We will welcome back Dr. Peter Kwasniewski to give a presentation Beyond Smells and Bells: Why We Need the Objective Content of the Usus Antiquior on Wednesday, November 13, at 7:30 PM in the hall at St. Boniface Church on Second Street.
Refreshments will be provided and served by the men of the St. Joseph Guild. A Mass will precede the talk at 6:30 PM here at All Saints. Spread the word and plan to attend!
It’s annual because fall only happens once a year (yes, it would have been easier to delete the word “annual” rather than comment on it). Consider lending a hand to help cleanup the parish grounds on Saturday, November 30 following the 9:00 AM Mass. All the leaves should be on the ground by then and the construction work on the site completed. Many hands make light work and it is hoped to be all finished up by noon.
Envelopes are now available in the vestibule for the annual novena of Masses for the All Souls’ octave (November 1-8). Please be sure to pick one up and return it either by mail or by dropping in the collection basket. Envelopes are due Friday, November 1 before the evening mass.
Archbishop Hebda has called for an archdiocesan synod in 2021, which is an assembly designated to help identify the most important needs in the archdiocese and determine a pastoral plan for the future. To help assist with the agenda for the synod, he is hosting “listening sessions” around the archdiocese where he will be present, to which any of the faithful can attend and respectfully bring their views to his attention. A list was provided last week on the back of the bulletin insert and can be also found at archspm.org/synod.
The North American Headquarters of the Fraternity will be holding events around the country in regards to the work of the Fraternity, its service to the Church, and the need of support for the Fraternity itself beyond one’s own parish.
The pilot event will be here at All Saints! Any household (registered by mid-August) should have received an invitation in the mail to attend the event on Saturday, October 19 starting at 10:30 AM with refreshments in the hall at St. Michael’s Church across the street.
Fr. John Berg, former superior general, will give a presentation towards 11 AM, followed by Fr. Zach Akers from the development office on legacy gifts. While everyone is welcome, if you have received the invite, please be sure to RSVP if you plan to come so there is an idea of how much lunch to provide.
Join the nationwide initiative to pray the Rosary at 3:00 PM next Sunday, October 13 (anniversary of the miracle at Fatima) to implore our Lady for the spiritual welfare of our country, repeal of anti-life legislation, and in reparation for the crimes against life.
