Special Events and Dates: 

           October: Month of the Most Holy Rosary
Each year the month of October is dedicated to the Most Holy Rosary. This is primarily due to the liturgical feast of Our Lady of the Rosary being celebrated on October 7th. It was instituted to honor the Blessed Virgin Mary in gratitude for the protection that she gives the Church in answer to the praying of the Rosary by the faithful.

Oct 18 World Mission Sunday Friday
Oct 18th is World Mission Sunday. The Pope began his call to mission message recalling the words he expressed on the occasion of the extraordinary moment of prayer on 27 March. Even in the disorientation and fear provoked by the current international crisis, Pope Francis says the Lord continues to ask “Whom shall I send?”

Behold, the eyes of the Lord are on those who fear him, who hope in his merciful love, to rescue their souls from death,
to keep them alive in famine.
