Thursday, November 1, will be All Saints’ Day. This is an opportunity to celebrate all saints, known and unknown, who have reached Heaven and now live in union with our Lord. The Catholic Church teaches that all individuals who have gone to Heaven and are in perfect holiness with the Lord are saints; however, not every one of these saints is officially recognized by the Catholic Church. Thus, beyond the thousands of saints officially recognized and canonized by the Church, there are even more who are not recognized. On All Saints’ Day we celebrate the holy example of all those unnoticed saints and ask them to intercede for us in our journey to Christ.
Remember, All Saints’ Day is a Holy Day of Obligation, meaning we must go to Mass! Mass will be at 5:30 PM at St. Charles & 7:00 PM at St. Bridget’s. CDs of the Kateri Novena will be available at these Masses.
