Weekly Bulletin September 18, 2022
by Terrie Evans
This is the 25th Sunday in Ordinary Time. It is also the Sunday in the Catholic Church referred to as Catechetical Sunday by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops. On this Sunday, the church reflects on the role that each person plays in being a witness to the Gospel. Pope Francis is urging all young adults, Ministry leaders and Bishops “To Move Boldy into the Future” with evangelization. Those who have chosen to be Catechists will be commissioned for their ministry on September 18, 2022, with the theme “This is my Body given for you”.
To prepare for their commission, online services were offered to all interested individuals to help serve diocesan leaders. Many age groups are needed for parish catechetical leaders to promote the Eucharist as the source and summit of Christian life. This Sunday all those who are interested in promoting the Catholic Church will take on teaching the true meaning of the Eucharist and provide faith formations to diverse groups and settings. Taken from the Greek word Eucharistia, meaning thanksgiving, we celebrate the Eucharist as the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ under the appearances of bread and wine, the glorified Christ who rose from the dead. We discover the meaning of Church and the real presence of Christ in the Eucharist that helps all of us experience the richness of our faith. We pray for all those who have chosen to be commissioned as Catechists in the Catholic Church.
On this Sunday at San Antonio Church, we welcome members of the Comarata, Miller, Sammons, Hornsby, Rizzo, and Weigand Families as they gather for a Memorial Mass in memory of their Patriarch, Anthony James Comarata (1940-2012) on the 10th Anniversary of his passing. The Comarata Family has a rich history they trace back to the year 1732 in the region of Termini Imerese, Palermo, Sicily.
