Families and the Gospel Luke 18:1-8
The widow in today’s gospel is praised for her PERSEVERANCE. In our homes perseverance is a critical ingredient to resolving differences and teaching lessons and skills to children. Perseverance is always an act of faith in the goodness of the other person.

CEMETERY UPDATE As we are approaching the celebration of All Souls (November 2) and we remember and pray for our deceased relatives and friends we are also reminded of the fact that one day we will need a burial spot where our earthly remains will be laid to rest. We are blessed with two cemeteries where we can be buried: Saint Luke in Sinking Valley and Oak Grove in Tyrone. I would like to let you know that the price for the privilege of burial (including perpetual care) in a plot of ground (or what has been referred to as buying a cemetery plot) in either of these cemeteries will increase from $350 to $400 starting January 1, 2020. If interested, please stop at the church office and make arrangements. Father Jozef
