Anyone who would like their deceased relative's name to be read during the rosary lead by Fr. Ptak before mass on All Souls Day beginning at 5:30 p.m., please put their name(s) in an envelope and place in the collection box or send to office via email to email@example.com by October 30.
RESPECT LIFE CORNER
“The mystery of the redemption of the human person is rooted in the loving involvement of God with human suffering. Hope is always possible. To those who care for the sick, the scene of the Cross provides a way of understanding that even when it seems that there is nothing more to do there remains much to do, because ‘remaining’ by the side of the sick is a sign of love and of the hope that it contains. Healed by Jesus, we become men and women called to proclaim his healing power and provide care for our neighbors, until the very end.”
