Happy almost New Year!!!
Wednesday will begin a New Year – 2020. On that day we, as a church, will celebrate the memory of Our Lady – we will recall that Mary had to face a great deal of change. But we know that she did it confident that God was by her side through it all.
This past year brought some change and the New Year will probably bring change as well. And that is okay. But some people are afraid of change and avoid it. And that is okay too. However, sometimes you cannot avoid it. So therefore, we need to be like Mary and trust that God will be by our side whenever change touches our life.
So this New Year let us pray for wisdom, courage and the ability to accept and to live with whatever changes come our way.
Let us pray that 2020 will be a blessed New Year for all!!!

This week we close out another month in this calendar year. As we begun the month of November we have two liturgical celebrations that remind us of people who have gone before us in faith.
On November 1st, the Church celebrates the Solemnity of All Saints. This is when we remember all the holy men and women and children who have gone before us and are now sitting in the Kingdom of Heaven. Let us pray that all these saints will intercede to God for all of us as we continue our journey on this earth.
Traditionally on November 2nd, the Church celebrates the Feast of All Souls. This liturgical celebration commemorates all our deceased loved ones. This year the Masses that will be celebrated on the weekend will be offered for All Souls. In addition, our Books of the Dead will be enthroned on the high altar for the month. Peace,

This past Monday we shall enter in to the season of autumn. Summer will be over, officially, even if the temperatures don’t show it. Though the mornings and evening recently have been rather cool. I will not complain. I prefer the cool weather – fall and winter to the summer. So I am a happy camper when it comes to this changes in season.
