Plan to stay this Sunday (November 2) after Mass for camaraderie and refreshments. Coffee, lemonade, and doughnuts will be provided. Anyone with additional snack items is invited to leave them in the kitchen downstairs before Mass.



Saturday, November 1 is the Solemnity of All Saints. The U.S. bishops have determined that, because All Saints Day falls on a Saturday this year, it is not a holy day of obligation.


Traditionally, All Souls Day is celebrated the day following All Saints Day. But this year, All Souls Day (the commemoration of all the faithful departed) is Sunday, November 2 on the ordinary form calendar but Monday, November 3 on the extraordinary form calendar.


Explanation: On the EF calendar, All Souls Day is transferred to the following Monday whenever November 2 falls on a Sunday, in which case the Mass of that Sunday is celebrated instead of the Mass of All Souls. So this year, All Souls Day is Monday, November 3 in the EF.

Whereas on the OF calendar, All Souls Day is never transferred and remains on a Sunday. So this year All Souls Day is celebrated on Sunday, November 2 in the OF. So this coming Sunday one might see violet or black vestments at an OF Mass, but would see green vestments at an EF Mass.


PHOTOS OF THE WEEK: TLM in St. Peter’s Basilica for Traditional Pilgrimage

Click here for extraordinarily beautiful photos of the principal Solemn Pontifical Mass for last week’s annual Summorum Pontificum pilgrimage to Rome, celebrated in the extraordinary form by Card. Raymond Burke, Prefect of the Holy See’s Apostolic Signatura (supreme court), at the Altar of the Chair in St. Peter’s, the Basilica’s principal altar other than the high altar traditionally reserved for celebrations by the pope himself.

DON'T FORGET . . . . .

To keep your tax-deductible Knoxville Latin Mass Community support between your parish and diocesan contributions and your tax payment.  To provide for Community expenses in support of Latin liturgy (which typically average as much as a few hundred dollars weekly)--for music, surplices and cassocks for altar servers, and liturgical supplies and equipment, and to maintain a reserve fund for special purchases ranging from missals to candlesticks and vestments--please use the special addressed Knoxville Latin Mass Community envelopes that can be handed in, mailed in (address here), or left on the missalette tables after Mass (but should be kept separate from and in addition to the regular parish and diocesan offertory envelopes). For additional details, see the " Make a Contribution" page at our community web site:


Just send your name and e-mail address to  h DOT edwards AT mindspring DOT com, or write them on a Knox Latin Mass Community envelope and leave it on a missalette table after Mass. The e-mail version has live internet links, and sometimes additional content that doesn't fit in the printed version.
