ALL SAINTS & SOULS
Tuesday, November 1st, the Feast of All Saints, is a HOLY DAY OF OBLIGATION. In addition to 8:30 a.m., we will also celebrate another Mass at 6:00 P.M. both in the Main Sanctuary.
It struck me that all the names I wrote down for our All Souls Novena beginning November 2nd, are already Saints. If Mom didn’t make it (after seven kids) then no one did.
BUT... the prayers and Masses that we offer for them now are a powerful way of saying “Thank You” to God for the gift of their lives. After all, isn’t that what Eucharist means? THANKSGIVING!
And speaking of thanks, our (and I mean OUR) special thanks go out to Elli Hurst and the wonderful crew who gave us Oktoberfest 2022. What a wonderful night! What a wonderful meal! I hope we never take those kinds of things for granted. I heard over the weekend that the crew had to do serious shopping for the brauts: raids on various Publix meat counters. And then those desserts! Restaurant Depot is a name we (I) shall never forget.
