Dear Sisters of Court St. Louis,

Get ready, set, GO! October is jammed packed with both fun and spiritual activities just waiting for you to attend with your family and friends.

The Annual Communion Breakfast is scheduled for Saturday, October 13th. The guest speaker this year is Monsignor Luca who will unlock the mysteries of the relics kept in our main church alter in one of his infamous eight minutes speeches. There will be lots of food and fun for everyone.

Our newest fundraiser, the Mystery Bingo has many surprises (and prizes) in store for us on Saturday, October 20th and the “Beat the Rush” Craft and Vendor Show fundraiser will once again host local and national companies and crafters for you to check out on Saturday, October 27th.

Learn more about the history and stories of the Bible by attending the bus trip to the Bible Museum during the day of Saturday, October 20th.

The month of October is also dedicated to our Blessed Mother Mary, our Patroness. The Spiritual Enhancement Spoke established two new programs last year to help all of us to devote more time praying to our blessed mother and her son Jesus. Two Tuesday evenings a month, our sisters come together to meditate on the Rosary in the Chapel and every Sunday one sister spend an hour at adoration praying for life. Our Spiritual Enhancement spoke urgently seeks your participation. Please consider attending these prayerful and powerful activities in support of their efforts in the coming months.

One very special upcoming occasion is our CDA Sunday Celebration scheduled for Sunday, October 21st at the 12:45PM Mass. CDA Courts all over the world will be celebrating with us on this day. For this service, the Lector and EMHC positions will be filled by Court St. Louis members. The Court Board will bring up the gifts. We will have a table in the Narthex filled with CDA materials for prospective new members to examine. Don’t forget to wear your name tags to show off your Catholic Daughter PRIDE!

And lastly, starting at the October business meeting and continuing through 2019, we will begin the process of rediscovering and learning more about the seven points or “spokes” of the Circle of Love program. The first spoke to be reviewed in this national CDA program will be the “Quality of Life”.

As you can see, there are a lot of events scheduled for October as well as throughout the upcoming year. These activities take months to plan and hundreds of hours to successfully execute. Please let us pray for our Court’s committees and spokes members who work diligently to ensure our success both spiritually and financially.

With unity and charity,

Dede Walsh
