With Thanksgiving quickly approaching, our Parish Charities office is anticipating the need for non-perishable items to help make the holidays special for those in need. Thank you in advance for your generosity in providing for others during the upcoming holiday season.
The Solemnity of All Saints, November 1, falls on Thursday this year and is a holy day of obligation. Masses Schedule: Wednesday, Vigil at 7pm; Thursday at Wolf River Cemetery at 10am (just like in the past, Fr. Vo will bless the graveyard after the Mass), and also on Thursday at 7pm the Mass is at St. Ann.
Especially in the month of November, the dead are remembered in prayer. We will have a Novena Mass at St. Ann and OLC to remember our loved ones. The Novena will begin on Nov 2nd and end on Nov 10th. Envelopes will be available in the vestibule of the church. Please print the names clearly so that we can record them in the Frame for the Intention of the Dead which will be placed at the foot of the altar during the Novena.
If so, you are invited to attend the 2018/19 Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) sessions, which begin on Wednesday, September 12th at 6:30pm in the chapel and continue until May. Please see the bulletin for contact information.
We will study “Belonging” beginning on August 29. Please join us. Classes are on Wed at 6:00pm. For more information, please contact Ruth.For more information, please contact Ruth.
