FATHER ABEL’S COLUMN – NOVEMBER 1ST, 2015

All-Saints

Happy All Saints Day

On the Weekend of November 7th & 8th, I will be speaking at all the Masses, about the Generation of Faith campaign that we have been involved in since the spring of this year. I am happy to say that we are at $700,000.00 to date. Our goal is 1.4 million. So we are half way to our goal. On the weekend of November 7th & 8th, I will be asking you to consider a pledge over the next 5 years. I will explain more about this next weekend, but I wanted to give you the heads up!

Also, on Thanksgiving Day, after the 9am Mass, I am happy to tell you that we will be having a hot breakfast for all of our parishioners as a way of celebrating this special day together. If you are interested in attending, may I ask you to please call the rectory and leave your name and number and also how many people will be attending so I can make sure that there is plenty of food for everyone. The breakfast is Free!

Finally, as you know, Msgr. Howard Basler passed away two weeks ago. Msgr. Basler had been coming to St. Sebastian every weekend, until recently, for over 40 years. I am going to celebrate a special Mass on Saturday, December 5th at 11am. I will celebrate the Mass and I have invited Msgr. Hardiman to give the homily. I hope many of you can attend.

Thanks for your support.
