October and Fall have arrived.
The leaves are turning and the weather has reminded us of what is to come. Hat, scarfs and mittens have come out of the closet, yet I await our Indian Summer and bit of warmer weather before the frost sets in.
October is known as the month of the Rosary and I encourage everyone to participate in a Rosary procession. The story of Fatima began 100 years ago in 1916. The archdiocese of St. Paul & Minneapolis will celebrate in two ways. See below.
OCT 2nd – Respect Life Sunday. “Moved By Mercy” is the theme of the Bishop’s respect life program.
OCT 7th –
Morning: Most Reverend Bishop Cozzens and the International President of the World Apostolate of Fatima’s, Children of the Eucharist, Young Missionaries of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, invites you in every village, country, and nation to join in the Children of the Eucharist Holy hour. Check out http://childrenoftheeucharist.org/ for more information.

We will begin assembling for the procession at 6:30 pm at the State Capitol Grounds on John Ireland and Dr. Martin Luther King Blvd. The procession will begin promptly at 7:00 pm. We will process from the State Capitol to the Cathedral.
At the Cathedral we will have a prayer service with Exposition and Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament followed by Benediction.
Those who cannot walk the Procession Route may go directly to the Cathedral to pray the Rosary with those who are in procession.

Respect Life Session: Follow-up & Homework
Students for Life of America and the Pilgrimage for Life – “The Prolife Generation”
Hope you enjoyed the Respect Life session at the State Convention with Maddie Schulte, the MN/WI Regional Coordinator for Students for Life of America. Her Winter Storm presentation was very engaging and helped us better understand what it means to be prolife on college and high school campuses. It was fun to see the photos from the snow mass along the Pennsylvania turnpike. And to hear firsthand from Maddie about her experiences going to the National March for Life in Washington, D.C. the past four years. You can learn more about Students for Life of America at their website: http://studentsforlife.org/. They welcome your financial and prayer support.
Catholic Healthcare Directive
Just a quick reminder to do your “homework” – spend 30 minutes reading the Catholic Healthcare Directive and guide with your loved ones. It explains Catholic teaching on end-of-life issues and helps you to make an informed decision about your care. Once completed, take it to a notary and have them signed. Then make copies for your healthcare providers – they can scan them into your electronic records so it’s always available for review if needed. (You can learn more online at http://www.mncc.org/advocacyarea/catholic-end-of-life-care-decisions/)
If you need additional copies of the directive and guide, you can download or print from the Minnesota Catholic Conference at these pages: http://www.mncc.org/wp-content/uploads/2012/02/11.1010-Minnesota-Catholic-Medical-Directive1.pdf and http://www.mncc.org/wp-content/uploads/2013/01/13.0128-Guide-to-Minnesota-Catholic-Medical-Directive1.pdf
Please continue to prayer for our country as the presidential, congressional and state legislative campaigns progress.
God bless you and your families!

Work is under way to plan an event you will enjoy. Our annual convention is the celebrated event and the convention would commence during the day as usual but Mass and the officer installation would be moved from the morning to the afternoon. Following Mass, the festivities will continue. A spot for the convention and celebration has not been determined. The State Board may host this event but event bids are being accepted. We are in need of photos from the past and any other old document that you would like to share.
Assessments were sent to all auxiliaries and to date some auxiliaries have returned the entire amount assessed. We thank you for your financial support of the celebration.
Your committee members are Jean Burnett, Nancy Mathewson, Mary Wick, Marilyn Jacobs and Ann Aeschliman. Please dig in your past and send items to one of the committee members.
