About the Cover – pictured on the bulletin cover is the Holy Family of Jesus, Mary, and Joseph Shrine. These statues are a memorial gift from the Maroon family in honor of their mother, Rose, who often reminded her family that they had an obligation to be holy as was the Holy Family. Fr. Don Maroon, our pastor from 1987-1999, purchased these two statues as a young priest from Columbus’ Our Lady of Peace Church, where he was first assigned. He donated them to St. Augustine Church in New Straitsville, the Maroon family’s home parish. Years later, when that church was closed and slated to be razed, the Maroon family was able to take possession of them again. Subsequently, they found their way to us as a gift for the newly-built St. Patrick Parish Center. Parishioner Mclaren Rogerson was commissioned to embellish the Holy Family Shrine. She united the two separate statues into one entity by creating a halo that encompassed the entirety of both statues. She drew upon the neo-Gothic architecture of the church to create an arch-shaped halo with the intricacy of Renaissance halos. Look closely and you’ll see that within the circles there are three-leafed shamrock-like shapes that tie back to St. Patrick and the Holy Trinity. Along with divine beauty, natural beauty is incorporated into this backdrop for the Holy Family by the inclusion of flowers. The white Madonna lilies named for Our Lady are also a symbol of St. Joseph. The purple irises are a symbol of the family values of wisdom, respect, and loyalty. The small white flowers of Lily of the Valley are the happy tears of the Virgin Mary. Lastly, the Virginia Cowslip is a symbol of divinity. Mclaren wrote, “Overall, I wanted the Holy Family statues to be complemented by the divine and natural so those looking at it can get in the mindset to follow the prayer written above: 'Holy Family, Model of Christian Families, Pray For Us.'”
October is Respect Life Month – The 8th Annual Madison County March for Life will take place on Thursday, October 7th, the Feast of Our Lady of the Holy Rosary.

TWENTY-SEVENTH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME OCTOBER 3, 2021
Message from Fr. HinterschiedOctober is a beautiful month of the faith! The autumn season manifests itself with wonderful colors, pleasant temperatures, and outdoor enjoyment. Our routines are now more established and in full swing. The celebrations of the Church for this month are also wonderful and unique. They include feasts of some of the most popular saints: Therese the Little Flower, Francis of Assisi and Teresa of Avila.
The feasts in October also include two of our most popular devotions, the Holy Rosary on October 7 and the Guardian Angels on October 2. We will have multiple opportunities to pray “Our Lady’s Chaplet” together; please plan accordingly. Every person has a guardian angel assigned to them and we should show devout gratitude to God for placing angels at our service. Having a guardian should give us confidence during all of life’s difficulties. Know the “Angel of God” prayer and pray it often. There’s a pious custom of families praying it at both their communal morning and evening prayers or after the Angelus.
Last, but not least, All Hallows’ Eve or “Halloween” heralds the end of October and the beginning of November and celebrates the Communion of Saints, especially the Church Suffering (the Poor Souls in Purgatory) and the Church Triumphant (the Glorious Saints in Heaven.
Let’s make this a glorious October, filled with prayer, companionship (including our heavenly friends), and feasting on the goodness of God’s many lavish gifts!
Real Presence, Real Future Fall Parish Consultation Sessions – In August, we saw results for our parish from the Disciples Makers Index, which was a canvassing last winter of St. Patrick to discover trends, strengths, and challenges for our parish. All parishes of the Diocese of Columbus did this to help understand diocesan trends, strengths, and challenges. Bishop Brennan has asked all of us to give our input to assist him as decisions are made for the future planning of the diocese. There are two dates for St. Patrick’s consultation sessions. They are Zoom meetings on either Monday, October 25, 6:30-8:30 p.m. or Wednesday, October 27, 6:30-8:30 p.m. Each meeting will be presenting the same information. You may register for these meetings to attend from home by logging onto www.realpresencerealfuture.org. If you prefer, we will also be gathering live in the parish center for the Zoom meetings. All registrants will receive a link to the recording via email after the sessions. The consultation will continue through 2022. Bishop Brennan assures us that no decision has been made regarding any parish and none will be made until feedback is gathered directly from parishioners through the consultation process. Please participate and invite other to do the same.
Directory – Michelle Horn is set up for Directory pictures Thursday, October 7. To sign up, see sheet in the connecting hallway.

Bishop Brennan – September 29, 6:00 a.m. The Holy See in Rome announced that Bishop Brennan will become the eighth bishop of the Diocese of Brooklyn, New York. He will continue to serve the Diocese of Columbus as the apostolic administrator until November 30, when he is installed as Bishop of the Diocese of Brooklyn. If a new bishop for the Diocese of Columbus is not named by then, the diocesan College of Consultors will elect an administrator until a new bishop is installed. Although Bishop Brennan has been our shepherd for just 2 ½ years, he has made a tremendous impact on our diocese. We are grateful for the time that we shared with him and for the many ways in which he cared for his priests and the people of the Diocese of Columbus. As diocesan staff, it has been our honor to serve him. We commit ourselves to continuing the good work that he began, and we trust in the guidance of the Holy Spirit to carry us through times of transition. – Mr. Matthew Schlater.

Our St. Patrick School is having its 12th annual Walk-A-Thon on Thursday, October 14th from 12:45pm to 3:00pm. All parishioners are
invited to support this fundraiser. The first eleven Walk-A-Thons were very successful and the school sincerely appreciates the parish’s support for those events. One major advantage of a Walk-A-Thon is the fact that every bit of the money collected and the effort expended are for the sole benefit of the school. In addition, this is a fundraiser in which the students themselves play an active role. Students will be collecting donations from family, friends and neighbors. On the afternoon of Walk-A-Thon day, students will walk for two hours over a one-half mile course set up on the school grounds. The Walk-A-Thon is a fun, healthy way for the students to help raise funds for their school. If you are interested in supporting the Walk-A-Thon, please send a check made payable to:
St. Patrick School Walk-A-Thon
c/o: Mrs. Deborah Adamczak 226 Elm St.
London, OH 43140
Or, your donation can be placed in an envelope marked Walk-A-Thon and placed in the collection basket at any weekend Mass preceding the Walk-A-Thon. All of your contributions from this collection will be equally credited to each of the school’s students (unless otherwise noted on the check). As always, the parish’s generosity is greatly appreciated by all the families making the sacrifices necessary to put their children through St. Patrick School. With your on-going support, we can continue to make the Saint Patrick School something of which the entire parish can be proud. Thank you for supporting our school.
