ST. FRANCIS AWARD RECIPIENTS: JENNY AND ERNIE CASAUS
Congratulations to Ernie and Jennie Casaus, our 2016 recipients of the St. Francis Award. Ernie and Jennie were honored this week at a Mass at the cathedral in Santa Fe. This loving couple was chosen for their exemplary service to God and to community in our Holy Name Society. Ernie and Jennie lead Holy Name’s monthly Donut Sundays, and those Sundays are always bookended by their care and dedication. They arrive very early in the morning to set up tables and chairs and to make coffee and punch. They remain long after parishioners have left, guiding and assisting with cleanup efforts. Ernie and Jennie show leadership through their devoted service to others. All God’s blessings to them!
RELIGIOUS EDUCATION TUITION DEADLINE
Our Religious Education night school program is going strong. Students are diligently studying, praying and singing songs of praises and thanksgiving! As we prepare now for 1st Reconciliation services and Advent, our Pastor Fr. Jerry Mueller has asked that we remind all families participating in the Religious Education night school that the tuition registration fee is due this month. For those families who have not yet paid this fee in full, the deadline to pay tuition registration fee is Wednesday, October 19th

Suggested donation: $5.00 for each person enrolled.
ST CHARLES 40 DAYS FOR LIFE
Based on data from the World Health Organization and the Guttmacher Institute, abortion is the leading cause of death in the world, ending more lives than cardiovascular disease, cancer, AIDS, war, hunger ... or any other cause. Please join us as fellow St. Charles parishioners pray peacefully for an end to abortion! You can help make a difference! Our Parish will stand for life this Friday, October 14th at Planned Parenthood, 701 San Mateo NE, Albuquerque NM 87106. Together WE CAN make a difference.
ANNUAL CATHOLIC APPEAL: HELP US REACH OUR GOAL!
Our parish goal this year is 30% percent participation. Currently we are at 18% participation. Thank you to all our families who have already pledged! To reach our participation goal, we need just SIXTY-SEVEN more families to pledge by December. Be one of the SIXTY-SEVEN! Stop by the Volunteer table after Mass or contact the Parish Office, and we’ll help you with a pledge card. Give what you can—it is your participation which is most important. Together, we can do great things!
