This Sunday, September 25, 2022, is the 108th World Day of Migrants and Refugees. In his message, Pope Francis said, “No one must be excluded. God’s plan is essentially inclusive and gives priority to those living on the existential peripheries. Among them are many migrants and refugees, displaced persons, and victims of trafficking. The Kingdom of God is to be built with them, for without them it would not be the Kingdom that God wants. The inclusion of those most vulnerable is the necessary condition for full citizenship in God’s Kingdom.”
In the St. James bulletin for the Twenty-Sixth Sunday in Ordinary Time, Fr. Don Farnan shares his reflection. Please see attached 26th Sunday in OT Bulletin.

St. James Pantry Sunday is this Sunday. Hygiene items for Bishop Sullivan Center would be appreciated: toilet paper, soap, toothpaste, toothbrushes, deodorant, shampoo etc. There is also a new option for Pantry Sunday: making a donation to support the work of Kanbe’s. Check out them out at kanbesmarkets.org. Kanbe’s delivers food justice one neighborhood at a time.
Have a blessed weekend.
