We are grateful to those who have made a special donation towards the two shrines honoring Our Lady of Mount Carmel and Our Lady of Guadalupe in the church vestibule. We need everyone to consider making an offering towards this worthy cause. Your gift will be a sign of love to our Blessed Mother, and will help increase devotion to her in our parish. Please indicate your intention when dropping your donation at the church or at the parish office. We will soon add new votive candles to the shrines for your devotional use.
Our parish has switched offering envelope companies beginning November in order to be more cost effective. Please note that you may have received two different envelopes dated November 6, 2022, one from the old company and one from the new company. Please use only ONE for your contribution next week.
This coming Tuesday, November 1st, is All Saints Day, a Holy Day of Obligation this year. There will be three solemn Masses at 8am, 12 noon and 7:30pm, all in the upper church.
The following day, Wednesday, November 2nd, is All Souls Day. There will also be three Masses that day: 8am, 12 Noon, and 7:30pm, all in the upper church. The names of our deceased loved ones will be read during the solemn Requiem Mass at 7:30pm.
November 2nd also begins our All Souls Novena. You may enroll your deceased loved ones to be prayed for during the Novena of Holy Masses, which will begin on November 3rd and continue for 9 days. Enrollment envelopes are available at the doors of our church.
We are happy to announce that a brand-new Youth Ministry for the teens of our parish is set to debut next week, with the first Youth Night to take place on Friday, November 4, from 7pm to 8pm in the Institute. The aim of the Youth Ministry is to foster a closer friendship with Christ, and a greater sense of belonging to His church among the young people of our parish. All parents and high school students are invited to come and see next Friday evening.
