All Saints Day on Nov. 1st is a Holy Day. We will have Holy Day Masses on Wednesday at 6:00 PM and Thursday at 8:00 AM and 6:00 PM. The Halloween Parade that includes all the children in their costumes will take place before that Wednesday Vigil Mass on Oct. 31st. We moved our regular Wednesday evening Mass to 6:00 PM, immediately following the Andover Safe Halloween which is from 4-6 PM. St. Vincent will once again be a host site for Andover Safe Halloween where business can gather from all over Andover to hand out treats. Come join us either on Halloween or All Saints Day on November 1st. All Saints Day is the real reason for Halloween as it was originally known as All Hallows (“holy ones”) Eve.
All Saints Day reminds us of the many saints that guide us by the example of their lives and the wisdom of their teaching. You can be inspired by the Saints in a special way at our next LIFE Event on Sunday, Nov. 4th (children welcome) and Wednesday Nov. 7th (adults only).
Safe Halloween in Andover is sponsored by the Andover Chamber of Commerce. Business in the area give out treats from 4-6 PM on Halloween. St. Vincent’s is the site for business from far and wide to come and give out treats. Come join us and then go to the All Saints Day Vigil Mass afterwards at 6 PM. The Halloween Parade including all the children in their costumes will take place at that Mass.
Early Voting for Butler county residents will be at St. Vincent’s in Room 1A this Tuesday-Friday from 12:00 noon to 7:00 PM and Saturday from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM.
Enjoy the beauty of the fall colors. We only need to look up to receive a glorious gift from God. Our delight is the best way to say thank you to God.
