Month of All Souls
November is the month of all souls. Pray for the faithful departed. Names of relatives and friends who have passed away can be named on parish All Souls Day envelopes. These envelopes and names will be placed on the altar for several All Souls Masses in the month. All Saints Day (Nov. 1) is a Holy Day of Obligation; All Souls Day is not, however many pious devotions are enjoyed by Catholics on All Souls Day, which strengthen the Catholic Faith in Christ our Savior.
Dear parishioners. Two words go through my mind: thanksgiving and unity. The greatest gratitude goes to Christ. But among other small things, I am grateful that parishioners supported me and the parish last year. A year ago we started to ask for a little more money in each and every collection, “an extra two dollars.” The results became apparent that everyone did chip-in a little more, since we met all our income budget goals for the year. And to boot, we just did the small “Gift of Time Campaign” to restore the church clock in Barton and ended up with enough donations from parishioners, with a generous alternate bid, that this project is about to be completed, and we can immediately move on to other parish projects.
