6 FROM THE DESK OF FATHER MATT Even as we watch in our world as the COVID numbers continue to spike, still life continues. This weekend, our neighbor Fr. Jeremiah will be joining us for the Saturday 4pm Mass while I celebrate a wedding for a former student down at the Cathedral in Johnstown. This week we celebrated the funeral for one of our parishioners, William Hendrick, and last Friday, we celebrated the funeral of one of our priests, Fr. Andrew Stanko. Most recently Fr. Stanko had been pastor of St. John Vianney in Mundy s Corner, but I knew him best as pastor of St. Stephen Parish in Cambria City, Johnstown. Just like Northern Cambria, Cambria City had been a haven for Ethnic Parishes. About 13 years ago, when I was just a Seminarian, I spent a year in the parish with Fr. Stanko. He was a wonderful priest who had served for many years as a Hospital Chaplain. I remember how, in the days when we were able to do such things, every day he would make a point to stop out to the Hospital and visit his parishioners. I still think of him often when I m able to do communion calls. I d ask you to continue to keep Fr. Stanko and all of our priests, living and deceased in your prayers, as well as encouraging young men to continue to be involved in their faith, and should God call them to the priesthood or religious life, to generously accept that call. Meanwhile, this week, as we wish everyone a joyful Thanksgiving, please know that you are all in our prayers as you make those difficult decisions on who to gather with. My own family has decided that we re going to be scaling back dramatically for Thanksgiving this year, and although we ll all eat Turkey somehow, we may not be able to gather as we usually do. Please continue to pray for all those who are unable to join their families this Thanksgiving. new parish council. One of the first orders of business for our new council (provided we can get things assembled in time) will be to decide the times for our Christmas Masses this year. We will need to make some adjustments so that we can accommodate all the folks who want to come to mass this Christmas, and if possible, I d like to get the input of our new council as we do that. Similarly, we re working on Advent Confession schedules in our region. With the COVID-related restrictions, we won t be able to have penance services as we typically do. Instead, we ll have 2-3 evenings where we will have confession with 1-2 visiting priests from our neighboring parishes. We re currently working on the schedule and I hope to have it out to you soon. Also, please don t forget to check out our baskets next weekend and the weekend of December 5th & 6th. We have some wonderful baskets that will make some great Christmas gifts! Stop by and check them out. If you d like to help us set up for the Basket Raffle, we ll be moving tables and setting things up on this Tuesday, November 24th at 10am. I hope all of you have a joyful Thanksgiving this week. Please stay safe and know that you are always in my prayers. -Fr Matt In more joyful news, please also remember in your prayers Julie Pawlikowski and Brian Laurito, who are to be married next Saturday. If you see them, offer them both congratulations on their happy day and prayer for a faith-filled, joyful marriage. We also have a couple of big things coming up in our parish. This weekend at the 11am mass, we ll be drawing the names for our 6

8 P H THE ORDER OF MASS FOR SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 22 ND, 2020 OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST, KING OF THE UNIVERSE strayed I will bring back, the injured I will bind up, the sick I will heal, but the sleek and the strong I will destroy, shepherding them rightly. As for you, my sheep, says the L GOD, I will judge between one sheep and another, between rams and goats. The word of the L. Thanks be to God. G Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace to people of good will. We praise You, we bless You, we adore You, we glorify You, we give you thanks for your great glory, Lord God, heavenly King, O God, almighty Father. Lord Jesus Christ, Only Begotten Son, Lord God, Lamb of God, Son of the Father, You take away the sins of the world, have mercy on us; You take away the sins of the world, receive our prayer; You are seated at the right hand of the Father, have mercy on us. For you alone are the Holy One, you alone are the Lord, you alone are the Most High, Jesus Christ, with the Holy Spirit, in the glory of God the Father. Amen. F R Ezekiel 34:11-12, A reading from the Book of the Prophet Ezekiel Thus says the L GOD: I myself will look after and tend my sheep. As a shepherd tends his flock when he finds himself among his scattered sheep, so will I tend my sheep. I will rescue them from every place where they were scattered when it was cloudy and dark. I myself will pasture my sheep; I myself will give them rest, says the L GOD. The lost I will seek out, the R P Psalm 23:1-2, 2-3, 5-6 The L is my shepherd; there is nothing I shall want. The L is my shepherd; I shall not want. In verdant pastures he gives me repose. The L is my shepherd; there is nothing I shall want. Beside restful waters he leads me; he refreshes my soul. He guides me in right paths for his name's sake. The L is my shepherd; there is nothing I shall want. You spread the table before me in the sight of my foes; you anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. The L is my shepherd; there is nothing I shall want. Only goodness and kindness follow me all the days of my life; and I shall dwell in the house of the L for years to come. The L is my shepherd; there is nothing I shall want. S R 1 Corinthians 15:20-26, 28 A reading from the first Letter of Saint Paul to the Corinthians Brothers and sisters: Christ has been raised from the dead, the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep. For since death came through man, the resurrection of the dead came also through man. For just as in Adam all die, so too in Christ shall all be brought to life, but each one in proper order: Christ the firstfruits; then, at his coming, those who belong to Christ; then comes the end, when he hands over the kingdom to his God and Father, when he has destroyed every sovereignty and every authority and power. For he must reign until he has put all his enemies under his feet. The last enemy to be destroyed is death. When everything is subjected to him, then the Son himself will also be subjected to the one who subjected everything to him, so that God may be all in all. The word of the L. Thanks be to God.

9 THE ORDER OF MASS FOR SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 22 ND, 2020 G Matthew 25: The L be with you. And with your spirit. A reading from the holy Gospel according to Matthew. Glory to you, O L. Jesus said to his disciples: "When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, he will sit upon his glorious throne, and all the nations will be assembled before him. And he will separate them one from another, as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. He will place the sheep on his right and the goats on his left. Then the king will say to those on his right, 'Come, you who are blessed by my Father. Inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, a stranger and you welcomed me, naked and you clothed me, ill and you cared for me, in prison and you visited me. Then the righteous will answer him and say, 'L, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink? When did we see you a stranger and welcome you, or naked and clothe you? When did we see you ill or in prison, and visit you? And the king will say to them in reply, 'Amen, I say to you, whatever you did for one of the least brothers of mine, you did for me. Then he will say to those on his left, 'Depart from me, you accursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels. For I was hungry and you gave me no food, I was thirsty and you gave me no drink, a stranger and you gave me no welcome, naked and you gave me no clothing, ill and in prison, and you did not care for me. Then they will answer and say, 'L, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or ill or in prison, and not minister to your needs? He will answer them, 'Amen, I say to you, what you did not do for one of these least ones, you did not do for me. And these will go off to eternal punishment, but the righteous to eternal life." The Gospel of the L. Praise to you, L Jesus Christ. third day in accordance with the Scriptures. He ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead and his kingdom will have no end. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life, Who proceeds from the Father and the Son, Who with the Father and the Son is adored and glorified, who has spoken through the prophets. I believe in one, holy, catholic and apostolic Church. I confess one Baptism for the forgiveness of sins and I look forward to the resurrection of the dead and the life of the world to come. Amen. P F After each Let us pray to the L. L, hear our prayer. P G The Priest prays...that my sacrifice and yours be acceptable to God, the almighty Father, May the Lord accept the sacrifice at your hands and the praise and glory of his name, for our good and the good of all his holy Church. H P F I believe in one God, the Father almighty, maker of heaven and earth, of all things visible and invisible. I believe in one Lord Jesus Christ, the Only Begotten Son of God, born of the Father before all ages. God from God, Light from Light, true God from true God, begotten, not made, consubstantial with the Father; through him all things were made. For us men and for our salvation He came down from heaven, (at the words that follow, up to and including and became man, all bow.) and by the Holy Spirit was incarnate of the Virgin Mary, and became man. For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate, he suffered death and was buried, and rose again on the E P Permission to print the music in this service obtained from ONE LICENSE with license #A All rights reserved. 9
