Feast Day of the Week: 9 October
Saint John Leonardi (1541 – 1609)
He was born at Lucca in Tuscany. Trained initially as an apothecary, he fought hard to become a priest and was ordained in 1572. A few laymen attached themselves to him in 1574 and some-thing began to grow that looked as if it might become a religious order. A storm of persecution erupted. It seems possible that the Republic of Lucca felt that being the birthplace of a religious order might be dangerous for the independence of the state, given the complicated interna-tional politics of the time. Whatever the reason, Leonardi spent most of the rest of his life in exile from Lucca, only occasionally obtaining permission to visit it after extreme pressure from the Pope.
The order that he founded, now known as the Order of Clerks Regular of the Mother of God, is in charge of eight churches in Italy and is also involved in missionary work. In addition, his work was taken up and extended by the Popes into the Work of the Propagation of the Faith (de propaganda fidei), of which he is therefore honoured as the founder.
BREAK OPEN THE WORD 2022 Year C, the Book for Readers, gives the readings and psalms for each Sunday with a commentary designed to provide not only background to the text but assistance on how to proclaim it.

Flower Fundraiser: On the weekend of October 9&10 there will be a sale of a variety of quali-ty vases, donated to the Parish over the years, but way too many for us to use.
All proceeds will go to the parish towards the purchase of flowers and other items which will help make our grounds a joyful place to visit and our church an uplifting place of worship.
