ALL SOULS DAY NOVENA OF MASSES
On All Souls Day we not only remember the dead but we apply our efforts, through prayer, almsgiving, and the Mass, to their release from Purgatory. There are two indulgences attached to All Souls Day, one for visiting a church and another for visiting a cemetery. While the actions are performed by the living, the merits of the indulgences are applicable only to the souls in Purgatory.
Praying for the dead is a Christian obligation. In the modern world when many have come to doubt the Church’s teaching on Purgatory, the need for such prayers have only increased. The Church devotes the month of November to prayer for the Holy Souls in Purgatory, and participation in the Mass of All Souls Day is a good way to begin the month.
Novena of Masses at St. Elizabeth
The Church invites us to remember our beloved dead in prayer, especially the highest prayer of the church, The Holy Mass. Please fill your offering envelope to have your beloved dead remember in nine days of masses here at St. Elizabeth, as well as their names will be placed at our altar each day of the month of November. Please turn in your envelopes as soon as possible.

UD Ministry Conference
Although the name may be deceiving, the University of Dallas Ministry Conference is not just for those who do professional or volunteer ministry, such as priests, religious, catechists, teachers, diocesan workers, etc. Instead, UDMC offers something for every Catholic who wants to become more knowledgeable in their faith and the teachings of the Catholic Church. The Conference will be held at the Kay Baily Hutchinson Convention Center in Dallas this year October 22-24, 2015. For more information go to http://www.udallas.edu/udmc
A big thanks is extended to TORRES GLASS who graciously donated the beautiful new glass doors and windows going out of the breezeway between the rectory and the church. They also would love to finish the front doors of the breezeway but need assistance from another donor to help. With the costs.
Please call Gail if you would like to help with this project at 214-331-4328 ext 222
