Oct. 18 -- Holy Mass for the Feast of St. Luke
St. Alban's is celebrating the Feast of St. Luke the Evangelist on Oct. 18., Wed. at 7 p.m. with Mass according to the Missal of Divine Worship. Father Simington will also hear confessions beforehand from 6:15 p.m. to 6:45 p.m. 
Nov. 1 -- Solemn Mass for All Saints Day: A Holy Day of Obligation
St. Alban's is celebrating All Saints Day on Nov. 1 at 7 p.m. with a Solemn Mass [Mass celebrated by the priest, assisted by a deacon, and instituted acolyte as subdeacon] according to our English-Catholic missal, Divine Worship. This is an opportunity to see the splendor of the Ordinariate form of the Roman Rite, which is one of the three forms of the Roman rite in the Catholic Church, along with the Ordinary form and the Extraordinary form. 

Confession will be available before Mass from 6:15 to 6:45 p.m. 

Nov. 2 -- All Souls Day Mass and Evening Office of the Dead
On All Souls Day, St. Alban's is having Mass offered for the souls of the faithful departed at 7 p.m. 

We are also praying the ancient tradition of the Evening Office of the Dead, according to the Ordinariate's Daily Office, starting at 6:15 p.m. Acolyte Peter Smith will lead the recitation of the Office, while Father Simington will hear Confessions from 6:15 p.m. to 6:45 p.m. 

If you would like your loved ones (family members, relatives, friends, etc.) remembered in the Mass and Vespers, please send an email to stalbanpray4us@gmail.com. We are writing their names down in our book of remembrance, and each person will be remembered by name ("thy servant ... / thy handmaid ...") during the Office of the Dead. 

We hope you will be able to join us for both these liturgies as we pray with the Church universal for our brothers and sisters who have fallen asleep in Christ with the promise of the resurrection and everlasting life.
