Celebrate Priesthood Sunday
Priesthood Sunday, is a special day set aside to honor the priesthood in the United States. It is a day to reflect upon and affirm the role of priesthood in the life of the Church. The United States continues to need men who find themselves drawn to service in God’s kingdom to open themselves up to the possibility of serving the Lord as a priest. Therefore, pray for those men who God is calling to service in the Church as a priest are also encouraged.
Jesus, I pray for Your faithful and fervent priests;
Let us thank God for blessing our parish with Fr. John, Fr. Pius, and Fr. Andrew!
Announcements of the Week
Directory Pictures: Pictures are ready!!
All Soul’s Spiritual Bouquet
From November 1 to November 9 we will be offering 9 Masses to remember all our loved ones that have passed before us. We will have envelopes available at the pews, at the entrances of the church and at the Church Office where you can write down the names of your loved ones for who, you would like to offer the Masses.
Altar of the Dead
The Hispanic Ministry is asking all the parishioners to bring a picture of a loved one to be put on the Altar of the Dead for the All Souls celebration. Please write your contact information on the back of the picture so we can return it when we take down the altar. You can bring your pictures to the Church Office or leave them at the Sacristy. The altar will be at the church from October 30th to November 24th.
Holy Souls Commemoration
It will take place on Sunday, November 2nd at 2:00 pm in Calvary Cemetery and 3:30 pm at Holy Cross Cemetery. This action is and has been throughout the history of our Church, one of the greatest signs of our belief in the power of prayers for our relatives and friends who passed on before us. Please note: We request that you do not park in Calvary Cemetery when you come for All Souls Commemoration. If you have an elderly or infirm person to bring, we ask that you drive the person into the cemetery and then park the car outside of the cemetery.
There will be a second collection for Calvary Cemetery on the weekend of
November 1st and 2nd for the upkeep of the Cemetery.
