Next Sunday is All Souls’ Day where we remember all our loved ones who have gone before us. Since Nov. 1 All Saints’ Day falls on a Saturday it is not a holy day of obligation so we won’t have additional masses. However both feasts really encompass all we are, as we remember saints and all the faithful departed. Both feasts are a reminder that we are always connected with those who go before us, and especially at the Mass as with pray with the Communion of Angels and Saints. November is a time for thanksgiving, not only the holiday but to reflect on all those blessings by way of the people who have been in our lives. Saturday, November 8th at 12 Noon within the novena of All Souls’ Day Masses, we will have our Mass of Remembrance for all those who have died over the past year from our parish family. This is again to remind us that even though we may be physically separated from our loved ones, spiritually we are not! This is a lovely way to come together as a parish family and pray and support one another. Don’t forget if you would like your loved one remembered during our All Souls’ Day Novena of Masses to fill out an envelope and either drop it in the collection basket or drop by the rectory. All Holy Men and Women Pray for Us!
For now, we continue our walk with the Lord.
