Beloved brother and sisters,
The parish finance council prepares the annual financial report with support from Stephen Desjardins, the parish business administrator. The fiscal year ended in June 2022, and in the spirit of transparency, I requested that the report be prepared and published for you to read. I am thankful for your generous giving and continue to count on you to give generously so the parish can maintain a buoyant financial standing. Please take a few minutes to read the bulletin insert and review the 2021-2022 financial numbers.
This year All Saints Day, Tuesday, November 1st is a Holy Day of Obligation. The day is dedicated to the saints of the Church, that is, all those who have attained heaven. I will be celebrating Mass at 7:00am in the Historic Church and 7:00pm in the Church.
All Souls’ Day, November 2nd, I will celebrate our annual Mass of Remembrance at 6:00pm in the Church. During this liturgy, all our faithful departed will be honored, especially those parishioners we have lost this year. Everyone is welcome to celebrate this special Mass for our loved one.
Yours always in prayer,
Fr. Bernard, OP
