Christian Catholic Families of Bethlehem
Next weekend, October 31 & November 1st, our brothers and sisters representing the Christian Catholic Families of Bethlehem will be selling Crucifixes, religious art work, and rosaries, all made of olive wood which is native to Israel and Bethlehem. Since tourism has greatly depleted, Christian families in the Holy Land, who depend on tourists, have been greatly affected. Sale of these goods will help them very much and also give you the opportunity to have an authentic “connection” from the Holy Land. Please browse and buy some articles. It is for a good cause and also a help to your personal devotion.
For more information please email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Compline Evening Prayer
There was a delightful turnout of people for our first Compline (Evening Prayer) this past Sunday. Our next liturgy will be Sunday, November 8, at 7:30 p.m. Our goal is to have this liturgy the 2nd Sunday evening of each month after the Sunday Sip. Hopefully the cantors/choir will grow in numbers.
October was our first “trial run” of Compline, and if anyone in attendance has an observance/suggestion regarding lighting or readability, please contact Terry Hicks through the info in the bulletin. Keep in mind that all our liturgies are a dialogue between cantor/choir/assembly. Everyone has their part in any act of worship.
Baby Bottle Drive Campaign
Please remember to bring your baby bottles, filled with donations, next week!
All funds raised benefit Vientre Pregnancy Center, a pro-life organization that serves the community free of charge. For more information on Vientre Pregnancy Center, call (323) 490-7327.
All Souls Memorial Mass for All our Deceased Loved Ones
This will take place on Monday, November 2nd at 7:30 p.m. followed by a reception in the Parish Hall. Everyone is welcome.
We will remember all those who died during this past year and all our deceased loved ones.
You are invited to bring to the Mass photographs (preferably in a picture frame) of your deceased loved ones and to place these photographs on a special memorial table near the sanctuary, so that everyone can see them during the Mass. In all of these ways, we will remember, honor, and pray for our loved ones who have died.

It is that time of year again! The holidays are just around the corner and the Art and Environment Committee is busy at work planning the decorations for the interior of the church.
