The Catholic observance of All Saints (November 1) and All Souls (November 2) launches a month-long commemoration of the dead. Because All Saints is such an important feast it is a Holy Day of Obligation for Catholics in the United States. Since the eighth century, the solemnity of All Saints marks a day when we rejoice in the holy men and women of every time and place, canonized or beatified, who are now in heaven. Some were famous; others lived smaller lives going about God’s business on earth relatively unnoticed.
This Wednesday, November 1st is the Feast of All Saints Day. This is a Holy Day of Obligation. Masses will be at 7:00pm on Tuesday, and Wednesday at 7:00am and 9:00am, and 7:00pm.
St. Alphonsus will be hosting its Ministry Fair October 21st and 22nd after all the Masses. This is a wonderful opportunity to sign up and share your God given talents to help our parish. Watch the bulletin for the next few weeks to see all the amazing ministries St. Alphonsus offers. Please prayerfully consider signing up and sharing your time and talents.
Pope Francis kicked off a global campaign in support of migrants and refugees called Share the Journey at his General Audience on September 27: “Don’t be afraid to share the journey. Don’t be afraid to share hope.”
Your neighbors live across the street and the country, across oceans and hemispheres. As millions of God’s children flee war, persecution and poverty, Pope Francis invites you to share their journey by walking with them in prayer and support.
