Happy Thanksgiving Everyone,
Blessings from our Lord to all of you as you are celebrating this special time--THANKSGIVING--with your families and friends. If you are reading this message before Thanksgiving Day, please join us for Thanksgiving Mass on Thursday, November 28th at 8am. Wherever you may be, please be thankful and always be safe in your travels. Most deadly accidents and serious problems can be avoided if we all follow the traffic laws and are patient with each other. Also, please remember to attend Holy Mass by visiting Masstimes.org for Catholic Masses near your traveling locations. Can we ever be too busy for God?
We thank Bishop Kemme, who came to us on Friday, November 15th to celebrate Holy Mass for our children and bless the statue of our Lady of Guadalupe for us to use in our church. May our Blessed Mother Mary keep us close to God and to each other now and forever. Did you know that we pray for our bishop by name at every Mass and for our Holy Father, Pope Francis, too? They always need our love and prayer so that they can minister to God’s children throughout the world with Jesus’ love for all human life from conception to natural death. Every person in the world, born or yet to be born, always needs to be loved by us with blessings from God.
Please keep the follow All Saints students and teachers in your daily prayer. 2nd Grade with Mrs. Samantha Somes: Neal Atsou Dzini, Nolan Atsou Dzini, Yenna Chang, Katherine Diaz, Jennifer Do, Jennifer Thi Do, Michael Eastman, Aria Henry, Joseph Le, Dawson Lippert, Eva Loveall, Baylee Medicus, Ailyn Mora, Kathlene Navarrete, Alan Nguyen, Hoc Nguyen, Jonathan Pham, Lucia Rolfe-Murray, Jocelyn Stewart, Jenna Thompson, Emilio Vargas, and Ian Wheaton. 3rd Grade with Mrs. Nancy Clark: Christopher Bramhall, Anthony Bui, John Do, Olivia Florentin, Caleb Guzman, Beyonca Irwin, Alejandro Jimenez, Minh Le, Diem Quynh Mai, Zemirah Melton, Daniel Miller-Rodriguez, Ariel Moreno Avila, Brayden Pham, Jamal Rolfe-Murray Jr and Olyve Tajchman.
Finally, let us enter the new liturgical season of Advent full of love for the Holy Trinity so that we will enjoy the fullness of joy, peace, love and the blessings from God to us in the person of Jesus at Christmas. Beginning this Sunday, our Mass readings will be taken from Cycle A.
PS: Due to the many Vietnamese in our parish, Bishop approved that one of our 4 weekend/Holy Day of Obligation Masses will be in Vietnamese beginning with Christmas Eve Mass. More details in next week’s bulletin.
Always love you all, Fr. Hien
