THIS WEEKEND IN THE CHURCH
THE MOST REVEREND ALBERTO ROJAS, BISHOP TO
VICARIATE 1, WILL BE AT ST. ANASTASIA PARISH ON SUNDAY, OCTOBER 6, 2019 TO CELEBRATE THE 9:00 AND 11:00 MASSES.
PLEASE COME TO MASS AND WELCOME BISHOP ROJAS TO OUR PARISH COMMUNITY.
 
SPECIAL REQUEST FOR PARENTS
We would like to ask all of our parents to please let their child(ren) know before they leave for school in the morning how they will be getting home, if there is a change in their normal routine. Please, also, send a note to your child's teacher if there is a change to their daily
departure from school routine.
The office is flooded with calls daily regarding changes for end of the day transportation. It gets very confusing for our office staff and could cause a safety risk to your child. Of course we realize emergencies arise and we will be happy to get a message to your student if that is the case. Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.
 
RENEW MY CHURCH
There will be a Renew My Church parish session meeting on Wednesday, October 9, at 6:30 pm in the church hall.
Parishioners will gather with their Grouping Feedback and Discernment Team. Here they: A) are informed about what is being discussed and prayed about; B) ask questions about the Grouping Feedback and Discernment Team's progress and process; and C) provide input to the team that informs the Feedback Summary Report for the Commision and Cardinal Cupich.
Father Dennis would like to encourage all parishioners to save the date: Wednesday, October 9th, at 6:30 in the Church Hall. This will be our second parish conversation. Father would also ask that you continue to pray for the guidance of the Holy Spirit throughout this process.
