Mass for the Thirty-First Sunday in Ordinary Time October 31, 2021

Jesus replied, “The first is this: Hear, O Israel! The Lord our God is Lord alone! You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength. The second is this: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. There is no other commandment greater than these.” 
Mark 12:29-31

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.
