All Saints is usually a holy day but this year it falls on a Saturday. Each time when this feast falls on a Saturday or a Monday (valid only in the United States) this feast is not a holy day of obligation (read holy day of opportunity). Thus, our weekend Mass schedule will not be affected and it will be as usual.
This year the Commemoration of All the Faithful Departed (All Souls’ Day) falls on a Sunday! We will have the Book of the Dead displayed close to the altar. You are invited to please bring photos of your loved ones to be placed in the sanctuary; there will be a special liturgical display for this purpose. At the entrance of the church there is a sign-up sheet where we ask you to please write the names of your deceased. We will be celebrating Masses for each one of them. During the month of November let’s raise our prayers for our beloved deceased, entrusting them to the Lord.
With sadness and spiritual joy I have to inform you that this past week two of our parishioners went to the Lord.
✝ Brian Coughlan – I knew Brian since I was ministering at Carmel Mission. Even though he lived in Carmel, each Sunday Brian came to the 9am Mass here in Carmel Valley. Despite his illness (very few people even knew he was so sick), he served joyfully with the hospitality ministry; most probably he served many of you with donuts and coffee. He loved our little church so much! On Saturday, November 15, at 11:00am, there will be a Memorial Mass for him followed by a reception in the parish hall.
✝ Allen “Sandy” Sandstrum – The Sandstrums were parishioners here for at least 30 plus years. They moved from the area just a couple of years ago. Unfortunately, Patricia passed away soon after they moved from Carmel Valley. This past week David, their son, informed me that Sandy passed away too. He said: “He loved coming to your church. Thank you for all you did for both my parents. They are together again, with God.”
This event entails socializing, a brief presentation by our pastor, and dinner. Our next scheduled event will be this coming Thursday, October 30, at 6pm in the parish hall. Last time we discussed the history of married clergy; this time we will talk about “Divorced & Communion in the Catholic Church.” Please confirm your attendance by email. Salmon, chicken and salad will be served. You are invited to bring your own wine, side-dish and/or dessert.
We are in need of ushers for Saturday 4:30pm Mass and Sunday 11:15am Mass. Ushering is not only about taking up the collection. It is also about welcoming, help with seating, cleaning the church pews before and after the Mass. Please let me know if you are interested in making our parish a little bit more hospitable and welcoming. Our goal is to have all Ushers scheduled together with other liturgical ministers (Lectors and Eucharistic Ministers). We are also in need of Lectors and Eucharistic Ministers especially at 4:30pm Mass. We will be redoing the schedule in the coming weeks so please let us know if you are interested to help.
