FR DAVID WRITES: MONTH OF THE HOLY SOULS
November is the month of the Holy Souls. It began in splendid style with the feast of All Saints on Friday. All Souls’ Day was yesterday (Saturday) when the church prays for all the faithful departed. Throughout this month we continue to pray for those who have died, especially our loved ones and those we have known. Significant dates are as follows, in date order:

Thursday 7 November at 5.30pm in Westminster Cathedral—the Diocesan Mass for the Deceased Clergy, celebrated by Cardinal Nichols with the bishops and priests.
Friday 8 November at 7.30pm our own special Requiem Mass here at Our Lady of Lourdes for the deceased members of our parish, families and friends.
Sunday 10 November, 9.45am here—our Remembrance Sunday Mass for those who died in war, including the Church Parade of our uniformed groups.
Tuesday 12 November, 12.30pm—Deanery Mass for Deceased Members of the Enfield Deanery, celebrated in Our Lady of Mount Carmel & St George Church, Enfield Town by Fr David, Fr Andrew and the deanery priests. Everyone is welcome at all of these special celebrations.

'THE SUMMIT' YOUTH EVENT
This Friday, 22nd November, we have a special event for young people (teenagers) of our Deanery at St Monica's Parish, Palmers Green, 7—9pm. Some have already approached Fr David to say they will be coming along. Please do speak to Fr David or Fr Andrew this weekend if you would like to join us. The event begins in the large hall at St Monica's and includes input, social time, food and other refreshments. There will also be some praise and worship in the church and a time of prayer and adoration. Young people are asked to either make their own way there and back, or else be dropped off/picked up by their parents.  More information from the priests.
