Don't miss this week's All Saints' and All Souls' celebrations! All Saints' is a holy day of obligation. Our All Souls' prayers will be perfected by the St Mary's choir's singing of the Duruflé setting of the Requiem Mass. This will be a privileged opportunity to hear one of the 20th century's greatest choral works sung in prayer and praise to God and for the repose of the souls of the faithful departed - that is, sung in the context and to the end for which it was composed. This Mass will be a great milestone in the life of our community, and as well a great opportunity to invite friends and family to worship with us "in the beauty of holiness."
ALL SAINTS' DAY
Holy Day of Obligation
Holy Mass: Wednesday, Nov. 1st, 8AM & 6PM
Rejoice we all, and praise the Lord, celebrating a holy-day in honor of all the Saints In whose solemnity the angels are joyful, and glorify the Son of God.
ALL SOULS' DAY
8AM & 7PM
At the 7PM Mass, the choir of St Mary's will sing the Maurice Duruflé setting of the Requiem Mass. Come hear one of the great works of 20th century choral art prayerfully performed in the setting and to the end for which it was composed. Mass will be in the Ordinariate Form, and Fr West will be the preacher.
A book of remembrance is being compiled for the names of those faithfully departed for whom these Masses will be offered. If you would like to add a name and donate a stipend, please contact Becky at the parish office (email; 843.722.7696).
All Souls' Rosary
At 12pm on All Souls' Day (11/2), Fr Allen will lead a "rosary walk" through the St Mary's churchyard and then be available to hear confessions so that you may gain the Indulgences the Church offers on behalf of the Holy Souls in Purgatory. Learn about these indulgences here!
