THE HEALTH AND WELLNESS MINISTRY will do Blood Pressure Screenings this Sunday October 26th after every Mass. Why not start having your blood
pressure checked to ensure that you will enjoy a Happy and Healthy Holiday Season? We have an excellent collection of religious books in our library for you
to read. When you have your blood pressure checked, you could look at the collection to find a book or two of interest to read during the fall and winter
months. Just sign the card in the back of the book and put it in the box. You can return them when you finish.
MASS OF REMEMBRANCE: The 4:00 PM Mass next Saturday, November 1st will be our Annual Mass of Remembrance celebrating the lives of those
Parishioners who died this past year. Light refreshments will be served after Mass in the Parish Center.
JUST A REMINDER: Daylight Savings Time ends on the first Sunday of November. On Saturday, November 1st at 2:00 AM we "Fall back" by setting our
clock back one hour. Therefore at 2:00 AM on Sunday morning November 2nd the time becomes 1:00 AM. You will have an extra hour to sleep. Remember
to change your clock so that you will be on time for Mass!
ALL SAINTS DAY: Saturday, November 1st is All Saints Day and this year it falls on a Saturday so it is not a Holy Day of Obligation.
THE LEGION OF MARY invites all auxiliaries to a special Mass on Wednesday, November 5. The Rosary will be said in church at 11:30, Mass at 12:00 and
the luncheon will follow Mass. If you haven't already done so, please make a reservation today! Please call Fran Klosterman at 385-1265 or Mary LeSaint at
MONTH OF THE ROSARY: During the month of October, we will be making rosaries available to encourage parishioners to pray the rosary. We will also have

ALL SOULS DAY MASSES: Starting next week a Mass will be said once a week during the month of
November for all of our deceased relatives and friends that have been enrolled in the All Souls Day Memorial at St. Boniface.
ST. BONIFACE SPIRITUAL BOOK CLUB will meet in the Parish Center on Sunday, Nov. 16, after noon Mass to discuss "Accidental Theologians: Four
Women Who Shaped Christianity," by Elizabeth A. Dreyer, Professor emerita of religious studies at Fairfield University in Connecticut. Dreyer will join us via
phone for the discussion of the four women Doctors of the Church: Hildegard of Bingen, Catherine of Siena, Teresa of Avila, and Therese of Lisieux. In her
book Dreyer examines the history-making effect and unique theologies of each woman and how these women have enhanced our understanding of the cross,
the incarnation, the Holy Spirit, and the human person. Books are available in the parish center for $13.00. For more information, contact Lisa Biedenbach,
firstname.lastname@example.org or 892-3417.
CHOIR: Our 10:00 a.m. Mass choir invites you to join them as a way to participate in our Sunday worship. Your doing so will not only enhance the
celebration but will also allow you to share your talents. As Father Joe mentioned a couple of weeks ago, stewardship is more than financial giving; it is giving
of ourselves as well. We are especially in need of men's voices, in particular a bass or baritone, but all voices are welcome. Don't worry if your voice is
"insufficient," "weak," or you can't read music. Over time voices develop naturally with some regular, weekly practice and singing. So please consider joining
us on Wednesday evenings at 7:30 for practice and at 10:00 a.m. on Sundays. You will have fun, make new friends, and develop a whole new way of
worshipping at Mass. Call Don Auberger, 703-0922, with questions or details.
Our 10:00 a.m. Mass choir is on a one week "fall break" today and will return to the loft next Sunday.
