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.
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.
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.
We will welcome back Dr. Peter Kwasniewski to present a presentation Beyond Smells and Bells: Why We Need the Objective Content of the Usus Antiquior on Wednesday evening, November 13. More information to follow, but mark your calendars now and plan to attend!
Please be sure to fill out and turn in the registration forms for the School of Mary summer catechesis program, which will be conducted by the Sisters from Monday, July 15 to Thursday, July 18 from 9 AM until noon for children and youth ages 5 through 18 (Mass will be available each day).
The morning will consist of catechesis classes and some fun! On the same days and during the catechesis for the children, the priests will offer catechesis and prayer time for the parents.
Registration forms are available in the vestibule.
The Sisters will need adult helpers for the classes. The Sisters would also like to offer child care, so that parents could attend the classes as well, and need volunteers to assist with child care. If you are 17 or older and would like to help, please contact the Sisters at 612-353-6343 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
