EMERGENCY DISASTER RELIEF COLLECTION

The American bishops of the Catholic Church have asked parishes to take up an optional collection to assist those suffering because of the wildfires, Hurricane Laura, and other recent disasters.  If you are able to willing to donate, please identify the donation (check or online through “donorbox”) as going to “Disaster Relief”.  The donations will support Catholic Charities USA and Catholic Relief Services.  Thank you for your generosity!  You will find the official request posted on the bulletin board by the small hall entrance.

 

Praying the Psalms: (1 of 4 daily prayer resource bulletin inserts) 

The Psalms are the prayer book of the church. According to tradition, all 150 psalms are prayed every week. This is done by grouping the psalms into sections called “Kathismata” and chanting one or more Kathismata during the various liturgies celebrated throughout the day.  (The psalms vary greatly in length. This system takes this into consideration and assigns generally the same number of verses per section.)  This weekly cycle is usually only done in monasteries, but it is important for all Christians to pray the psalms. One way to incorporate this tradition in a way that isn’t overwhelming is to break up the Kathisma further. Notice below that each Kathisma is broken up into three sections (“stases”). If you pray one of these stases everyday (psalms 1-3 on the first day, 4-6 on the second day etc.) you will pray all 150 psalms in 60 days.
