ST MARTIN OF TOURS
As we prepare for our Patron Saint’s Feast Day, please join us in prayer for our Novena beginning;
Monday, November 3rd after each Mass thru to Tuesday, November 11th.

PRAYER TO ST. MARTIN OF TOURS
Blessed Saint Martin, You were born under pagan ways but since your childhood you were chosen to be a Prince of the Church and, as Bishop of Tours, many souls were redeemed and liberated from the satanic forces through your prayers, austerities and blessings.
We humbly ask for your intercession before Our Lord Jesus because we want to be worthy of the grace and mercy of the Holy Spirit that lead us from darkness to light into the eternal kingdom, forever and ever. Amen

St. Martin of Tours,
Pray for us


 We will celebrate our Patron Saint’s Feast Day with a special Mass on
 Tuesday, November 11 at 7:30 pm.
All Souls

Happy Thanksgiving!

Let us give thanks to God our Father for all His gifts He bestowed upon us this year.  One of the joys of being a Christian is that we know whom to thank for our many blessings.  Let us take some sacred time this weekend to remember the ways in which God has blessed us.  And then thank God by reaching out to those who have less than we have!  Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!  May we never cease to praise and thank God for all the good things in our lives.  Below is a simple Meal Prayer which I encourage all of us to pray at our Thanksgiving Dinner!  Blessings!
