Trunk or Treat 2016
Join in the Halloween Fun!!
St. T’s Annual Trunk or Treat/Chili Cook-off event will take place following the 4:00pm Mass on Saturday, October 29.
During the month of November, we remember all those who have died and gone before us marked with the sign of faith.
We celebrate All Saints Day, (Mass on October 31 at 7:00pm, November 1 at 8:00am and 7:00pm) All Souls Day, and we celebrate our annual Mass of Remembrance which will be on Saturday, November 5, 2016 at 9:30am.
We would like to offer a special remembrance to all those who have died, especially within the last year. At the entrance of the church we will have a table remembering all those who have died.
We are asking community members to bring in a framed 5X7 or smaller picture with the name of their loved one on it. Please make sure to put your name on the back to make returning easier.
Our Easter candle will remind us during the masses that for them life has changed, not ended, and that they always remain in our prayers. We will begin accepting pictures November 5-6. Let us not only pray for those who have died, but let us pray for all those who are mourning the passing of their loved one. May the comfort of the Lord embrace and behold them.
Forming Consciences for Faithful Citizenship
In Forming Consciences for Faithful Citizenship, the Catholic Bishops of the United States Conscience remind us:
“The Church equips its members to address political and social questions by helping them to develop a well-formed conscience. …Conscience is not something that allows us to justify doing whatever we want, nor is it a mere "feeling" about what we should or should not do. Rather, conscience is the voice of God resounding in the human heart, revealing the truth to us and calling us to do what is good while shunning what is evil.”
