News from Fr. Vyverman
This weekend, as we celebrate the feasts of All Saints and All Souls Day, we truly remember what our goal is as Christians: We are trying to get to Heaven. Through the example of the saints and those who have gone before us in faith, may they inspire us to lead better lives and strengthen not only our faith, but the faith of those around us. On our bulletin cover, we have a special listing of all those parishioners who have died in the past year (since the last time we celebrated All Souls day). Please keep them in your prayers this weekend and especially throughout this month of November, as we remember in a special way, all those who have died.
On Tuesday, Bishop Bradley will be joining us for a special Mass with our School Church. This is his final “Welcome back to school” Mass, even though school has been underway for our students and staff for quite a few weeks now. In particular, he is joining us for the feast of our patron, Saint Charles Borromeo. Please join us, not only for the feast of our patron, but also to gather in prayer around our Bishop.
You may have heard or noticed that we are doing some emergency repairs on the activities building. Over the years, a number of cracks have developed around the columns and especially on the outside of the south gym wall. A lot of water has entered the building and a few bricks are in danger of falling off the building. These repairs should help keep the water out of the walls so that they can dry out. We are hoping that all these repairs will be completed within the next month.
