DATE                   TOPIC

November 5th    — Do Catholics worship Mary?

November 12th   — Purgatory and Prayers for the Dead 


As we observe the day of Commemoration of the Faithful Departed (All Souls Day) on November 2nd each year, the church community of St. Anthony of Padua Catholic Church in Bayou Black honors all of those who have died during the year with a special mass. During the Saturday Vigil Mass on the weekend closest to November 2nd we set up a Memorial Wreath in our Sanctuary where the names of the deceased are written on ribbons (yellow for those who have died during the current year and white for others) are pinned, and remembered at our Masses during the whole month of November. Our Commemoration of All the Faithful Departed will be held this year at the 4 PM Vigil Mass on Saturday, October 28, 2017. There will be a second collection for All Soul’s Day (November 2nd) at the weekend masses.

Also, please note that the Annual Blessing of the Tombs at Bayou Black Cemetery will be held on Sunday, October 29, 2017 at 9:15 AM.
