Fr. DiRocco will be away from Monday, January 6th through Saturday, January 25th.
Mass Intentions are no longer being received at the present time, due to a large backlog extending over a year. You will be informed via bulletin when reception of Mass Intentions will resume. Thank you!
We are happy to announce the reception into the Holy Catholic Faith of three young adult converts: Ian Burt, Tom Fredrickson, and Parker Olson on Monday, December 9. They will be received with the traditional Profession of Faith and Abjuration of error, the “supplying rites” of Baptism (including anointings, exorcisms, and prayers not included in other Christian rites of Baptism), Confirmation, and finally, First Holy Communion within the celebration of the evening Mass.
The Supplying Rites will begin approximately at 5:30 p.m., and the Mass will be a High Mass, celebrated at the normal time (7:00 p.m.). Please, pray for our new Catholics!
We are very happy to welcome Fr. Andrezj Komorowski, Superior General of the FSSP, who will visit All Saints on Sunday, November 17! Fr. Komorowski was elected Superior General in 2018 (he succeeded Fr. Berg) and is making an effort to visit all the apostolates in North America. Father will offer the 10:30 Solemn Mass that day; a coffee and light dessert reception will follow in the hall at St. Boniface Church on Second Street, where he will have the opportunity to greet everyone. Plan to attend!
Tuesday Catechism classes will usually meet on the last Tuesday of the month, depending on the availability of the hall.
Please note that, in lieu of the Dr. Kwasniewski’s talk, there will be no monthly catechism class in November.
All Souls’ Day is Saturday, November 2. Three public Masses (with distribution of Holy Communion) will be offered at 7:00 AM, 9:00 AM, and 11:30 AM.
The 9:00 AM Mass will be a solemn Requiem concluding with absolution over the catafalque. A plenary indulgence (under the usual conditions) can be obtained for the poor souls for the visiting of a cemetery any or all days between November 1-8 and praying for the souls in purgatory (there are no prescribed prayers, so it can be anything from a Memorare to a whole Rosary), as well as praying for intention of the Holy Father. Everyone is strongly encouraged to assist at Mass this day, if possible, keeping in mind the words from Sacred Scripture: It is therefore a holy and wholesome thought to pray for the dead, that they may be loosed from their sins. (2 Macc 12:46)
Christ the King is Sunday, October 27. Established by Pope Pius XI in 1925 in a call to “restore all things in Christ,” the feast was placed on the last Sunday of October in proximity to All Saints’ and All Souls’ days, proclaiming Christ as King over all the Church and the world, as well to counteract “Reformation Sunday” in Protestant circles, which occurs the same day.
The 10:30 Solemn High Mass will include a small orchestra and conclude with a Eucharistic procession around the block (weather permitting) and Benediction. All are encouraged to attend!
