Veteran’s Day

Pray For Our Veterans, Their Families, and For Peace This Veterans Day – November 11th

 

We grateful for and inspired by those veterans who have given their lives for our country. Thank you!

Loving God, We ask for blessings on all those who have served their country in the armed forces. We ask for healing for the Veterans who have been wounded, in body and soul, in conflicts around the globe. We pray especially for the young men and women, in the thousands, who are coming home with injured bodies and traumatized spirits. Bring solace to them, O Lord; may we pray for them when they cannot pray. We ask for, echoing John Paul II, an end to wars and the dawning of a new era of peace, as a way to honor all the veterans of past wars.

Have mercy on all our Veterans. Bring peace to their hearts and peace to the regions they fought in. Bless all the soldiers who served in noncombative posts; May their calling to service continue in their lives in many positive ways

November is National Black Catholic History Month

Did you know that November is National Black Catholic History Month? To celebrate this month and the heritage and history of Black Catholics, the STA Social Concerns Ministry will welcome Susan Rich to speak at Masses the weekend of November 6th-7th to give witness to the life of Black Catholics who are on the pathway to canonization.  There are currently six individuals, whose beautiful stories of faith and commitment to live the works of mercy will inspire all of us to learn more: Sister Thea Bowman, Henriette Delille, Pierre Toussaint, Mother Mary Lange, Fr. Augustus Tolton, and Julia Greeley. Susan will speak to the life and works of the Venerable Henriette Delille who was born in New Orleans in 1812 and is the first US native born African American being considered for sainthood.  She founded the Sisters of the Holy Family in 1842.  Please welcome Susan to our faith community next weekend.  For more information on Black Catholics who are on their way to sainthood, please visit:  https://www.nbccongress.org/black-catholic-sainthood.html.  For more information on the Venerable Henriette Delille, please visit: Henriette Delille.

All Souls Day

All Souls Day – November 2

Commemoration of All the Faithful Departed

As we remember our faithful departed during the month of November, we must remember that our prayers for the dead bind us to them in the communion of faith and life promised by Jesus to all who believe in Him. All Souls day is a commemoration of all those who have fallen asleep in Christ marked with the sign of faith and who, we pray, may one day join the saints around the great banquet table of the Lamb. We pray for the dead; we pray for the forgiveness of all their sins; and we pray that God, in his great mercy, will take them to himself.

Please pray for those deceased members of our parish family.

The following links are to the bulletins with the names of deceased parishioners from the previous year.
