~At these Thanksgiving Masses, we ask you to bring with you an non-perishable food item.  These food items will be offered during the Offertory as we thank God for the abundance of goods we have and that we will share this abundance to our brothers and sisters in need.~
 
 
The public, sacred processions are ancient practice of faith to stir up devotion of the faithful and to give thanks to God for His divine favors and also to implore His help for us. Join us Sunday, November 25 after the Sunday 5 pm Mass for a Eucharistic Procession around the grounds of the church.  Let us come and stir up, implore and thank God for all that He has done for us.
 
 
Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic Parish is a faith-filled community for all cultures and ages dedicated to building the Kingdom of God. We come closer to God by following Jesus Christ through His Word and the Sacraments. Through the Holy Spirit and with the intercession of our Blessed Mother, we provide a sense of belonging to all God's people through prayer, service and the sharing of our gifts for the praise and glory of God.

Our Sunday scripture encourages us to live the qualities of generosity and compassion.  In the first reading, the book of Kings tells of a poor widow who showed mercy in the form of practical compassion by sharing her last crust with the prophet Elijah.  The widow of Zarephath and the prophet Elijah helped each other to survive.  She shares the last of her food with the starving prophet and is blessed in return.  In the gospel, the widow’s offering to the Temple seem small to the other rich donors, but it was priceless in value.  Jesus commends the widow and set her as an example of faith.  His comments are not based on the level of her giving, but on her total dependence on God.  The widow gave everything and trusted that God would provide for her just as God has done previously in her life.  The Scribes and other religious leaders thought that the measure of a person’s faith was in their personal devotional practices e.g. prayer, fasting and giving a tithe.  Though Jesus was certainly a pious Jew, Jesus taught the disciples that faith was so much more.  So, attending mass and receiving the sacraments is only genuine if it prompts us to having loving mercy, compassion and generosity.  Generosity is not the exclusive quality of the rich.  The poor have great gifts to share too, and when they do so, others should respond in appreciation.  Loving our neighbors as ourselves is also a demonstration of faith.  This concept is supported by Jesus by both his words and his actions.  The gospels are filled with examples of Jesus caring for others, healing them, freeing them from the forces of evil, and providing for them.
Your contributions in our parish are helping to support the building of our new church.  And let us remember today that all donations made for the glory of God share in Jesus’ praise of the woman who “gave all she could” This story challenges us to examine the quality of giving in our lives –not just church donations but to whatever worthy cause attracts our attention and sympathy, More than once, Jesus spoke about this subject.  Not only should the gift be made with a generous heart, but so far as possible our giving should be done with the intention of pleasing God rather than winning credit or praise from others.  And the more it costs us in personal terms like giving up some of our time, our comfort for something worthwhile, the more it is part of the one great sacrifice of Christ, who gave Himself totally for us.  It is the best possible investment for our eternal future – the treasure in heaven of which Jesus spoke, when he invited people to sell what you have and give to the poor.  We will be happier to think of what we have freely given away during our life time than of what we have simply stored away for the rainy day.  We came into this world with nothing and we will leave this world with nothing.
Jesus is the Greatest Giver by his crucifixion and death for all our sins.  He gave His life that we may have life and have eternal life with God in heaven.
