DAYLIGHT SAVINGS TIME ENDS SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 2.  Remember to turn your clocks back next weekend!

 

FOOD FOR THE POOR:  Please join us the weekend of November 1st & 2nd to hear Rev. Thomas R. Bouterie speak at all the Masses about a ministry providing direct relief to the poor throught Latin America and the Caribbean.  Fr. Tom will share personal witness about Food for the Poor's mission to care for the destitute as a means of living out the Gospel mandate to love one another.

 

ALL SOUL'S DAY: SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 2

All are invited to write the names of their deceased loved ones and friends on the All Soul's envelopes located on the tables at the Church entrances.  The envelopes may then be placed in the Sunday collection basket or returned to the Parish Office. An intention for all of these names will be prayed at Masses during the All Soul's Novena which begins on Sunday, All Soul's Day and concludes nine days later.

In addition, all are invited to our annual Mass of Remembrance at the 12 noon Mass on Sunday, November 2. Families who have lost loved ones during the past year are especially invited to this Mass and, if they would like the names of their loved ones to be read during the Prayer of the Faithful, they may call the Parish Office at 444-0272 ext 26.

Feast of All Souls Photo Remembrance

We invite you to bring pictures of your loved ones who have gone before us to be displayed in Church during the month of November. Kindly have your photo in a frame, with your name & phone number on the back so we can return it to you. We recommend that the photo be no larger than 5x7. This is a wonderful way to remember our loved ones and to honor their memory during the month of November. It would be helpful to have your photo no later than Friday, 10/31. Please drop them off at the parish office.

 

WOMEN'S  CORNERSTONE 2014 IS COMING:  Save the date!  November 14th and 15th at St. Luke's with Church of the Nativity. "Put your life on pause and let in the Spirit" Women's Cornerstone is an opportunity to reflect upon, renew and strengthen your faith. Take the journey....Come to Cornerstone - You'll be glad you did!  Please take a brochure from the table in the Church Foyer.

 

Covenant House Christmas Helpers:  Each year, a week or so before Christmas, St. Luke's takes a bus trip to Covenant House in New York City to throw a Christmas Party for homeless teenagers living there.  It is always a memorable event for the teens as well as the group from St. Luke's. Not everyone can make the trip each year but there are many ways you can help before the event. The following is a list of ways you can assist in preparing for the party. Please see attached form.
