We will celebrate two Masses on November 1, the Solemnity of All Saints and a holy day of obligation: a morning Mass at 8 AM and our regularly scheduled 12:10 PM Mass.
The first movie I remember seeing was Cecil B DeMille’s “The Ten Commandments”. I believe I was in the 2nd grade and the whole school was marched over to a local movie theater to watch it. Itmade a very powerful impression on me, and I remember scenes to this very day.
Ash Wednesday is February 22 and begins the 40-day Lenten period of prayer, fasting, and almsgiving to prepare for the celebration of the passion, death, and resurrection of Jesus. Below is our Mass and service schedule:
8 AM – Mass
12:10 PM – Mass
4 PM – Children’s Service
5 PM – Service
7 PM – Mass
Ashes will be distributed during each of the Masses and services. Ashes will not be distributed on an individual basis at any other time.
