We Celebrate All Saints Day and All Souls Day This Week

all-saints-dayWe celebrate the Solemnity of All Saints (All Saints Day) on Tuesday, November 1 and the Commemoration of All the Faithful Departed (All Souls Day) on Wednesday, November 2 with Mass at 8:00 am (our usual daily Mass time), and Rosary at 6:30 pm and Mass at 7:00 pm both evenings in our church.

These are very special days in the cultures of so many of our parishioners who come from Mexico and other Latin American countries. El Día de los Muertos or The Day of the Dead has become popularized and even commercialized in this country but we get back to the faith-filled roots of these celebrations by joining together with our families in our homes and in prayer in our church this week.
