St Robert Parish
All Souls Day Remembrance Mass
Tuesday, November 2, 2021
St Robert Church
2200 East Capitol Drive
Please Note: In the past the All Souls Day Mass of Remembrance at St. Robert has been celebrated on the weekend closest to November 2nd, instead of celebrating on All Souls Day itself. This year, and in the future, the All Souls Day Mass will be celebrated on November 2nd, regardless of what day of the week it falls on. This year, All Souls Day falls on a Tuesday. Our Mass will begin at 7:00pm with Hospitality to follow. Thank you for your understanding!
Sincerely Yours in Christ,
The St Robert Bereavement Committee
St. Robert is teaming up with area parishes to increase Adoration hours. Come stop by and adore Our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament at the Frassati Chapel, 3001 N. Downer Ave. Currently we have Adoration hours from Monday 3pm – Wednesday 9am at the Newman Center, 3001 E Downer Ave.
Please use frassati.weadorehim.com to sign up for hours, change your commitment, request a sub, and see who has the hour following yours. Please try to find a sub if you need one, and if you can sub, please check your account at frassati.weadorehim.com to claim hours. Ideally we’d like to have at least 2 people every hour, definitely during the night, so please sign up even if there is someone already committed to that hour. There is no such thing as having a full hour or too many committed to it!
HOMILIES NOW LINKED ON THE WEBSITE
We are shifting from recording full Masses, to recording the Homilies. In addition to posting the video clips on our Facebook and YouTube pages, we’ll be posting a link on this website. This week, we are linking to the recording of Fr. Enrique’s Pastoral Installation Mass on October 17.
