As we begin the month of November let us keep in mind the faithful who have gone before us. Traditionally for Catholics, November is a month set aside when we pray in a special way for all of our deceased faithful and especially for the poor souls who have no one to pray for them. Keeping with this tradition you will find, once again, our Holy Souls box located by the statue of Our Blessed Mother. Feel free to place the names of your loved ones who have passed away on one of the provided envelopes and place it in the box. We will pray at Mass for those entrusted to our prayers throughout the month of Novermber. There is no limit to how many names or envelopes you can place in the box. Those wishing to make a donation may do so using the provided envelopes as well.
The season for Sacramental preparation is upon us! Many of our young people have begun their preparation for confirmation, and it is now time for the younger members of our community to begin preparing to make their very first confessions and to make their first Holy Communion. Families interested in having their children receive these Sacraments are invited to attend an INFORMATION & REGISTRATION SESSION ON TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 24 at 7:00pm.This meeting will take place in the Church and will provide families with much needed information about this year's preparation programme. May God Bless our young people!
We are pleased to see our community responding to the "PROJECT HOPE" initiative! Just a reminder that THIS WEEKEND, October 31/November 1 we will hold a special collection for this initiative. Let us all join together as a community to aid our brothers and sisters who are fleeing persecution in these war torn nations. Together as a community we can make a real difference in their lives.
