Mass of Remembrance 2017

Thursday November 2, 2017, we will hold our annual Mass of Remembrance.  At this Mass, which will be celebrated at 7:00 p.m. in the church, all of the people who were buried from Saint Charles Borromeo Parish from October 1, 2016 until September 30, 2017 will be remembered. Members of the family who are present will receive a rose as a memorial to their deceased loved one.  All of the names of the deceased will be proclaimed in a solemn fashion, as their loss will be remembered. 
The members of our parish who work so hard throughout the year without any recognition or acclaim, serving as Bereavement Ministers, Adult Altar Servers for Funerals, and the Resurrection Choir of the funerals will take part.  These are ministries of great service to our parish community, but until you suffer a loss you really aren’t aware of what they do and, at the time of loss, it is difficult, if not impossible, to appreciate their service.  This is the one time they receive a small dose of recognition, recognition that is richly deserved. 
All parishioners are invited to attend the Mass and there is a small social in the Fr. Haidet Social Hall after Mass to which all of the participants are invited.  Again, the date is Thursday, November 2, 2017 at 7:00 p.m. for our Mass of Remembrance.
