My Dear Parishioners,
Are you ready for November? Many things will happen in November. First, please remember to attend the Feast of All Saints on Friday, November 1st. Obligated Holy Masses are Thursday at 6:30pm and Friday at 12noon and 6:30pm. We will need all the help for these Masses as we would for Sunday Masses such as greeters, ushers, servers, lectors, Eucharistic ministers, musicians... Second, on Saturday, November 2nd, at our 4pm Mass, we will pray especially for all the faithful departed—all souls, including those among our families and friends who have passed to eternal life. After Mass, everyone is invited to the Fischer Center for our parish feast day supper. Food will be provided; more details are in the bulletin. Third, please turn your clock back one hour on Saturday night, November 2nd, so that you will not be in church by yourself the next day for Mass.
Fourth, new parishioner registration forms are in the pews. If you have not registered with All Saints, please know that we would love to have you and your family with us. Please complete the registration form and place it in the collection basket during Mass or send/drop it to the church office as soon as you can. Everyone in All Saints Church’s boundary are to register at All Saints. In the gathering area, we post all the names of those who are currently registered with All Saints. If your name is not on it, then you are not yet registered. Please fill out a form so that we can add you into our system. We need your email too so that we can communicate with you and send you important information about our church and school. Thank you for your commitment to All Saints. Please know that as a member of All Saints parish, you’ll help us continue our good deeds to God, our worshiping to God and our providing of Catholic education to God’s little children. All Saints has formed and educated thousands and thousands of people for generations and we will continue doing so with your love and support. Thank you for registering with us!
Fifth, the highlight of November is to celebrate Thanksgiving with our loved ones. God bless our families. Finally, we will hold our annual stewardship renewal in November & December. Let us pray that everyone will follow Jesus with their hearts, minds and souls. Everyone has been empowered by the Holy Spirit to be fully alive as missionary disciples of Jesus Christ to the world.
Love you all, Fr. Hien
Father Hien Nguyen
