The Funeral Sacristan Ministry

WE NEED YOUR HELP!

The Funeral Sacristan Ministry

Mission Statement: This ministry is comprised of individuals who assist, prior to and during each Funeral Mass, by setting up the Sacristy and church with the necessary items for the celebration of the Funeral Mass.

What Does this Ministry Do?: The Funeral Sacristan welcomes the bereaved family members to the church and assists them as necessary with special requests. They are hospitality ministers as well for each funeral. They work with the funeral home representatives to make the occasion proceed as smoothly and solemnly as possible. There are occasions when the Funeral Sacristan will proclaim the readings for the family, assist the celebrant in administering the Body and Blood of Christ, and perform other duties as requested.

It is an act of love to be there for anyone who is suffering and hurting. Parishioners are invited and encouraged to volunteer with this very special ministry.  Training will be provided.  Please contact the parish office if you feel you are called to assist our parish as a Funeral Sacristan.

 

 
St. Sebastian Home Visitors

The members of the Christian Service Committee are excited to introduce our latest project:
visiting the home-bound and bringing them Holy Communion. If you have a family member or know of someone in the parish who needs to have someone bring Communion to them at home and who would also enjoy a visit from one of our Home Visitor volunteers, please write their name on a piece of paper along with their address and phone number and place it in the Sunday collection basket. It will then be passed along to the office. Also if you are interested in becoming
a St. Sebastian Home Visitor, please call the office or Roseann Gómez at 313.792.0617.

God Bless and Thank You
Roseann Gómez and the
Christian Service Committee.

 
St. Sebastian annual Giving Tree

Wow, can you believe Christmas is just around the corner? And this week-end we begin our annual Giving Tree Program. As always, the Christmas tree is set up near the altar and is covered with different colored angels. Each color represents the gender and some the age groups of someone in our parish family that needs a helping hand to bring the joy and love of Christmas into their homes and to their families.
Each angel has a sticker with a specific gift request written on it. You are asked to return your gift to church under the tree UNWRAPPED no later than December 3rd. Please make sure the paper angel from the tree is securely attached.
Color codes for the Angels are as follows:

Red -  Adult/Female

Green -  Adult/Male
Pink - Child/Female
Blue - Child/Male
White - Infant
Yellow - Gift Card

As always, the love shown through the generosity of our wonderful family here at St. Sebastian is greatly appreciated. It’s wonderful to see how your help makes the holidays brighter for our fellow brothers and sisters. May God always bless you.
Please note-church WILL NOT be open on Saturday, November 18th for the Father Solanus Benediction celebration.

Reading 1 Is 35:1-10

The desert and the parched land will exult;
the steppe will rejoice and bloom.
They will bloom with abundant flowers,
and rejoice with joyful song.
The glory of Lebanon will be given to them,
the splendor of Carmel and Sharon;
They will see the glory of the LORD,
the splendor of our God.
Strengthen the hands that are feeble,
make firm the knees that are weak,
Say to those whose hearts are frightened:
Be strong, fear not!
Here is your God,
he comes with vindication;
With divine recompense
he comes to save you.
Then will the eyes of the blind be opened,
the ears of the deaf be cleared;
Then will the lame leap like a stag,
then the tongue of the mute will sing.

Streams will burst forth in the desert,
and rivers in the steppe.
The burning sands will become pools,
and the thirsty ground, springs of water;
The abode where jackals lurk
will be a marsh for the reed and papyrus.
A highway will be there,
called the holy way;
No one unclean may pass over it,
nor fools go astray on it.
No lion will be there,
nor beast of prey go up to be met upon it.
It is for those with a journey to make,
and on it the redeemed will walk.
Those whom the LORD has ransomed will return
and enter Zion singing,
crowned with everlasting joy;
They will meet with joy and gladness,
sorrow and mourning will flee.

Responsorial Psalm Ps 85:9ab and 10, 11-12, 13-14

R. (Isaiah 35:4f) Our God will come to save us!
I will hear what God proclaims;
the LORD –for he proclaims peace to his people.
Near indeed is his salvation to those who fear him,
glory dwelling in our land.
R. Our God will come to save us!
Kindness and truth shall meet;
justice and peace shall kiss.
Truth shall spring out of the earth,
and justice shall look down from heaven.
R. Our God will come to save us!
The LORD himself will give his benefits;
our land shall yield its increase.
Justice shall walk before him,
and salvation, along the way of his steps.
R. Our God will come to save us!

Alleluia

R. Alleluia, alleluia.
Behold the king will come, the Lord of the earth,
and he himself will lift the yoke of our captivity.
R. Alleluia, alleluia.

Gospel Lk 5:17-26

One day as Jesus was teaching,
Pharisees and teachers of the law,
who had come from every village of Galilee and Judea and Jerusalem,
were sitting there,
and the power of the Lord was with him for healing.
And some men brought on a stretcher a man who was paralyzed;
they were trying to bring him in and set him in his presence.
But not finding a way to bring him in because of the crowd,
they went up on the roof
and lowered him on the stretcher through the tiles
into the middle in front of Jesus.
When Jesus saw their faith, he said,
"As for you, your sins are forgiven."

Then the scribes and Pharisees began to ask themselves,
"Who is this who speaks blasphemies?
Who but God alone can forgive sins?"
Jesus knew their thoughts and said to them in reply,
"What are you thinking in your hearts?
Which is easier, to say, 'Your sins are forgiven,'
or to say, 'Rise and walk'?
But that you may know
that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins"–
he said to the one who was paralyzed,
"I say to you, rise, pick up your stretcher, and go home."

He stood up immediately before them,
picked up what he had been lying on,
and went home, glorifying God.
Then astonishment seized them all and they glorified God,
and, struck with awe, they said,
"We have seen incredible things today."
