Twenty-eighth Sunday in Ordinary Time | October 15, 2017
I can do all things in him who strengthens me. — Philippians 4:13
THE HEAVENLY BANQUET
The mountain of the Lord described in today’s first reading is a place where there is no more hunger, no more weeping, and no more division of any kind. We need to pause and ponder these images every now and then, especially given the fact that we live in such a fractured world. The responsorial psalm continues to paint a picture of a place where only goodness and kindness flourish. These readings describe the heavenly banquet, to which God calls each of us through baptism and continues to call us throughout our lives. Let us “RSVP” to God’s invitation and live our lives consistent with gospel values so that one day we will be welcomed to the table of the kingdom.
Our Fall Festival, “Passport to Paradise” is in full swing! Bring your family and friends. There is something for everyone! Enjoy wonderful food ( there’s a new Mexican food booth this year, as well as our renowned Asia food booth), games, rides, bingo, bar and much more. Come and join the fun! Thank you for your support!
On Sunday, November 19, St. Dunstan’s 2nd annual Holiday Boutique and Raffle will be held in the parish center!

St. Dunstan Adult Choir invites new members to sing at 10:00 am Mass! Your enthusiasm for singing and the ability to sing on pitch are all that is required. You will receive vocal training, learn to improve breath support and diction, acquire skills in reading musical notation, and cultivate an ability to sing more expressively. Please consider serving God and our community by giving your time and talent, and join others who have a passion for singing their faith. More information: Cindy Bruni 650-697-1907.
