Would you like to purchase a memorial brick for the Holy Family Prayer for Life Garden? If so, please fill out the form found in the narthex and return it to the church office. Our next order will be placed December 1, 2014. This prayer garden is a place for prayer and conversion. The Intimate Holy Family Statue honors and memorializes unborn children who have lost their lives through abortion. By design, the statue is placed standing in the garden...the Holy Family, in a sense, praying right there with us. In this secluded space we ask the Holy Family to intercede for all of us as we pray for guidance, mercy, forgiveness, and charity in spreading the Good News of the beauty of Life…whether in the womb, challenged, disabled, elderly, in prison, or forgotten. Many thanks for your continued support for the maintenance of this prayer garden.

"Why would we doubt that our offerings for the dead bring them some consolation?
Let us not hesitate to help those who have died and to offer our prayers for them," said Saint John Chrysostom (Catechsim of the Catholic Church 1032).
On the day after All Saints comes All Souls, the Commemoration of the Faithful Departed, in which the Church prays for all who have died. As Catholics, we believe in Purgatory, that cleansing fire through which must pass "all who die in God's grace and friendship, but still imperfectly purified" (CCC, 1030).
Today, we pray for them, trusting that God will hear and answer our prayers that they know eternal light, happiness, and peace.
As we remember and pray for our loved ones who have died, the reality that we ourselves must one day die is also brought home to us as a gentle, insistent reminder. As Saint Ambrose wrote, "Death is then no cause for mourning, for it is the cause of mankind's salvation. Death is not something to be avoided, for the Son of God did not think it beneath his dignity, nor did he seek to escape it" (Office of Readings, Volume IV, p. 1539). May the souls of all the faithful departed through the mercy of God rest in peace.
The Last day to enroll in classes and qualify for sacramental preparation this year was Oct. 12
