    the parish office to make an appointment with a priest. Learn more about this beautiful sacrament here:

    The Sacrament of Baptism: Call the parish office to learn the necessary requirements and make an appointment with Fr. Kenneth Metz to have your

    child baptized. Ask us about the requirements for Godparents.

    The Sacrament of Marriage: Getting mar r ied? Congratulations! The process of being marr ied in the Catholic Church could take 6 months to

    a year to complete. Please contact Ann Cammarata at the parish office as soon as possible after your engagement if you would like to be married at All

    Souls Catholic Church.

    Anointing of the Sick: Please call the parish office. The Rite of Anointing tells us there is no need to wait until a person is at the point of death to

    receive the Sacrament. Did you know that the Sacrament may be repeated if the person becomes sick again? A person should be anointed before

    surgery when a dangerous illness is the reason for the intervention.

    Eucharistic Ministry to the Sick and Homebound: If you are unable to attend Mass, please call the par ish office so we may assist you in having

    a visit from one of our ministers or one of our priests.

    Catholic Funeral and Burial: Please call the par ish office or have the funeral home director contact us to ar r ange the Funeral Mass and for

    more information about burial at All Souls Catholic Cemetery.

    "Everyone who belongs to the truth listens to my voice." Once they

    wear the crown, earthly kings don't have to win the allegiance of their subjects; if you live in the kingdom, you're part of the kingdom and are under the authority of the king. But things are different with Jesus. As the Lord told Pilate, "my kingdom does not belong to this world." His subjects are not given by default. His kingdom is not established in a particular place or even in a particular time. Rather, the realm of the King of the universe encompasses all the other kingdoms of the world. And everyone, regardless of any earthly allegiance, is invited to be the privileged subject of this King. The key to entering this kingdom, as Jesus says, is to listen to his voice. Heeding the voice--the teachings, the guidance, the commandments--of Jesus enables us to belong to this kingdom that is founded upon truth. Jesus defines his authority in these terms: "For this I was born and for this I came into the world, to testify to the truth." As Christians, we profess to follow the King of kings. Therefore, as members of his royal realm, we too should be about the business of testifying to the truth. Of course there are many ways to defend the truth in our modern age. Upholding the dignity of life and protecting religious liberty are two examples of the pressing issues of our day. But even more fundamental is the basic claim we make: that Jesus is in fact God- made-man and that, through his death and resurrection, he has saved us from our sins. This Gospel message, both simple and profound, is a truth that never grows old. Let us boldly profess the truth of the Gospel as we invite all those we encounter to join in the joy of the kingdom of Jesus. LPI, Inc.

    This Thanksgiving, may all our homes be blessed with an abundance of

    joy, peace, and love from above, and may the warmth of these gifts open all our hearts to the hungry, the homeless, and the poor so that they too may delight in these blessings. Meetings 1st (Social) and 3rd (Business) Tuesdays 7pm, 2504 S Oak Ave, Sanford.

    October 28, 2015 My Dear Parishioners,

    As All Souls Catholic Church continues to grow in spirit and in relationship with each other and with Jesus Christ; we also continue to strive to be a more welcoming faith community which offers a beautiful worship experience for everyone – especially on Sundays.

    Beginning the weekend of the First Sunday of Advent (November 28th and 29th) our new Mass times will be as follows: Church: Chapel Saturday Vigil Mass 5:00pm Sunday 8:00am Sunday 9:30am, 11am, 12:30 (Spanish) Latin Mass Sunday 2:00pm

    The changes in our Mass times are made to enable Father Ed McCarthy, Father Ken Metz and myself to better serve the needs of the entire community and ensure we are seen in rotation at all of our weekend Masses at both the Historic Chapel and the Church.

    Our Christmas Mass schedule and Holy Day Mass times will remain the same. For those of you who may be concerned about reserved Sunday Mass intentions for the remainder of 2015 and in 2016 at our former Mass times, be assured your intentions will be remain on our Mass calendar and will be moved as follows: 8:30am (Spanish) intentions will be moved to the 12:30 (Spanish) 10:00am Mass intentions will be moved to the 9:30am Mass. 11:30am Mass intentions will be moved to the 11:00am Mass.

    I acknowledge that change can be a challenge for some, but I am confident that the end result will be one of spiritual growth and renewal that will bear much fruit!

    I thank you in advance for your understanding. I hope and pray that these changes help all of us grow stronger as a community of faithful believers in Jesus Christ.

    In His Service,

    Father Gilbert Medina, Pastor
