All are Welcome!
October 22, 2020
Let us ask for the intercession of St. John Paul II, whose feast day is today in the Catholic Church, to help us take comfort in the living God:
It is Jesus in fact that you seek when you dream of happiness; he is waiting for you when nothing else you find satisfies you; he is the beauty to which you are so attracted; it is he who provokes you with that thirst for fullness that will not let you settle for compromise; it is he who urges you to shed the masks of a false life; it is he who reads in your hearts your most genuine choices, the choices that others try to stifle" (St. John Paul II, World Youth Day Vigil of Prayer [August 19, 2000], no. 5).
October 20, 2020-Almighty God, Father of all nations, for freedom you have set us free in Christ Jesus (Gal 5:1). We praise and bless you for the gift of religious liberty, the foundation of human rights, justice, and the common good. Grant to our leaders the wisdom to protect and promote our liberties; by your grace may we have the courage to defend them, for ourselves and for all who live in this blessed land. We ask this through the intercession of Mary Immaculate, our patroness, and in the name of your Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God for ever and ever. Amen.
U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, Committee for Religious Liberty, 201
October 15, 2020-Let nothing ever trouble you, let nothing make you afraid. All things pass away. God never changes. Patience obtains everything. God alone is enough.
Words of wisdom from today's saint, St. Teresa of Avila
October 8, 2020-I’m sorry you may have lost your power yesterday, with no television or internet, and may still be without it. Turn this “problem” into a spiritual advantage: why not try praying the rosary, quietly before the Lord?
What a gift from God in honor of the memorial of Our Lady of the Rosary (October 7).
October 3, 2020 - We continue our prayers as a family of faith for all those affected by this virus, including our President and First Lady. May they stay close to the Lord as they recuperate. We pray also for all health care professionals and emergency personnel, that God will keep them safe as they assist those who are ill. Mane nobiscum, Domine: Remain with us, Lord (cf. Luke 24:29).

A BEQUEST FROM FR. URBAN
Please pray for the repose of the soul of our former pastor, Fr. Carl A. Urban, who died on March 14, 2020. Fr. Urban bequeathed a chalice and paten to St. Adalbert Parish upon falling asleep in the Lord. This chalice and paten, received on April 22, was a gift to Father from his family members on the occasion of his twenty-fifth anniversary of priesthood ordination. At a later time, our community will gather for the celebration of the Eucharist to remember God's gift to us through his servant, Fr. Urban. We will not use Father's chalice and paten until this memorial Mass. God's peace to you,
