Mission Statement
The Mission of St. Helena’s and St. Mary’s parish is to use the closeness of our community to promote
the proclamation of the Good News, the beauty and richness of celebration, and the sharing of ourselves
in service to God’s people. Believing in the equality of all within Christ’s family, we strive to have all
people find their ministry in the church. We realize the importance of religious education to all members
of the parish in helping them answer the call of Christ, to grow as ministers to our own Parish and to
the world community.

From the La Salette Shrine Director's Desk
As we continue our faith journey in this Holy Year
of Mercy it is important to realize we are coming to
the end of our travels. Sunday, November 20th, is the
Feast of Our Lord Jesus Christ, King of the
Universe. That marks the end of our Liturgical Year
for 2016. The following Sunday is the First Sunday of
Advent which begins a new liturgical year.
I do not know what is on the mind of Our Holy
Father, Pope Francis. However I do know I am very
grateful for his decision to make this year a holy year
as we put in focus God's mercy and compassion.
I see a connection between the Scripture readings
of today which puts emphasis on gratitude, with this
year's theme of compassion. It is clear that a grateful
heart is also a compassionate heart and vice versa.
In the gospel we see Jesus having great
compassion for the ten lepers. He was well aware that
leprosy was not only a physical illness but also
emotionally it separated the leper from his own
family and those that loved him. This was because it
was a very contagious disease. As one commentary on
this gospel states: "Jesus may have been the first one
to look upon them, not as freaks and monsters, but as
human beings. We crave that gaze."
We all know the story. "And one of them,
realizing he had been healed, returned, glorifying God
in a loud voice. And he fell at the feet of Jesus and
thanked him. He was a Samaritan." This man had a
double curse put upon him. He was avoided by the
crowds because he was a leper and because he was a
"foreigner" a Samaritan.
To love as Jesus has first loved us is to see that
connection between compassion and thankfulness. In
both virtues, we need an attitude of looking outward to
the others, be it God or another person. To be turned
inward will only lead to ingratitude and hardness of
heart. May we experience deep in our own hearts what
Jesus said to the man filled with gratitude: "Stand up
and go; your faith has saved you".
As the Festival of Lights begins at the end of
November, we could use several volunteers now to
help us testing the lights, putting up the displays on
the hillside, and working in the cafeteria to serve the
many visitors. If you are interested, please give your
name and your phone number to me or to Brother
David in the Gift Shop. Thank you for your spirit of
generosity.
