My Dear Parishioners,
We welcome this weekend in the Rite of Welcome our children who will be preparing to receive the sacraments of First Reconciliation and First Eucharist in the months ahead. Please keep them and their families in your prayers as they come to understand and experience more deeply the mercy and forgiveness of our loving God.
November 1, the Feast of All Saints, is on a Tuesday this year and is a Holy Day of Obligation. Mass times will be 8 am and 7 pm. Also, on Wednesday, November 2, the Feast of All Souls, we will have a special Mass at 7 pm to commemorate our beloved dead who have passed from our parish family this past year. Special invitations have gone out to families who have lost a loved one this year and they will receive a special memorial candle during the Mass. While this is not a Holy Day of Obligation, it is a wonderful opportunity to participate in the Mass and remember our own loved ones who have gone home to the Lord.
Enclosed you will find the Annual Report of our parish’s financial status as of the end of our fiscal year, June 30, 2011. We will have an “Annual Meeting” during which you will hear about the state of the parish and can ask questions of our trustee/treasurer at 11 am on Sunday, October 30. All parishioners are encouraged to attend.
Oremus pro invicem,
