ALL SAINTS' DAY...
is a solemn holy day of the Catholic Church celebrated annually on November 1. The day is dedicated to the saints of the Church, that is, all those who have attained heaven. Although millions, or even billions of people may already be saints, All Saints' Day observances tend to focus on known saints --that is those recognized in the canon of the saints by the Catholic Church. Masses for this Holy Day of Obligation will be celebrated at 7 am, 12:10 pm and 6:30 p.m.

ALL SOULS DAY...
On All Souls, we remember all those who have died, not just the spiritual superstars. From the earliest days the church has prayed for the deceased. Their judgment is in the hands of God, and we trust in God’s mercy. But we also believe God cares about us and our concerns, so prayers for our deceased loved ones are appropriate. It’s appropriate to commemorate All Souls Day by praying for those who have gone before us in faith. Some people also visit the graves of their loved ones to pray for them. The feast of All Souls reminds us of our mortality. We are all finite, mortal creatures. We are all loved by God, who has endowed us with an immortal soul. Our ultimate destiny lies in God’s hands, and even death does not separate us from his love. Please remember your deceased loved ones by placing a butterfly on the trellis with the name of your loved ones, by entering your deceased loved one in the Book of the Names of the Dead, and by making a offering in memory of your deceased family members and friends. Special Envelopes for All Souls Day can be found in the pews and entrance to the church.
