Respect Life Week
This week, in communion with the Universal Church in the month of October, we take a deeper look at celebrating, respecting and defending the dignity of all human life. Along with the USCCB, our theme this year is St. Joseph, Defender of Life. Join in the daily focus with prayer, and encourage your son or daughter to get involved this week. Check out the Xavier Respect Life Week calendar here. With the goal of dignifying the life of our brothers and sisters in need in our community, the personal product drive for Metro Catholic Outreach continues during this Respect Life Week. Be generous and help others who are in material need. 

Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday, join us at 3PM, in the chapel or from where you are, to pray the Chaplet of Divine Mercy for greater respect, celebration, and dignity of human life with the specific focus on the group each day. Join on Wednesday at 7AM or at 3PM to pray a rosary for the defense, dignity, and celebration of all human life from womb to tomb. As always, join us for 7AM Mass on Friday, with specific prayer intentions for life, or join us for Adoration at any time on Friday to pray for the vulnerable, forgotten, and disregarded in our midst. 

Students may join the Respect Life club for a service outing to Metro Catholic Outreach on Tuesday, from 4:30-5:45pm. Limited spots available. Check in with Ms. Gelaude if students are interested; a permission form is needed.

Students may join Respect Life club for the movie Unplanned on Thursday night, starting at 7PM. To watch the movie, a permission slip is needed. Check in with Ms. Gelaude if students are interested! *Location will either be the theater or the cube! Parents and guardians, watching the trailer of Unplanned is even helpful for greater awareness of the need to uphold the Dignity of Human Life from womb to tomb.

Thank you Concession Chairs & Volunteers; More Help Needed!
In the month of September XBC has raised almost $15,000 in concessions due to the tremendous support of XBC Concessions Chairs Kim Loffsowld, Justine Kadlec and parents from Girl's Basketball, Boy's Soccer, Girl's Soccer, Robotics and Volleyball! All of the profits from concessions is allocated directly to the 40+ activities that Xavier Booster Club supports. 

Help in concessions is still needed for October!  
Activities that will volunteer for concessions include Band, Boy's Tennis, Volleyball, Girl's CC, and Wrestling. If your student participates in these activities please review the sign up for volunteer spots. All parents and volunteers are welcome regardless of activity to volunteer. Many hands make light work.
