2nd Collection ~ Guadalajara – There will be a second collection today, Sunday, November 1st, for the FSSP Mission of Guadalajara, Mexico.
November 6th Friday Devotions – Mass will be at 6:30pm. A Holy Hour of Exposition with Benediction and Confessions directly follows Mass.
Candlelight Rorate Mass – On the first Saturday of Advent, December 5th, we will have a special 6:00am Sung Mass. This Rorate Mass is lit only by candlelight. Because it is a votive Mass in Mary’s honor, white vestments are worn instead of Advent violet. In the dimly lit setting, we will prepare to honor the Light of the world, Who is soon to be born, and offer praise to God for the gift of Our Lady. As the Mass proceeds and sunrise approaches, the church becomes progressively brighter, illumined by the sun as our Faith is illumined by Christ.
New Altar Frontals – In order to add to the beauty of the sanctuary and the solemnity of the liturgy, we are looking into having Altar Frontals made. These would cover the altar front from the mensa or altar top to the floor. We can currently purchase a single custom made frontal for between $250 – $350, which would normally cost between $1000 – $1250. Depending on contributions we could use up to five frontals, one for each of the liturgical colors. If you are interested in contributing to have one of these made please let us know.
FSSP Calendars/Christmas Cards – Next Sunday the 2015 FSSP Calendars will be available outside of Church for $13.00 each. Supplies are limited. We will also have a limited supply of free 2015 Christmas Cards available as well.

Your envelopes must be turned in today. You can deposit them in the collection basket.

The indulgence is plenary each day from the 1st to the 8th of November; on other days of the year it is partial. (Enchiridion of Indulgences) An indulgence is partial or plenary according as it removes either part or all of the temporal punishment due to sin.
