Weekly or monthly donations and tithes can now be made via direct deposit! This can be done by clicking on the new “Online Giving” link on the parish website. The link is user-friendly and should be self-explanatory.
- To set up recurring donations, click the “First Time?” button and create an account.
- One-time “Quick” gifts are also possible through this link without logging in.
- A ConnectNow Giving App can also be downloaded to the phone, should that float one’s boat.
While direct deposit is encouraged, check and cash donations are still welcome. However, the envelope system will be discontinued at the end of November. After that time, for cash donations to be credited for tax purposes, please be sure to put your name and address on the envelope that is used so it can be identified and recorded. Thank you!
Although not carrying as strictly a penitential tone as does Lent, the Church does mark this preparation period before Christmas with penitential sentiments. Liturgically, violet vestments are worn on Sundays and on weekdays that have no saint assigned, the Gloria in excelsis is absent, the joyful Alleluia, although present, is not as frequent, and the organ is subdued. All are encouraged to follow these sentiments with some suitable penance and devotions in preparation for the arrival of the Christ Child in four short weeks, perhaps an added Mass during the week, a family Advent wreath and prayers, small sacrifices that add straw to the home Manger, among other things that better serve to keep Christ in Christmas.
All Saints will be pleased to host professor and author Dr. Peter Kwasniewski on Wednesday, January 9 at 7:30 PM. Dr. Kwasniewski will present Why Catholic Tradition is Not Optional or Incidental — Especially in the Liturgy . Mark your calendars now; more details to follow later in the month.
Feast of the Immaculate Conception is on Saturday, December 8, and is a holyday of obligation. As it is a Saturday, the holyday Mass schedule will be modified: please note that two Masses will be offered in the morning at 7:00 AM (low) and 9:00 AM (solemn High).
2019 Calendars from the FSSP are now available in the vestibule. Suggested donation is $10/calendar. Makes a great stocking stuffer!
