All Saints' and All Souls' Day Celebrations

During the month of November, we remember those who have gone before us...

Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord.
And let perpetual light shine upon them.

What is the difference between All Saints' Day and All Souls' Day? Watch this video:

All Saints' Day is a day we celebrate all those who have died and gone to heave. It is a holy day of obligation. St. Ann's will offer Mass at 9:00am and 7:00pm on Wednesday, Nov. 1st in celebration of All Saints' Day. 

On Thursday, Nov. 2nd, All Souls' Day, our Church will pray for all those who have died at Mass offered at 7:00pm.  Let's come together as one family to remember the faithful departed and to pray for their souls. Throughout the month, we will continue to pray for these souls and we encourage you to write the name of your deceased loved ones in our Book of the Decesaed that will be on display in the Commons and share a photo, holy card or rememberance of loved ones who have gone before us in faith. Please be sure to add the name of your loved one and your name on the back of the photo so that we can return it to you at the end of the month.

May the souls of all the faithful departed,
through the mercy of God,
rest in peace.

Amen.
