A Reflection for the 29th Sunday in Ordinary Time

PARISH OFFICE 763-421-2471
"Whoever wishes to be great among you will be your servant." In the
wake of James and John's vanity, Jesus offers this directive. These two
apostles had been thinking in terms of prominence, glory, and worldly
honor. They wanted their association with Jesus to lead to public recognition and respect as they took their places at his right and left. But
Jesus put them in their place.
Director, Bernie Leach 763-712-7435
Associate, Barbara Ferron 763-712-7458
Associate/School Liturgy Coordinator, Terri Renner
763-712-7459
As was typical of so many of his teachings, Jesus upset the status quo.
He told his followers that, although "great ones make their authority
over them felt ... it shall not be so among you." Then, he put forward this
clear image of the servant leader: "Whoever wishes to be first among
you will be the
slave of all."
As followers of
Christ, this instruction applies
to us as well. We
are called to the
humility of service
that seeks neither
personal glory nor
gain. We are called
to use what authority we may have in the world for the benefit of our brothers and
sisters, not for the sake of stroking our own egos. It's easy to pat ourselves on the back for the good works that we do--to think that we are
superior Christians, that others owe us a debt of gratitude, or that our
names should be engraved on a public placard in some noteworthy
hall. But Jesus calls us to a different standard--the one he himself exemplified through his life of service.
At the same time, today's Gospel gives us cause to meditate upon our
association with Jesus and what we hope to get out of it. Why are we
Christian? Are we only after the glory of heaven? Are we afraid to publicly profess our faith when it might hurt our reputation? Or are we in
this for the love of the Lord, who came into this world "to serve and to
give his life as a ransom" for us?
Thank You

Lights of Love to Be Displayed During November
Lights of Love has been a tradition at St. Stephen’s since 1992. It has
been a wonderful way to remember and pray for loved ones who have
passed away, while raising funds for the parish’s charity account. With
Lights of Love we remember the way these special individuals let their
light shine before us in the past (Mt. 5:16) and pray that they may now
enjoy everlasting light.
This venerable tradition will take place the month of November, a month
the Catholic Church has always set aside for remembering those who
have gone before us. The month of November begins with All Saints Day
and All Souls Day for this very reason.
Throughout the month of November, the lights will be artfully displayed
behind the statue of St. Stephen, our patron saint. As the light fades
outside, the lights of remembrance for our loved ones will grow in that
beautiful corner of our Worship space.
Those who are interested in reserving one or more lights are invited to
complete the form in the bulletin and return it to the parish office any
time now, with a final deadline of November 9. The minimum donation
is $10.00 per name. The funds generated by this worthwhile project will
be set aside for outreach to those who are in need.
As names are turned in, they will be recorded on sheets that will be
placed near the St. Stephen statue and the number of lights behind St.
Stephen will reflect the number of names each week. May our loved
ones who have gone before us in death share Christ’s victory and enjoy
forever the vision of his glory.

Faith Formation
Allow Mary to Lead You to the
“Divine Mercy” of Her Son
First Reconciliation
Presentations
This December 8, you have a very special opportunity to seek the Divine
Mercy of God. Our Holy Father, Pope Francis, will be declaring the beginning of the Jubilee Year of Mercy this December 8, on the feast day
of The Immaculate Conception. This is no accidental date. Our Lady’s
special role in salvation history is to bring all of us
to the Mercy of Her Son.
Students preparing for First Reconciliation will attend a presentation either Tuesday, November
3, or Wednesday, November 4,
from 6:50-7:25 p.m. in FCC 8
and 9. At least one parent and
the student should attend ONE
of these presentations. For more
information, please contact Emilie Bauer at [email protected], 763-712-7430.
You are invited to participate in a six week group
retreat / study with the book 33 Days to Morning
Glory by Father Michael Gaitley. The retreat will
prepare you for Marian Consecration this December 8. Consecration to Jesus through Mary gives
our Holy Mother permission, with the guidance
of the Holy Spirit, to assist us on our spiritual journey in a very powerful way.
This consecration, intersecting this Holy Feast
Day and the Pope’s declaration of the Jubilee Year of Mercy, is a powerful way to commit yourself more deeply and personally to Our Lord
Jesus Christ.
If you have been looking for a way to go deeper into your faith, if you
have ever wondered if it’s really possible to grow in holiness, if you want
to experience the motherly care of our Spiritual Mother, Mary, as Christ
intended when He gave her to us from the cross, if you want to make the
most of this blessed and grace filled year, please join us.
Two groups will be offered:
Monday evenings: November 2 – December 7, from 6:30-8:00 p.m.
Tuesday mornings: November 3 – December 8, from 9:00-10:30 a.m.
To register and order materials, please call Kathy (763-755-6131) or
Robin (763-421-0333) by October 20.
High School Youth Ministry Events
The Refuge: October 21, 6-8:00 p.m.
A time to drop in for games, faith sharing, hanging out and learning from each
other.

Fr. Joe Kuharski's
Podcast Picks
Fr. Joe is excited about two Catholic podcasts started up by some
friends and would like to share
them.
One podcast was just launched in
Rome this summer, called “Catholic Bytes”. It consists of 7-9 minute
segments in which a seminarian
or student priest is interviewed
about a topic of faith related to
their specialized field of study.
Perfect for busy Catholics who
want solid Catholic content on
the go.
http://catholicbytespodcast.
com/
The other podcast is done by
priests in Denver, and has been
very successful: “Catholic Stuff
You Should Know.” It covers a
wide-range of both prominent
and obscure Catholic topics in
a light-hearted manner. These
ones are usually at least a half an
hour, but are often very funny
and have gotten very high ratings on iTunes.

Students Study Minnesota History
Mrs. Ashley Widmyer,
Fifth Grade Teacher
Fifth graders at St. Stephen’s School have begun studying Minnesota
History. Students read about Lake Itasca, the Mayo Clinic, and the many
inventions that originated from Minnesota. In addition to these readings, students had the opportunity to create their own license plate. The
students had a great time using their imaginations to create their plates.
Mission Statement
St. Stephen’s Catholic School is a caring
Christian community that nourishes
spiritual development and academic
excellence.
Philosophy
St. Stephen’s Catholic School integrates
faith with academics to prepare students
to make solid Christian choices. It is an
accredited, private school, comprised
of pre-school, elementary, and middle
school levels.
Faith: As a vital part of the parish
community, we educate students in a
Catholic atmosphere enriched by the
Gospel messages of peace and justice.
The spiritual development of students is
the primary goal. The school recognizes
that a person's faith is formed by living
out that faith in community through
prayer, worship, service and study; and
grounded in our Catholic tradition.
Academics: In partnership with their
family, each student is encouraged and
directed to reach his or her potential.
Our academic program emphasizes mastery of the basics, academic excellence,
and a variety of extracurricular activities.
The school prepares students to be fully
equipped for their next level of academic
achievement.
Community: The school seeks to provide
a safe and trusting learning environment
where each student is valued and challenged to grow spiritually, academically,
emotionally, socially, and physically.

Update Your Email – Help the Parish Save Money!
In an effort to be the best stewards of our financial resources, St. Stephen’s is working to update family email addresses in our database. For
those of you who work with email and prefer not to receive a flood of
paper in the mail every day, please provide your preferred email(s) to
the parish office.
We will be using more email communication regarding parish events,
faith formation programs/classes, stewardship information, volunteer
opportunities, etc.
Please consider being part of the paperless movement by providing the
office with your email and notifying us of any changes.
St. Stephen’s Softball
Team Update
The St. Stephen’s team had a winning season, taking third place in
the Christian Women’s Softball
League. Playing this year were
Julie Bash, Maureen Foy, Jolene
DeJarlais, Jane Rausch, Deb
Jones, Kathy Sautter, Jan Lokken, Molly Rausch, Rachel Matlon, Jackie Bortnem, Kelly Danzl,
Hannah Bortnem, Marty Young,
Dani Dean, Shawnte’ Kehn, Amber Kehn, Laura Hudson, Shannon Stewart, and Jacki Humphrey. The league has room for
at least one more team in 2016,
so if you’re interested in organizing a second softball team from
St. Stephen’s, contact Jan Lokken
(612-599-8887 or [email protected]
com) for more information. Players must be age 16 or older, nonparishioners are also allowed
on the roster, and games are on
Thursday nights in Andover. It’s
a great way to get to know other
women from our parish and from
other local churches!
A Thought to Ponder
A person’s rightful due is to be
treated as an object of love, not
as an object for use.

Stewardship Reflection
Stewardship takes on all shapes and sizes.
Many of us think that Stewardship
is all about giving money to the
church. That is just one facet of the
term. It also includes using our time
and varied talents, which comes in
all shapes and sizes to respond to
Christ’s invitation to discipleship.
Our recently formed Stewardship Commission invites and encourages
others to serve. The only requirement is your desire to serve. If interested in learning more about the purpose of this commission or any
other St. Stephens’ commission, please contact Monica Freeman (763421-2471).

Thank you to the Anoka Knights of Columbus Council 2018, especially
Al Kempf, for coordinating this ongoing project. And, thank you to all of
