All Saints, All Souls Days
Saturday, Nov. 1, is All Saints Day. This year it is NOT a Holy Day of obligation since it falls on a Saturday. The All Souls Day Memorial Mass to remember those of our parish who have died during the past year will be held at the 5:30 p.m. Mass on Saturday, Nov 1.
A special All Souls Novena of Masses will begin on Sunday, Nov. 2, the Feast of All Souls. Envelopes are available in the back of church on which to enter the names of those who have died. Please fill in the names of those you wish to remember and return the envelope in the collection basket or to the church office.
Parish Mission Set for Nov. 30 - Dec. 4
St. Mary’s will be presenting a parish mission entitled “To Serve is to Reign.”
The mission will be presented over five consecutive days in St. Mary’s Church from Sunday, Nov. 30 through Thursday, Dec. 4, at 6:30 p.m. each evening. The presentation will last for approximately 45 minutes and be followed by a 15-minute Benediction prayer service.
A “parish mission” is a special event for Catholics in which EVERYONE is invited to take part in several days of activity and prayer, all focusing on faith enrichment. A mission is conducted by guest speakers who provide dynamic presentations directed toward key aspects of faith applied to life issues. Those who attend a parish mission often experience a spiritual renewal, bringing about a deeper love for God, and a revitalization of their personal relationships.
For our parish mission, St. Mary’s has invited a representative from an order of priests called the Fathers of Mercy. For over 200 years this congregation of priests has evangelized and strengthened the faith of parish communities through their exciting form of preaching, that is both powerful and thought-provoking. They will be conducting the five evening presentations, as well as briefly visiting with the school children and faculty. CLICK FOR FULL STORY
