Thursday, November 1 is All Saints’ Day, a holy day of obligation. Mass will be celebrated on the holy day at 8:30am, 12:15, 5:30 & 7:30pm. (Vigil Mass Wednesday at 5:30pm) The Parish Office will be closed on November 1 in observance of the holy day. On All Saints’ Day, the Church celebrates all the saints: canonized or beatified, and the multitude of those in heaven enjoying the beatific visions that are only known to God. All lived lives like our own here on earth. We can join them one day in heaven.
All Souls Day (also known as the Commemoration of All the Faithful Departed) is Friday, November 2 and is a day set aside for honoring the dead. We are encouraged to pray especially on this day for the holy souls in purgatory. All Souls is not a holy day of obligation; however, Mass attendance, to honor our beloved dead, is encouraged. Mass on November 2 will be at 8:30am and 5:30pm
