Good Tidings October 26-November 1

Good Tidings: October 26th - November 1st, 2020
Announcements
High Mass for the Solemnity of All Saints
Sunday, November 1st
We will be having a High Mass on Sunday, November 1st @ 2pm to celebrate the Feast of All Saints.  This is a beautiful Mass with rich tradition and will run a little longer than a normal Mass. The 9:30am Mass will be canceled to allow for this special celebration.
The Book of the Names of the Dead
The Book of the Names of the Dead was inspired by the ancient practice of recording the dates of the deaths of loved ones in a necrology, a public record or registry of death. This practice provides the living with an opportunity for healing and consolation in the face of grief. 
The Book of the Names of the Dead will be displayed outside our chapel from the solemnity of All Saints until the beginning of Advent. It is left open for people to write the names of their deceased loved ones and for others to read the names, remember, and pray for the repose of their souls. Remembering all of these men and women who have gone before us, “marked with the sign of faith,” helps us better understand and appreciate our faith in Christ, our risen Lord, who conquered sin and death and brings new life to all. We encourage everyone to write in the book, especially those who have lost friends and family to COVID during the past year.

Pilgrimage 
To Purification Church and Locust Grove Cemetery
Throughout Church history, Catholics have gone on pilgrimage, walking to a specific holy site to ask for help, pray for others, discern where God is leading them, to give thanks for the gifts of their lives, or be reminded that all of life is pilgrimage.
To our community, we are proposing this pilgrimage to the cemetery of Locust Grove, which is the oldest Catholic Church and Cemetery in Georgia. We suggest going as a group, and using the booklet below as a guide.

Outreach 
40 Days for Life

Each semester we take part in 40 Days for Life here in Atlanta.
Through our calm and prayerful presence, we hope to send a powerful message to the community about the injustice of abortion. We act as a reminder for those entering the facility of another way and can be an indication towards repentance for the facility staff and/or unnecessarily belligerent patronizers.

We are always looking for drivers and passengers to go in the morning for a brief vigil.  Sign up at gtcc.co/40Days4Life.
