On the weekend of October 27th/28th
we will have a special collection for Priesthood Sunday
to support the education of our seminarians!
Please remember to pray for Fr. John, Fr. Paul,
all the Priests and the 27 Seminarians of our Diocese!
For several years now, we have sought your financial support for our Seminarian Education Fund on Priesthood Sunday, which is celebrated the last weekend in October. You have been generous in your gifts and your support has allowed 23 men to be ordained in the last five years. Your continued support today will assist in the education and formation of the 27 men we currently have in formation. These men represent the future of our Church in Middle Tennessee. Your contribution today helps to ensure future priests will be available when you or a loved one needs them.
At this time especially, I share your belief in Jesus Christ who heals and strengthens us all. We need good priests to bring us the light and life of Jesus. Please help me continue to form the young men who are courageously answering the call to do just that.
Please prayerfully consider supporting the Seminarian Education Fund.
Sincerely yours in Christ,
Most Reverend J. Mark Spalding
Bishop of Nashville

The new offerings this month highlight the topics of relativism, sin and Catholic morality. In Absolute Relativism: The New Dictatorship and What to Do about It, Chris Stefanick tackles all the tough questions about relativism by showing how bankrupt and impractical it is. In the talk: Battle Within, Jeff Cavins provides a practical guide on how to battle sin in the areas of our lives where we tend to fall and he helps examine the root causes in order to understand the "why" behind our actions. The booklet: Some Fundamental Principles of Catholic Morality, explains the source of morality of human actions. It also discusses the three universal moral rules that make an action good or evil. As always, if you have any questions or suggestions contact Leona Steinhilber at 615-265-8375. Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us!
