THIRTY-FIRST SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME
November Dead List- November is the month when we remember our dearly departed. We remember them and pray for them out of gratitude for all they did and were for us. We remember all those who, down the years by their faith, their Christian witness, their heroic deeds of self-sacrifice have inspired countless others to give more of themselves in service to God and humanity. Envelopes are available for the names of our deceased loved ones. There are ten Masses booked for the month of November: See Mass Intentions.

PRAYER OF ST. FRANCIS OF ASSISI : PRAYER FOR PEACE Lord, make me an instrument of your peace, Where there is hatred, let me sow love; where there is injury, pardon; where there is doubt, faith; where there is despair, hope; where there is darkness, light; where there is sadness, joy; O Divine Master, grant that I may seek not so much to be consoled as to console; to be understood as to understand; to be loved as to love. For it is in giving that we receive; it is in pardoning that we are pardoned; and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life. Amen.
ALL SAINTS DAY. This feast day grew out of the love and devotion of God's people. The Church chose this feast to honour God in His saints, in whom He has shown Himself so wonderful. We thank God as the creator of all holiness and for the graces He has showered upon them. Some saints needed to pass through purgatory to be purified before they were fit for the Lord's presence. They stayed there until they were ready to see God. They are with him now forever. A few saints have their own feast day but as there are not enough days in the year we cannot celebrate a special day for each of the saints. Some stayed close to God all their lives. Others found Him along the way. Some led good lives without too much difficulty. Others made big mistakes, but were truly sorry for their sins and drew close to God. They made it! We celebrate their journey that led to eternal happiness with God. We celebrate our own family members, relatives, neighbours and friends whom we believe are in heaven. Today we can rejoice in our hearts with all the saints in heaven. We can make up our own prayer to them, thanking them for the witness of their lives. We can thank them too, for helping us overcome our difficulties and temptations. We ask them to help us on our own journey through life.
