Mass Intentions can be accommodated at the priests’ private Masses during the week, although they will not be published. If you would like to utilize this option, until new envelopes are printed, please legibly write “May be fulfilled privately” on the envelope. Please limit one intention per envelope and note that this is a service to registered and regularly attending parishioners only. Currently, published intentions are backlogged through next September 2020. Thank you!
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.
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!
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.
A reception is in planning for our patronal feast following the 10:30 High Mass on Sunday, November 3. More information to follow next week.
