Dear Parishioners and Friends of St. Louis, King of France Parish,

As fall settles in upon us, and the Cleveland Indians have clinched a division spot (yipee)!, here’s hoping that everyone is doing well. even though the temperatures have dropped a bit, there has still been plentiful sunshine on most days for us to savor.

Our newly-formed Advisory Board met for the first time on Tuesday, August 23 at 7pm in the dining room of the parish rectory. Among the items of discussion were parish finances and budgets, worship aids for Sunday/weekday Masses, and insurance coverage on the parish campus. One result was the determination of a more detailed parish budget as distinct from the rather fluid type which has been customary to date. Another objective is the continuation of some experimentation with worship aids since the current Pew Missal, though an impressive appearance, is not particularly user-friendly nor does it contain any specific offertory hymns for the Masses with music. As a result, we will return to the Seasonal Missalette large print since the scripture readings are incorporated in the context of the Mass and the hymn selections offer plentiful options. Our next Advisory Board meeting is scheduled for Monday, October 17.

That’s all for now. God Bless and I’m here for you!

Fr. Joe Hurtuk, SM

People Around The Church Asking for Money

The police recommend that when you are confronted by a person asking you for money, a very good response is to immediately say “no” and to keep moving. If the person persists, repeat your response of “no” but briefly communicate to them that you will make a contribution to help support the work of Catholic Charities or the Union Gospel Mission or the Naomi Center and will pray for them. Individuals in need should be referred to these places. Finally if you feel threatened in any way and you are carrying your cell phone, call 911 and report the incident. At no time should you ever reach into your wallet or purse.

Tenth Street Has Changed

The City of St. Paul has changed Tenth Street into a one-way street beginning at Jackson Street and going west to Cedar. There will be designated bike lanes on the south side of 10th street as well. Therefore any parking that was allowed on the south side of 10th street will no longer exist. The fire department has also graciously allowed parking beginning at 9:00am daily on the north-side of 10th street. Please do not park in this area before 9:00am as the fire department has pick up and   drop offs of personnel from 6:00am to 9:00am daily.

Let us remember we are in the Holy Presence of God

Part of the time we spend before and after Mass, can be for some of us, greeting friends and acquaintances. We should never forget that we are in the House of God and that numerous people come to pray quietly before and after Mass and in some cases both. Let’s do our best to keep our voices always to a whisper remembering we are in the holy presence of God.
