A Few Words from Fr. Gregory:

There is a crispness in the air that is the unmistakable sign that we are coming into the autumn season. I am enjoying that refreshing feeling that seems to go along with the beautiful fall colors and the sights and smells that accompany the fall harvests. It is such a great time to get out for a nice walk - not too hot or too cold.  The colors of the trees are magnificent, God and nature in perfect harmony!   I think that the pure delight of a joyful stroll in the fall in one of the finest gifts we receive in this life. Join me and the Salvatorian family in thanking Our Savior for this real simple pleasure. You know we can also reinforce that special feeling of joyfulness through prayer, so why not pray together during these fall months?

Also in November we remember Our Savior's Mother with a Novena in honoring the Presentation of the Blessed Virgin that begins November 21. Help us to celebrate Mary's dedication of herself to God, beginning in her childhood as she received the inspiration of the Holy Spirit who filled her with grace. She really did prepare herself to be our Blessed Savior's Mother from a very young age. Join the Salvatorian Family as we celebrate the Novena of Masses from November 21 to November 29, and begin to prepare to welcome the birth of our Savior!  Send me your intentions by mail, online or by calling 1-800-254-4902, so that together we honor our Heavenly Mother's dedication to God and ask for her intercession that we and our loved ones be filled with the grace of the Holy Spirit.
