    All RELIGIOUS EDUCATION CLASSES WILL BE CANCELLED in Thorp and Owen for All Saints Day Wednesday, November 1, 2017. Passing on the faith is the most fundamental task of being a disciple of Christ. We encourage you to attend mass as a family to celebrate this Holy Day of Obligation.

    TREASURES FROM OUR TRADITION This week we have in All Souls’ Day a commemoration that is linked to the Halloween customs. The big-spending sugar shock holiday is a long way removed from Thursday’s grateful remembrance of the souls who are hidden from our sight, but alive to Christ. Old pagan superstitions might find us holding our breath when going by the graveyard, whereas others might actually go to the cemetery to tend the family graves, to share good food, and remember dear ones. Nowhere does a culture embrace this day as fully as in Mexico. The “Day of the Dead” is a national holiday that unfolds over three full days. For three thousand years, the indigenous people of Mexico have been mocking death in an annual festival, and the invading Spaniards were shocked at the spectacle. To the Aztecs, life was a dream, and death was the entry into full life. Skulls were thus a symbol of joy and release from life’s sorrows. The missionaries found all this a bit creepy, but they moved the three-day feast from August to synchronize it with the Christian calendar. So today, graves are decorated, altars are built in the home to honor the family dead, children feast on candy skulls, and people dress up in elaborate skeleton outfits. The devout spend hours in the cemetery, and there is a lively sense of the communion of saints, the living and the dead. —Rev. James Field, Copyright © J. S. Paluch Co.

    World Mission Sunday, Thank you for all your efforts regarding World Mission Sunday. We realize in the Mission Office that much is demanded of your time, talent and treasure in the Fall. Thank you for the confidence that, by God’s grace, all this can be accomplished and more.

    The Consequences of Being Wrong! Any reasonable person considers the possibility that he (or she) could be wrong regarding any important position they take. If the pro-life movement is wrong, then we are guilty of trying to deny women a so-called right to privacy (which has never been part of our Constitution). But, if the pro-abortion side is wrong, then they are indisputably and directly responsible for the slaughter and mass murder of millions of innocent children----three and a half thousand a day in the United States. So, the question is, would it be better to be pro-life and wrong, or pro-choice and wrong? The answer is very clear!

    HELP NEEDED - to care for an elderly lady. Duties include light house keeping, distributing meds, making meals. Please call Lou at (715) 848-4177 for application.
