the whole church or a particular part of the Church. The novena can be different formation of prayers.
Our fourth Spiritual Adoption program began the weekend of January 31st and February 1st. This program asks us to say a short prayer every day for nine months to help pregnant women who findthemselves in difficult circumstances to seek help rather than resort to the alternative of abortion, which is completely against God’s plan and the teachings of the Catholic Church. At the end of the nine months, there will be a “birth-day” party where we collect items for new born to distribute to several women’s centers.
