THE WEDNESDAY REPORT: October 18, 2023

Dear Partners in Ministry,

I know you know this already, but: wow, this campus is beautiful, especially this time of year. 

Anyway: the season is moving along quickly! We're already at the Parish Feast Day weekend; All Saints and All Souls are just around the corner, and did I mention Advent starts in 46 days?

Feast Day Masses

A reminder that this weekend, Saint Noel celebrates our patronal feast day— the Memorial of the North American Marytrs, Isaac Jogues and Companions (St. Noel included). The 9:00 Mass is our big one, and I'd like as many of you as possible there. Of course, our other two Masses will be joyful celebrations too, so if that's when you can minister, also wonderful. Or sing two!

All Saints Day

Our All Saints Day (Wed, Nov 1) Masses are at 8:30 am and 7:00 pm. All are welcome to join me in Music Ministry at either Mass.

All Souls Day

Our annual All Souls Day Memorial Mass will take the place of our rehearsal on Thursday night, Nov 2. This will be an "all choir" Mass as well. Please arrive by 6:30 that evening for warmups and such. We remember all those who were buried from our parish in the last year, and invite all to remember the loved ones they have lost as well. The Mass ends with a memorial slideshow in honor of our deceased parishioners, with you as the soundtrack (we'll sing "In Your Dwelling Place" as the slideshow is presented.)

Selections are now listed below.
