Thirty-Third Sunday in Ordinary Time November 16-17, 2019 From the Desk of Monsignor Dan
Scripture - 33rd Sunday in Ordinary Time
Reflection Jesus reminds the disciples — and us — of his con- stant presence. “I myself shall give you a wisdom in speaking.” In other Gospel passages, Jesus promises and sends the Holy Spirit upon his followers. The presence of God is real in our lives, no matter what trials come our way. It’s tempting to be distracted or dismayed by natural destruction and moral evil in the world. But the Church has weathered greater storms. The sacredness of the human person endures. We can have hope! This day and every day, we can persevere in hope and trust in God. Thoughts for the Week Response to our annual volunteer commitment weekend recently is very encouraging and makes for some wonderful opportunities in the coming year here at St. Stephen’s. Your time and talent are integral to the vitality of our parish. When your generous sharing of these precious personal gifts takes shape in our various ministries, the Holy Spirit is made manifest as the source of God’s grace in all that we do and all that we are as the Body of Christ here and now. Please help our parish council members and me become even more aware with your thoughts on how the mission of our parish can become ever more active in meeting the needs of its members. Thank you to our council members and Shelley Wellnitz for our recent successful volunteer update. Next weekend, the Feast of Christ the King, marks the end of our Church year. Booklets are available for all parishioners with daily meditations for the upcoming season of Advent. God bless you, Msgr. Dan Ganshert

TEC Retreat #179 Coming to St. Cecilia, Wisconsin Dells: The date is December 27-29 with a Friday noon start. TEC (Together Encountering Christ) is an intergenerational movement of the Catholic Church especially designed to help meet the spiritual needs of Catholic Christians. Although it is an amazing experience for anyone 15 years of age or older, it can be especially rewarding for those youth who are preparing for or have been recently Con- firmed and those adults in the RCIA program and those who are actively seeking to become stronger in our Catholic Faith. This is also an invitation for those who have already experienced a TEC to come and help by working. Fr. Eric Sternberg will be the Spiritual Director and Steve Davies is the Director (608.220.2088
