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.
