We’re really enjoying our monthly liturgical displays!   November is such a lovely month…a month of feasts and family tradition. The joy we have as we contemplate the “communion of Saints” is tempered with the holy obligation we all share to pray for the Holy Souls in Purgatory.  This month’s display contains elements of barrenness…bare branches and dried flowers remind us that we are approaching Advent.  Images of the Saints in the glory of Heaven, and the Holy Souls help us to keep our focus on eternity.  Fr. Alder is attired in black today…the first time we’ve used the black vestments.

Happy Feast of All Souls…may the souls of all the faithfully departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace…

Blessings,
