Karlo Broussard will present “Shining
Light on the Transcendence of Man” on
Thursday, November 6, at 6:30 p.m., in
the social hall. Questions answered: Is
man mere matter?
Or Does man
transcend matter with that which we
refer to as an immaterial soul? He will
show how the evidence from philosophy
and scientific research with near death
experiences leads to the reasonable
conclusion that man does in fact possess
a transphyical or transmaterial soul and
thus is made for eternity.
During the month of November we
remember especially those who are
deceased. A Remembrance Table
will be at the back of the church for
you to share pictures of your loved
ones. Please write your name and
phone number on the back. There
will also be a Remembrance Book
for you to record names in. All Souls
envelopes will be available. After
writing in name(s), please put in
donation basket, or give to office.
Envelopes will be placed on the
Altar and remembered during all
Masses. On Sunday, November 2,
Fr. Tomás will bless the graves at
Holy Cross Cemetery at 1:00 p.m.
