Next weekend we will celebrate the feasts of All Saints and All Souls. As I mentioned last week, please consider bringing a framed photograph of your deceased loved one to put on a window sill of the church or on the table in front of Mary’s altar. These photos will stay in place until Thanksgiving weekend and will be a reminder to all of us of our deceased loved ones’ presence with us at Sunday Eucharist.
Children celebrating their First Eucharist this year will be gathering for the annual “All Saints” procession at next weekend’s 11:15 mass. They will be dressed as their patron saints as another beautiful reminder of their desire to grow in holiness as they prepare for their First Communion. At this same liturgy, we will also be hosting twenty-five young people from The Temple-Tifereth Israel. These high school students are learning about the religions of the world, and we are delighted that they will join us at the celebration. Our visitors will be seated near the “candle shrine” on the west side of the church. Please stop and give them a warm St. Dominic welcome if you see them at this mass! Sixteen parishioners are anxiously preparing for their November trip to El Salvador. Next weekend we will have a special collection of two items that they will deliver on their trip. First, children are asked to bring in their non-chocolate Halloween candy for the children at Santo Domingo school. A large basket will be placed in the sanctuary for these donations. Second, we will be collecting new or gently used school bags/backpacks for the people of Santo Domingo. These will be given to adults and children, as the primary mode of transportation continues to be walking! These bags can help lighten their burden and I know will be appreciated by all! You may bring these gifts to any of the masses next weekend, or simply drop them off at the rectory.
Sorry I couldn’t be with you this weekend. Many of you may remember former parishioners Alex and Andy Rodman. Alex was our parish development director and coordinated our capital and endowment campaign while she was here. The Rodman’s and their three children recently moved to Paris, France, on a three-year work assignment for Andy. They graciously invited me for a visit and I happily accepted. See you next week!
Finally, on behalf of the staff and St. Dominic community, I would like to wish parishioner Daisy Scott a very Happy 100th Birthday!
