A NEW ADDITION TO OUR PARISH CAMPUS In the course of just a few hours last Saturday morning a large new building rose up next to the gymnasium behind the Religious Education Center to provide storage for all the tables and chairs that are used for special occasions like our 40th anniversary covered dish luncheon last Sunday. Up until now the only storage was along the walls of the gym when it was being used for sports events. This new facility is located in an area that is hardly seen but it can be viewed from our Prayer Garden. The size of it is 14 x 32 feet providing ample but necessary storage space. It is a pre-fab construction and it rests on a concrete base. The best part is that it is already paid for. Monsignor Joseph O'Connell, our former pastor, left $10,000 in his will to be used to enhance the Religious Education Center. This new addition certainly does that and we are grateful to Monsignor O'Connell for remembering us and we continue to remember him in our prayers.

November 8, 2009 Dear Parishioners, Isn't it true that we all want to be left alone but are not happy when we are? Isn't it just as true that we also want to belong, not to be left out and to be part of the action. Within the Catholic community we not only belong to God and partake in His life but we are truly brothers and sisters of one another sharing as members in the one Body of Christ. We complement each other's unique gifts and support one another as we grow in faith. Even death does not break these bonds of belonging. Relationships with those we have known and loved still exist even after their physical presence disappears. Our belief in the Communion of Saints assures us that we are still family with those who have gone before us. Having arrived at their eternal destiny they can help us before God's throne, and we ourselves can stay in contact with them through our thoughts and our own prayers. Like St. Paul, because of our faith we can learn to laugh at death itself. In a real sense, death puts us into a whole new orbit of life, unimpeded by the limitations of this world. We all value life and are saddened to see it go. We try to stay in good health and yet we know it is the lot of everyone to die. Many in the parish community over this past year have suffered the loss of a loved one. As a community we grieve with you. We know that the passing of time will relieve some of the pain but right now you may be in need of support. Last Monday, on The Feast of All Souls, St. Charles Borromeo Parish held a Mass of Remembrance. Besides Scripture readings, songs, silence and a homily there was a litany in which all those who had passed away during the past twelve months were mentioned and prayed for. Jesus' resurrection and promise that we too will rise with him give us a whole new slant on life. When we see the struggle between good and evil, life and death we ask, "What will win out?" We know LIFE and GOOD win in the world at large and in each one of us. Through our working together and our support of each other, we help the Lord's kingdom of justice, compassion and peace to grow right here and now in our own homes, our parish, our community and our world. Isn't November a great time to reflect on these eternal truths? May the souls of all the faithful departed through the Mercy of God rest in peace, Amen. Sincerely yours,

MAKING READING THE SCRIPTURES A PART OF OUR LIFE Using the Scriptures as family prayer is a good way to prepare for Sunday Mass. Each week under the Pastor's Letter are the Scripture Readings which will be proclaimed at the upcoming Sunday Liturgy. Thirty-third Sunday in Ordinary Time ­ November 15th Dn 12:1-3; Heb 10:11-14, 18; Mk 13:24-32 FAITH DIRECT IS A WAY TO HELP If you would like an easy way to let us know that you support us even when you can't come to St. Charles Church, we have what is known as Faith Direct whereby your Sunday offering is done electronically. You simply sign up for the program and designate the amount to be offered each week as part of your stewardship of treasure in the Offertory Collection. For more information visit the website at or contact the Parish Center Office at 629-0411.

ST. CHARLES BORROMEO CATHOLIC CHURCH FACILITIES IMPROVEMENTS THROUGH THE YEARS -Purchase of present property -Construction of new church and basement -Construction of Religious Education Center and Gymnasium -Construction of a new rectory -Purchase of a small house on Johnson Road and placement of Statue of St. Charles Borromeo on the site -Major renovation of the church -Major renovation of church basement -Addition of elevator and handicap ramp in the church -Placement of Welcoming Statue of Christ in front of the church -Completion of Prayer Garden dedicated to All Saints -Renovation of Gymnasium into Siena Hall -New Carillons to announce our 40th anniversary of the Dedication of St. Charles Borromeo Church last Sunday -Erection of new storage shed as seen on cover of bulletin today. OUR GRATITUDE TO A VERY GENEROUS DONOR On the cover of the bulletin today there is a picture of a new storage shed next to our gymnasium known as Siena Hall. What was not mentioned on the cover is how we got the concrete base to hold up the building. It is located in a wooded area and the ground was not level. One of our parishioners, John DiSanto, heard that we were going to put up the shed and volunteered to do the concrete work and construct the pad with the help of his workers in his own company, JDS Inc.. Such generosity is truly outstanding and deeply appreciated. Without the support of our generous stewards we would not be able to accomplish all that we do. OUR GRATITUDE CONTINUES AND KNOWS NO LIMIT A couple of weeks ago it was announced in the bulletin that we wanted for the 40th anniversary of the church to replace the carillon that had broken down and no parts were available to fix it. We wanted the bells to ring out again to celebrate four decades of the church's history. It happened last Sunday and the reaction of the parishioners was heartwarming. The bells ring inside and outside the church announcing the times of the Masses and the Angelus at 12:00 noon and 6:00 PM every evening. In order to add this new carillon system we invited parishioners to donate toward it. Within days after this notice was in the bulletin we received our first donation in memory of the Coplin and Rafa families. We are so grateful. Others hearing the bells last Sunday indicated that they would be interested in donating to it also. If anyone else would like to contribute, the opportunity is still available. A plaque will be placed on the console.

THE PASTOR'S REFLECTION ON OUR 40TH ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION What a great parish St. Charles Borromeo is. It is built from the shoulders of giants beginning with our first pastor, Father Joseph Leary and continuing through the leadership of Father William Collins and Monsignor Joseph O'Connell. Many of the giants have passed on but there are still a number who remain and to whom we express our deepest gratitude. The anniversary Mass last Sunday began with a procession of flags representing all the various nationalities of our parishioners who together form one community. The Knights of Columbus in their color guard costumes added importance and dignity to the occasion. Our new bells rang out for the first time and our choir sang their hearts out. One woman told me that she was in tears during the singing of the Gloria. It was so beautiful. The church was decorated in all the fall colors adding to the solemnity of the occasion. One of the features during the Mass was the Blessing of the Quilts that lined the walls of the church. The quilts were made from squares of cloth decorated by individual families in creative ways. We announced that there would be a luncheon after the Mass. It was truly a five star dinner. The selection, the quality and the taste of the food matched the most expensive restaurant. There was a variety for every taste and enough food to feed the entire crowd which almost numbered 400 people. No one went away hungry and like the example of the loaves and fish there was even food left over. The dessert tables not only were not only a feast to look at but were tempting to anyone with a sweet tooth. The choices were unlimited. What was most impressive were the young people dressed in their black and white outfits waiting and serving on tables. They were as efficient as one would find in the best restaurants. Added to all this was the banquet hall itself with its Tuscan décor and the new accent lighting that was just added to Siena Hall. I want to express my deep appreciation to Mary Ann Exler who was the coordinator of the event and all those people who helped her such as the flag bearers, Knights of Columbus, the choir, the ushers, the greeters, the lectors, the Eucharistic Ministers, the young waiters and the servers and most especially the generous people who provided the food. There were many comments that the recipes should have been written so that diners could experience in their own home what they experienced here at St. Charles Borromeo. I want to thank my own staff for all that they did in preparing and executing this important event and a special word of thanks to our maintenance people who did the heavy lifting and put everything back in perfect order. These are just some of my reflections after a very happy day in the life of this wonderful parish.

OUR CHURCH IS ON THE CHRISTMAS TOUR Every year the Wedgewood Women's Club holds a House Tour in Washington Township for Christmas and the visitation of a church in the community is part of the tour. This year for the first time a Catholic Church has been chosen and St. Charles Borromeo is it! The date of the tour is Monday, December 7, 2009 and many preparations are being made to make our church and Prayer Garden sparkling with Christmas decorations to welcome the more than 2,000 people that are expected to make the tour. Our parish choir will be performing in the evening beginning at 7:00 PM and refreshments will be served all day for the visitors in Borromeo Hall. More publicity will be forthcoming about this special event in our community and in our parish church. WHAT WE HOPE TO ACHIEVE FROM OUR NEW BELLS Bells on a church tower are there to announce something special that is happening inside. It is an invitation for people to come and see. Bells also announce the times of the services with the expectation that when the bells finally cease to ring the service begins. The new bells are scheduled to ring on Saturday evening and Sunday to call people to worship ten minutes before Mass begins. The bells will ring again on the hour or at some of our Masses on the half hour and at that point everyone should be ready in their pews for the Opening Hymn. We know that many people arrive late for Mass and probably they do not know the time. Now there is no excuse. The bells can be heard from a distance around and it is a hurry-up call to get to the church on time. Being altogether when Mass begins is really an act of hospitality on everyone's part and since St. Charles Borromeo Parish prides itself on its hospitality we hope that the bells will make it easier to practice it by not coming late anymore. OUR PARISH CONTINUES TO GROW This Sunday after the 9:00 AM Mass or before the 11:00 AM Mass we are expecting quite a number of people who will be registering to become members of St. Charles Borromeo Parish as new parishioners. We welcome them all and hope that they will be very happy in their new spiritual home. We do want them to become involved in the life of the parish and offer their stewardship of time, talent and treasure. We trust that what they give will come back to them in personal satisfaction and choicest blessings. We invite our parishioners who may see a new face sitting beside them to extend a warm welcome and be available to answer any questions they might have about the parish. All of our parishioners belong to our hospitality ministry not just the ushers and greeters who stand at the doors.

SO MUCH TALENT IN OUR PARISH AND SO WILLING TO SHARE A number of months ago at one of the New Parishioner Orientation programs held in Padua Lounge on the first Sunday of the month there was a new family about to register with a mother and her young adult son and daughter. It was the McBride family. During the presentation there was a viewing of the DVD that was made about the parish a couple of years ago. It was professionally done by parishioners and some of the people viewed in the film were no longer ministering with us and so it was a little outdated. This fact was mentioned along with the hope that we would be able to find someone to update the video. Lo and behold, the McBride family raised their hands and said they would do it. Maria, the mother was so proud of her son, David and daughter, Maria for offering their talent for this new project. David and his sister, Maria immediately got to work by setting up cameras and interviewing people over a period of time at most every event in the parish. They recorded voices and spliced film and put together a DVD that tells the story of St. Charles Borromeo Parish, for what we stand and for a hope for what we will always be. This new video got its partial debut last Sunday in Siena Hall during the luncheon. Today it will be fully shown to the new parishioners during the orientation process beginning at 10:15 AM. In the future we will be planning to show it to the entire parish. With deepest gratitude to Maria, Maria and David McBride for recognizing their gifts and being willing to share them with our parish, we are truly indebted. ST. VINCENT DE PAUL SOCIETY We presently need the following items for the pantry: -Soup -Pasta and Sauce -Feminine hygiene products -Tuna Fish -Coffee -Tea -Juices -Mayo -Mustard -Ketchup -Canned fruit -Cereal -Dish and laundry detergents -Jelly -Pork and Beans

STEWARDSHIP REFLECTION The Widow's Stewardship "I say to you this poor widow put in more than all the other contributors to treasury." (Mark 12:43b) Notice that in the story of the widow's mite Jesus did not reach into the treasury box and give the widow back her coins. If He did not exempt her from Stewardship, surely He expects each of us to share what we have to feed the hungry, shelter the homeless, and promote the work of the Church here on earth.

"DINNERS" NEEDED Since Cathedral Kitchen is no longer accepting casseroles, we now give your "dinners" to those in our area that need food that have ovens to heat them. Most of the families that we help like your "dinners" very much and feel connected to you for this outpouring of help. Some even ask for "dinners" by the name of the chef on the label. So, consider making dinner for a family in our community who needs some help. Casserole pans and lids are available in the foyers of the church. Frozen casseroles are collected on the second Tuesday of the month 12:30-1PM and the Monday evening before from 7-8PM at the Religious Ed Center.

One hundred and twenty eight families responded with an entry and under the guidance of Irma Colabrese, Jackie Bruno & Joanne Farrell the design came to life. But hands and spirit also helped sew and pin and iron and create. This was done by Marge Nunno, Christine Dalin, Diane Zachorchemny, Cheryl Jones, Claide Marino, Barb Sanginiti, Jeanne Eaton, Mary McHale, Maryann Mohan & Maryellen Mauro ­ ladies we thank you for your time in helping us make a memory.

We are being asked to contact our Senators and Representatives and send an email with the following message: TO SEND A PRE-WRITTEN, INSTANT E-MAIL TO CONGRESS Go to CALL the U.S. Capitol switchboard at 202-224-3121, or call your Members' local offices. FULL CONTACT INFO CAN BE FOUND ON MEMBERS' WEB SITES AT & Message to SENATE: "During floor debate on the health care reform bill, please support an amendment to incorporate longstanding policies against abortion funding and in favor of conscience rights. If these serious concerns are not addressed, the final bill should be opposed." Message to HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES: "Please support the Stupak Amendment that addresses essential pro-life concerns on abortion funding and conscience rights in the health care reform bill. Help ensure that the Rule for the bill allows a vote on this amendment. If these serious concerns are not addressed, the final bill should be opposed." Both House and Senate are preparing for floor votes now. Act today! Thank you!
