    God is happiness. God is happiness (beatitude) and he made us happily out of happiness for happiness. The theme of today’s reading has to do with renovating one’s moral life and getting things in order, going back to priorities, putting away the bad and turning toward the good. But

    another way to say all that is to say God is calling us away from misery and back to happiness. One of the things that breeds unhappiness is a spirit of entitlement or in other words the attitude that life owes us something. It is the case that sometimes in particular circumstances, we are indeed owed this or that - but ultimately life owes us nothing. We come into this world with nothing and everything we have is a gift. Our health is really not something we can build for example. We have it, and although we might cherish it, cultivate it and maintain it well - it really is just a gift. Everything else we ever did or will do depends on this gift and so all is gift. We really only become happy when we realize that we are creatures, we are created, and we have a creator. We only really become just and at peace when we have that habit as a creature of joining with all creation in thanking him. God calls us to do this as individuals everyday, each in our own way, and communally as families in the home, and in the most excellent way with the weekly rhythm of Sunday Mass. This is where we give him thanks for everything, for making us and saving us in Christ his Son. This is when we are fulfilled; happy; at peace and harmony with God, ourselves, the world.

    This Christmas, the Sunday celebration and the Christmas celebrations are almost overlapping. It becomes a call to pray more. We are called to stop and pray more in this busy world. Let us not grow slack but rather rejoice that God, through our Mother the Church, calls us to the discipline of

    never wavering from the duty to come together and give God thanks and praise in an unbroken rhythm that is the ultimate priority of our lives. When we have that spirit of obedience, docility, and grit in following the Lord’s commands, we find the Spirit of the world, miserable and disappointing as it is, disappears - and the hope of eternal salvation dawns in our hearts. Looking forward to praying with you all in an ever renewed effort bolstered by God’s mercy, to be faithful in all that we do and to be happy. Communion

    "With the oncoming of flu season, we are discontinuing the reception of Holy Communion from the cup beginning October 29. We will resume Communion under both kinds during Holy Week 2018.”

    Christmas Flowers and Arrangements for The Church

    Environment

    If you would like to make a monetary donation for Christmas Flowers and arrangements for the inside of the Church in memory of a loved one/special intention, please write the name of the person to be remembered/intention and who is making the request. Please write legibly as it is sometimes hard to read the names. Please place these intentions in the basket or drop them off at the Rectory by December15th. Donation is $15.00. ~Mary Best A Big Thank You to Charlotte Brown for all the beautiful Advent/Christmas wreaths and to Patti & Dave LeBlanc for setting up and decorating the Christmas tree. ~Sue Ann Woolfrey Our Parish Mission Trip will be going to Oil City, Pennsylvania, July 22-28, 2018. The trip is open to all students entering grades 9-12 in the fall of 2018, so that includes current 8th graders. We will once again be going through Catholic Heart WorkCamp, whose mission is “to foster the Catholic Faith of each participant through the sacraments, prayer and involvement in social service.” This promises to be an inspirational and fun week where you’ll live your Faith by helping local residents with anything from painting or gardening to home repair or even child care, while being strengthened in your Faith through daily Mass, amazing music and a lively and motivational evening program. It will also be a wonderful opportunity to make friends from around the country and within our own collaborative. There will be an informational meeting on Monday, November 27th, at 7pm in the St. Joseph Church hall in Pepperell, so I invite you all to attend. There will be more information available

    in the bulletin, including the email address of the trip organizer, who will be glad to answer any questions you might have. ~ Tom Fitzpatrick

    MASS

    Learning about our faith must be accompanied with the practice of the faith! That means regular Mass attendance. Please be sure you are participating in weekly MASS! See you there!

    Our offertory this past weekend was: $4,040.00 Our 2nd collection for mortgage was: $1,439.00 Our 2nd collection for next weekend is for our

    utilities. As 2017 draws to a close, you may want to start thinking now about your year-end taxes. Perhaps a donation to St. John’s could help your bottom line, or it could help St. John’s as we head into the coldest & snowiest months of the year (those Unitil bills really add up). Please remember St. John’s during this holiday season. Did you know that the IRS requires that each time you make a one-time donation of $250 or more to St. John’s we must provide you a written acknowledgement of this donation? Well, fear not! Anytime you make a donation of this amount or larger, you will automatically receive a Tax Donation letter in January, from St. John’s noting this one-time donation, as well as any other donations that you have made throughout the year. So, if you put $25/week in your offertory envelope, and then decided to send in a check for $1,000 for our utility collection, as you had to defrost your windshield on Sunday morning just to get to church and thought about how much that bill might be for St John’s, you will automatically receive a letter in mid-January. Or, are you starting to estimate your 2017 taxes and realize that a one-time donation to St. John’s just might be a very smart financial move? We would love to help you solve that problem. Send us a donation – for the mortgage, the utilities or whatever you would like. If your donation is $250 or more, we will automatically, no request needed, send you the required information in January for your taxes. In any event, even if you do not send in a single donation of $250 or more, we will send you out, upon request, a tax donation letter. We can email, mail it or you can pick it up from the rectory. You just need to ask. However, you do need to be making your weekly donations via the offertory envelopes, Online Giving or through Online Banking / BillPay for us to send you out this statement. Loose cash and checks placed in the offertory basket are not counted – so please use an envelope. Now might be a great time to set up online giving in preparation for your taxes next year. Just go to our website: TownsendCatholic.org and scroll to the bottom of the site until you see the icon for Online Giving. Click on that and you are on your way to helping support St. John’s. Thank you for your generosity!

    Meet Father Cusack – Embracing his vocation, embracing God’s peopleFather Anthony Cusack grappled with his vocation as a young man. After hearing God’s call to the priesthood, he embraced a life of service to every person placed before him in ministry.

    Recognizing the growing needs of ethnic communities, Father Anthony broadened his pastoral skills by learning to celebrate Mass in both Spanish and Vietnamese. This enabled him to accept his �rst assignment at St. Ambrose and St. Mark Parishes in 2015.

    Today, Father Anthony ministers in the heart of Dorchester. He engages the community in three very di�erent languages. When summarizing his responsibilities, he describes personifying Christ: “The duty of the priest is, I think, to be Jesus to every single person he meets.”

    To help ensure priests like Father Anthony receive essential care as they live out their vocation, please support the Clergy Health and Retirement Trust through the special collection this Christmas.
