GET READY FOR THANKSGIVING! Market Day provides restaurant quality results and helps Queen of Angels School, too! Pick up a Market Day order form in church or school or visit www.marketday.com to see more than 200 quality food items. Market Day has healthy snacks, quick entrees, and a long line of convenience foods. Market Day has been a long-time presence at Queen of Angels for a reason: the items are high quality and the profits go directly to the school. Make a difference and do some grocery shopping along the way. This is a great way to help Queen of Angels School with very little effort. Online Market Day orders are due by 11 p.m. Wednesday, November 16. Pick-up will be 9:15 a.m. Saturday, November 19 at the Guild Hall. Want to help? Call Nancy at 773-539-7510.
A REFLECTION FROM SSVD The good news of today’s gospel is the extravagance of what is being given to us. All we need to do is be faithful in “small matters.” The cost of fidelity has no comparison to the reward given. When you give the furniture, household items and clothing you no longer use to the Society of St. Vincent DePaul, you are sharing God’s extravagant love. The donation box previously located in the parking lot has been relocated to the parking lot at St. Matthias Parish, 4934 N. Claremont.
JOIN US TO PRAY THE ROSARY Looking to take some time for prayer in your Saturdays? Join us to pray the Rosary after each 9 a.m. Saturday Mass. To volunteer to lead prayers, please call Joann at 773-583-1371.
IT’S BOWLING SEASON! The Ravenswood Catholic Young Adults (RCYA) bowls Monday evenings through the end of February at Lincoln Square Lanes, 4874 N. Lincoln Ave. (above the hardware store). Lincoln Square Lanes has agreed to host the group for a mere $4.50 per game per person and $4 per person for shoe rental. Bowling will be every Monday beginning at 7:30 p.m. through the end of February. All skill levels are invited. This is a great way to meet fellow parishioners and strengthen ties with the community. For more information, please contact Leah Bertke at email@example.com or Tracy O’Dowd at 312-685-2678.
FRIDAY EUCHARISTIC ADORATION Every Friday, the Blessed Sacrament is placed out for veneration and prayer from 9:30 a.m. until 5 p.m. To reach the Adoration Chapel, enter the church through the Claremont door, walk up the stairs, turn to the left and then to the left again. Walk down the passage behind the altar and enter the former baptistery where the Eucharist is exposed for veneration. Help us keep vigil with the Lord by making some time on Fridays for these moments of prayer. This is a wonderful way to feel closer to God and rest in God’s presence. Visitors are asked to register in the sign-in book.
HOSTS NEEDED The Parish Social following the 9:30 a.m. Mass needs people willing to help host these gatherings. Would you care for some coffee, some juice or a donut? If you attend the Parish Social on Sundays, you know you’re at the right place. Gather outside or in the Lower Church and engage in conversation while having a light snack. It’s all there for you to enjoy following the 9:30 a.m. Mass each Sunday. Are you able to bring baked goods or fruit on any given Sunday? If so, please call the Parish Center and leave your name and phone number. Beverages will be provided. Please lend a hand. Contact Walter Rucker at firstname.lastname@example.org or call the Parish Center at 773-539-7510.
