MORNING TEA AFTER 8AM MASS
After the 8am Mass this morning, there will be morning tea up at the old Monastery. All are welcome to participate and its a great opportunity to meet someone new or catch with someone we haven’t had a chance to do so with in a while.
NOVEMBER – MONTH OF THE HOLY SOULS
November is traditionally dedicated to the Holy Souls. It is our duty to pray for them especially those who have no one to pray. This is our Catholic obligation. During November, Masses will be celebrated for our dear departed.
