All Souls Shrine

MAY THE SOULS OF ALL THE FAITHFUL DEPARTED, THROUGH THE MERCY OF GOD, REST IN PEACE.  AMEN.

 

Dedicated to the commemoration of the faithful departed, the month of November is marked by special remembrance of all those who have passed in the parish since last All Souls' Day.  Guided by the Bereavement Ministry and the Music Ministry many gathered on the Feast of All Souls (Nov. 2) to remember our loved ones who have passed.  They created our All Souls Shrine to offer to the parish a way to be in companionship with the faithful departed throughout the month, praying for them and benefiting from their prayers for us: a witness to the "communion of saints".

 

On the same day, the St. Francis of Assisi Memorial Garden Committee took one more step in their efforts to improve and develop our Memorial Garden.  The new grave markers were placed, establishing the new practice of marking each interment with its own granite head stone.

National Life Chain

Life Chain 2017 was amazing!  The rains held off for us...until later after 5 p.m. when it seemed that a deluge came upon CB.  Sandi Adams was terrific in all her planning and prep.  We were very blessed with her dedication to this...and her good spirit.  She was so joyful all the way...not ever a discouraging word. And why shouldn't all our folks engaged in ministry look and sound like that?!? 

There were 54 participants.  It's a great spot for something like this...A1A...traffic light...Sunday.  Even the pastor of Cape Canaveral Lutheran Church joined us.  And, a fair turn out of our youth.  The youth kept everyone with water.

I love the photo: the oldest and the youngest person on the witness line - sort of makes it clear that no one gets a "Pass" on witnessing.  There was Kevin Anderson...the first to hit the pavement...with a great backdrop photo of "Cheaters" behind him.
