Next Sunday, Nov. 1 at the 10 AM Mass, St. Michael the Archangel Parish will remember, in a special way, all the people who were either buried in St. Michael Cemetery or had a memorial service here from Nov. 1, 2019 - October 31, 2020.  A candle will be lit in memory of each individual.  After Mass a family member will be able to take the candle home as a remembrance.  Family members of those who died during this period are invited to come to Mass.

Changes for the St. Charles/St. Michael Mass schedule for weekends.  Beginning November 1, Sunday morning Masses will be at 8 AM at St. Charles and 10 AM at St. Michael.  Saturday evening Mass will be at St. Charles during the month of November, and return to St. Michael in December thru March.  This is the schedule that had been in effect before the COVID-19 pandemic.  St. Charles will stream their 8 AM Sunday Mass live on Facebook, with the bulletin and announcements beginning at around 7:40 AM.  Reservations will still be required at all Masses using the SignUpGenius page.  It will be updated to show the available slots for each Mass and we suggest making a reservation for the Mass you wish to attend.  Stay tuned here and in the church bulletins for more information.

                                                          Thirtieth Sunday  in Ordinary Time -  October 25, 2020

Love God, Neighbor, Self.  There are 613 Old Testament laws guiding faithful behavior.  The Exodus writer tells us some:  do not molest or oppress aliens, do not wrong widows and orphans, do not extort money from the poor, do not, do not. do  not.  Jesus gives us a summary in two laws (rooted in Deuteronomy 6:5 and Leviticus 19:18):  1) Love God with everything you have and are and 2) Love the neighbor as your very self.

The Catholic Service and Ministry Appeal Needs You!   A most heartfelt thanks to all those who have responded with a gift to The 2020 Catholic Service and Ministry Appeal;  we are truly grateful.  If you have not already done so, there's still plenty of time...one-time donations or pledges - in any amount- are needed.  Donations can be made through your parish or online at www.diobelle.org.  Please consider making your gift today or at any time in the coming months.  Thank you and may God bless you for your generosity.

Veterans' Day Mass:  The Catholic Daughters of the Americas Our Lady of Lourdes #1790 will be having a Mass said to honor our veterans on November 8th at the 8 AM Mass at St. Charles Borromeo Church.  We invite all veterans from both St. Charles Borromeo and St. Michael the Archangel parishes to attend Mass that morning.  Unfortunately due to the current Covid-19 restrictions we will NOT be having our usual procession into church or offering coffee and donuts after Mass.  We do hope you will still be able to attend Mass to continue, in our small way, the honoring of the veterans from our parishes.  Thank you.   Paula Szczepanski

Next weekend, raffle tickets will be available for purchase on a quilt sponsored by the Washington County Right to LIfe organization.
