Month of the Souls in Purgatory

The month of November is dedicated to the Holy Souls in Purgatory. The Church commemorates all her faithful children who have departed from this life, but have not yet attained the joys of heaven.

One of the most commonly recited of Catholic prayers in times past, this prayer has fallen into disuse in the last few decades. Prayer for the dead, however, is one of the greatest acts of charity we can perform, to help them during their time in Purgatory, so that they can enter more quickly into the fullness of heaven.

ADVENT TREE

As you prepare to celebrate this Christmas season with your families and friends, please keep in mind those in need.

One way to brighten their holiday is to participate in the Annual Advent Giving Tree project sponsored by St. Mark’s Social Ministry Committee. This year the Committee will be collecting gifts for the Catholic Family Center (helping clients from Children and Family Services) and the Women’s Care Center (supporting mothers and babies in need). The tree will be displayed in the Narthex beginning the weekend of November 18/19.

Please take an ornament tag, then choose a gift from the suggestions listed on the tag, attach the tag to the gift and return the gift unwrapped no later than 12:30 PM, Sunday, December 2. The tag assures that the gift will get to the intended child. Some teens will request store Gift Cards. If you purchase a Gift Card, please put the Gift Card and tag in an envelope marked Advent Giving Tree and put the envelope in the wooden collection box in the Narthex.

Thank you for your continued support and generosity. May God bless you during this holiday season. If you have any questions, please contact Susan McCoy at 441-9194.
