The leader guides have scripted lessons to help you have a successful year.

Classes begin in mid-October Catechists do not pay tuition for all children enrolled in the program. Please email Mary Humphrey at
.if you are interested.
Catechists are still needed to teach grades 1, 3, 4, and 5 on Tuesday afternoons from 3:45pm-5:00pm. A grade 5 catechist is also needed for Wednesday afternoons from 3:45pm-5:00pm
Please consider helping the children of Resurrection Parish grow in their Catholic Faith.

BUILD UP YOUR TRUST IN GOD
Are you afraid to trust God with your life? Do you give him your problems but take them back when he doesn’t do what you want? It is only when we have complete trust in God that our lives work well.
- God is trustworthy.
A trustworthy person has high moral integrity and character. We have thousands of years of history in the Bible that prove God means what he says and says what he means. He always does what he promises.
- God is capable.
Certainly, God took excellent care of King David, Job, Moses and even Jesus and his family. He is certainly capable and interested in taking care of you. God has power over all creation, so he clearly has the ability to accomplish anything. He has infinite wisdom, so he knows what you need. More to the point, God loves you with unimaginable intensity so he always wants what is best for you. In fact, God is more qualified than you are to take care of what you need.
- Are you ready to really trust God?
Start by thanking Him no matter what. Everything that He allows to happen to us is for our good. Then remind yourself that God is fully in charge. Finally, ask him what you should do next and do it.

Election Prayer for Life
O God, we acknowledge you today as Lord,
Not only of individuals but of nations
We thank you for the privilege
Of being able to organize ourselves politically
And of knowing that political loyalty
Does not have to mean disloyalty to you.
We thank you for your law.
Which our founding fathers acknowledged
And recognize as higher than any human law.
We thank you for the opportunity that
This election year puts before us.
To exercise our solemn duty not only to vote,
But too influence countless others to vote,
And to vote correctly.
Lord we pray that your people
May be awakened.
Let them realize that while politics is not their salvation,
Their response to you requires that they
be politically active.
Awaken your people to know that they are not called
to be sect fleeing the world
But rather a community of faith renewing the world.
Awaken them that the same hands lifted
up to you in prayer.

Click on the attachment for an interesting exercise on today's scripture for children.
In today's Gospel, Jesus moves from Galilee to teach in Judea where he is sought out by great crowds and tested by the Pharisees on issues such as marriage and divorce. Jesus also encounters a rich young man who is unable to accept Jesus' demand that he leave his possessions to follow Him. Jesus' response to the rich young man sounds very much like the conclusion we will find in today's Gospel: the first will be last and the last will be first.

Please use caution with emails from an unfamiliar email address.
Some Parishioners and Staff recently reported receiving an "urgent" email that appeared to be from Monsignor Dwyer with a statement similar to "I Need Assistance From You, Email Me As Soon As You Get This Message". This is a typical "phishing" email. Phishing emails are used by cyber criminals to attempt to trick individuals by creating and sending fake emails that appear to be from an authentic source. Such emails are usually poorly written and designed to make you feel a sense of urgency. If you engage with the sender, they may ask you to confirm personal information, open a malicious attachment that infects your computer, or purchase gift cards or perform other financial transactions on their behalf. Do not reply or click any links if you have reason to suspect the email is not legitimate.
Even if you think there’s a possibility that an email from Resurrection is genuine, you should
Contact the Rectory
directly and ask to confirm – do not use any communication method provided in the email.
