My Dear Parishioners,
Blessings from our Lord be with you all. Please join me in praying for the repose of the soul of Paul Miller, who was 94 years old when he died. As a long-time parishioner, Paul loved our church and school, and he had the greatest desire for the best education for our children of All Saints. God bless him and please join me in expressing our sympathy to his long-time wife Lucy, their children and many of their loved ones and friends. I am blessed to celebrate his funeral Mass in our church.
We are in the middle of November. Please remember to pray daily, especially for your deceased loved ones and all souls. At All Saints, we have been praying for all souls at every Mass. We are praying for the poor souls and all souls so that they will be saints. It’s a win-win situation for them and for us, for when they are in heaven, they will help us to be in heaven with them too. Thank you to the many people who wrote down the names of their deceased loved ones in our Book of Remembrance and on the All Souls Envelopes to be prayed for every day. Thank you for your good deeds.
As you know, we are getting to the end of 2020. How is your relationship with God and how are you doing with your stewardship way of life for our parish? Please know that everything in this life will pass by, except your love and faith in God and your good deeds for others. Every day let your faith lead you and let your love for God be known before God and others. I trust that you will be just and generous to God in our parish with your time, talent, treasure. I trust that you will do your best/fair share so that I can continue to provide Catholic education to your/our children in from pre-Kindergarten to high school. Please know that our children are dependent on your faithfulness to our church and school. Today, I am encouraging everyone to pray for our children of All Saints, especially the following two confirmation classes as they are preparing themselves to be confirmed in six months.
