THIS WEEKEND
COMMEMORATION OF THE FAITHFUL DEPARTED
EVENING PRAYER
SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 10– 6:30 PM
We welcome people of all faiths who are seeking hope after the death of a loved one. If you know someone dealing with grief, invite them and attend this service with them.

ABOUT THE FEAST OF ALL SOULS...
On the Feast of All Souls (November 2) and throughout the month of November, Catholics honor departed loved ones through various traditions. Ultimately, we celebrate our belief in the resurrection of Jesus Christ,
which gave us the gift of eternal life. The service on November 10 will contain scriptures, prayers, and music filled with hope that will speak to people of all faiths.
