Help Stop Assisted Suicide Bill
At the Patio Parish Hall door, there will be a formal paper to sign to help STOP this bill from passing. You must be a registered voter to sign. Please take the time today to act on this issue.
Dear Parish Family,
It is important for all of us to be mindful of our fellow parishioners who are sick and those persons who have died. Each weekend at the Masses, we have mentioned the names of the sick and the deceased. We will continue to read the names we receive for our loved ones during the intercessions at the weekend Masses. These names will also be listed in the Bulletin each week. We hope and pray, this will help all of us to be a caring, thoughtful parish family, very aware of each other and to reach out to one another.
Happy Thanksgiving Day
Mass at 10 a.m. (The only Mass of the day)
Please bring a bag of non-perishable items to share with those in need. Following the Mass, there will be a reception in the Parish Hall. We hope and pray your day will begin by praising and thanking God, then joining us for our Parish Mass. If you plan ahead, you may be surprised that by taking time for Mass everything gets done.

Wonderful Opportunity For Catholic Non-Eucharistic Liturgy Of Prayer
On Sunday, December 13, we will have Compline (Night Prayer) at 7:30 p.m. in the church. Compline is part of the official daily Prayer of the Church, and the concluding liturgy of the day.
It involves a mix of chant in Latin by a schola (choir) with the assembly chanting in English. This is a contemplative unaccompanied liturgy in which we sing hymns, psalms, and other parts of the liturgy. Compline takes less than 30 minutes. If you are looking for a beautiful, peaceful way to end Sunday and begin your week, come join in this experience!
