Text Box: CONFIRMATION
       We cordially welcome His Excellency the Most Reverend Bishop Emeritus John Cummins who is visiting our Parish today on Sunday, November 8th at the 10:30 Mass to confirm our young parishioners: Meg Mansfield, Natalie Bailey, Cynthia Bailey, Maggie Dombrowski and Felicia Howard. 
       Please pray for their intention; for their parents and sponsors and also for our Bishop. After the Mass, there will be a reception in the Father Kozina Parish Hall with the Bishop.

A prayer for November
       Grant, O Lord, that my own heart may be touched, as yours is, at the passing of all souls into eternal life. You experienced deep and loving relationships while on earth and wept at the death of your friend, Lazarus.
       In great confidence, I pray for all my friends and loved ones who are no longer here on this journey of faith. I pray also for those who are facing at this moment their own last agony. How wonderful it is to know that I can support and comfort them in their final moments.
       When I am sad at the death of those who were close to me, may my sadness be firnily supported by my faith that life is merely changed not ended, that those I love are still with me though unseen. 0 Lord, increase my faith in the great mystery of eternal life. Teach me to live each day knowing that all here passes and that when we leave we will travel very lightly.
       May you, Lord Jesus Christ, welcome me and all those for whom I pray into eternal life at the moment pleasing to you.
       Glory be to you one God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, now and forever.
       Mary, Mother of the living, pray for us. Amen.	
Text Box: Sunday Scripture

              Death is not final for the faithful; it is merely a transition to the fullness of life. Today we gather to commemorate and honor all those faithful souls who lived before us and now have eternal life in heaven. The Saints in heaven set an example for us of how we are to live. Now they can intercede on our behalf. May the merits of their prayers, and our following of their example, bring us to share perfect joy with them in heaven. Today's reading from Revelation offers a visual of heaven, complete with sanctified people in white robes. The second reading calls us to remember that we are beloved children of God. In the Gospel, Jesus gives the Beatitudes, which are not so much moral laws, as promises for how things will be reversed at the end of time.
