All Souls Day: November 2

Remembering our deceased loved ones Sunday, November 2, is the Feast of All Souls, the day on which we remember in a special way our deceased family members and friends. At our 10:30 a.m. Mass, we will remember the people whose funeral Masses were celebrated at the parish during the past year. We would also like to remember the close family members of parishioners who died this past year. Please help us prepare for the liturgy by contacting the parish office (882-0925 or rezparish@comcast.net) with the names of close family members to be read out loud at the November 2 Mass at 10:30 a.m. We would be grateful to receive the names before October 24.

Intentions: Lord, hear our prayer…

A book for prayer intentions is located at the front (Tabernacle side) of the church. We are invited to write out our prayer intentions for the church, the world, our communities and our families and friends. At each Mass all of these intentions will be part of our prayer.

A Prayer for DISCIPLES

Loving Father, keep our family within the embrace of your loving providence.

2nd Annual Food Fight Challenge

The religious education students are in the midst of the 2nd annual Food Fight challenge, "Fast, so that others may Feast".

We take up the task of being instruments of reconciliation in our communities and world, working for peace, justice and love. (USCCB)

During the next month of October, students have been asked to ‘fast so that others may feast’, to discuss the possibility of giving up some food or activity during the month of October. For example, instead of going to the movies, take a walk through Mines Falls; instead of picking up take-out for dinner, have soup and sandwiches. Use the money you save to purchase food. Take this opportunity to talk with your family about how we work for justice in our own community, and how a small sacrifice by each of us can have a significant impact.

SACRAMENT OF THE SICK: Nov 16

...for those who are suffering

Are there sick persons among you? They should ask for the presbyters (priests) of the church. They in turn are to pray over the sick (James 5:13-14). After the 10:30 a.m. Mass on Sunday, November 16, Father John will administer the Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick to any members of our community who are suffering physically, emotionally or spiritually. We ask the help of our parishioners to provide transportation for those who are homebound and would like to be present at the Mass and to be anointed.
