Welcome


PRAYING FOR THE DEAD. The month of November is a special month when we turn our focus to praying especially for our beloved deceased brothers and sisters.

It makes sense from a natural perspective that we would do this. Nature is speaking of things passing. The warm weather slowly has gone away. The daylight is getting shorter and shorter. The trees are shedding their leaves and everything around us speaks of endings.

Likewise, in our Church calendar endings are on our mind. This month will see the end of our Church year and December will bring a new year with the start of Advent. We began the month with a celebration of all the saints in Heaven, and the next day we prayed for all souls, especially for those in Purgatory and those who have no one to pray for them.

But, also remember that November is also a time to make it personal for each of us. We have probably lost a loved one during the course of this year. We have many other loved ones who have already gone before us. I encourage everyone to come to Mass more than the usual this month. Enroll your deceased loved ones in our Book of Life and come and pray for them by name that they will know God's eternal embrace in Heaven. Praying for our loved ones is one of the most important things we can do. As you know, we have Masses on Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday at 8 a.m., and Tuesday, and Thursday, at 6 p.m.

Find some time and bring your family to Mass during the week and pray for your loved ones who are making their way home to Heaven.

MARIAN MEDAL RECIPIENT: VIRGINIA MARCHAND. I am also so excited to let the parish know that Ginny Marchand has been named by Bishop DaCunha to be this year's parish recipient of the Marian Medal. Since 1968, the Diocese has awarded this medal to recognize those who show a special devotion to their parish. Ginny for many, many years has shown tremendous devotion to both St. Margaret's and St. Mary's. She serves with a humble joy that is a witness to her faith. We are so grateful for her service and so thrilled that she will receive this honor.

Join me on Sunday, November 19 at 3:00 p.m. at St. Mary's Cathedral in Fall River as Ginny and all of the other recipients receive their Marian Medals from the Bishop in a special prayer service.

Congratulations Ginny! And thank you so much for all that you do for our parish!

 

 

Peace, love,
and prayers,

Fr. Tom
