Letters From Saint Ann Shrine

All Souls 2023

Dear Friends of Saint Ann Shrine,

November always starts off with a “triple bang, Halloween, All Saints Day, and All Souls Day. Halloween is a “big business” day for costume and candy stores as the young and adults alike enjoy the fantasy of looking like someone different than the person each one really is. It is a day of fun and friendship in anticipation of the following two days when we honor all the real heroes of our catholic faith who so faithfully served God in their lifetime and have become models for us to respect and imitate.

All Saints Day is “our” feast day also because we are each the son or daughter of God by baptism and are integral members of God’s Family as Adopted Children. For as many days as God deems fit to give us, we strive as best we can to imitate the life and values of Jesus as taught by our Church, and then God calls us home to be with Him forever in heaven.

The prayers and especially the celebration of the Eucharist on All Souls Day itself, as well as the many Masses people lovingly offer in memory of deceased loved ones, attest to the unity we feel between the living on earth and the deceased and their ultimate numbering among the Saints in heaven.

Here at Saint Ann Shrine, we will observe a Novena of Masses for the names you send in of family or friends you would like to be prayed for. These names will be placed before the statue of Saint Ann in her Chapel. Whatever donation you might be able to offer will be much appreciated toward the development of the mission of the Congregation of the Blessed Sacrament and the health needs of our aging religious. If you should want to have a Mass offered in memory of a loved one, please call our office at 440-449-2700 or visit our website at www.blessedsacrament.com/st-ann-shrine/.

In the Spirit of Good Saint Ann,

Blessings and Peace,

 

 

Father Roger Bourgeois, SSS

Chaplain
