November is the Month of the Holy Souls

When we remember our faithful departed who have entered eternal life, a pious custom of our Church is to write down the names of the deceased to be prayed for and place their names throughout the month of November in the Sanctuary of our Church. An envelope for this purpose is found in our budget packets. But the money offering is not the most important part of this tradition. So, with or without a money offering, please use the envelope provided or any other envelope or note paper to write down the names of your loved ones and place the envelope or the list in the collection box. All lists and envelopes will be collected and placed in the Sanctuary beginning Tuesday November 2, All Souls Day. May all the souls of the faithful departed rest in God’s peace. Amen


A Deceased Memorial Mass

A Memorial Mass will be offered in our Church on Saturday, November 6 at 4:00 PM for all those deceased whose funerals were celebrated in our Church from October 1, 2020 thru September 30, 2021. Personal letters of invitation for this special Mass are sent by the Pastor to every family who lost a loved one during that time period. The names of the deceased will be read during the Mass. November is the “month of the Holy Souls.” We keep our loved ones close to us by constantly offering prayer before God for their souls and releasing them into God’s merciful hands. May they rest in God’s peace.

As dessert was served to the visiting pastor, the hostess apologized for not having any cheese to go with the apple pie. Hearing this, her little son slipped down from his chair and left the room for a moment. He returned shortly with a small piece of cheese and shyly placed it on the pastor's plate. "Well, thank you, son," said the guest. "You must have sharp eyes to have seen that piece of cheese when your mother didn't. Where did you find it?" Flushing with pride, the little boy said, "Oh, it was in the mousetrap."
