Please write your contact info on the back and retrieve your photos by November 8 at 6:30pm.
Day of the Dead History:
"Day of the Dead or Dia de los Muertos is a series of commemorative days dedicated to those who have died. It is celebrated generally between Halloween, Oct. 31 through Nov. 2, and coincides with the Catholic holy days of All Saints (Nov. 1) and All Souls (Nov. 2).
Day of the Dead is actually divided into two distinct holidays, the first being Dide los Inocentes, which is dedicated to children on Nov. 1, and Dide los Muertos on Nov. 2, which is the actual Day of the Dead. Both days taken together are collectively referred to as the Day of the Dead, and celebrations can begin as early as Halloween (Oct. 31)..." - Catholic.org

An Introduction to Catholic Social Teaching
with Fr. Justin Gable, O.P. Fr. Michael Hurley, O.P.
A look at the social teaching of the Catholic Church, beginning with Pope Leo XIII and his landmark encyclical Rerum Novarum in a historical and theological context. We will see how the themes and concerns of Rerum Novarum are developed by his successors Benedict XV, Pius XI, Pius XII, and John XXIII. Among the themes of Catholic Social Teaching we will be exploring are human dignity, the common good, justice, peace, the preferential option for the poor, and the universal call to holiness and virtue.

The Healthcare Professionals Mass, also known as the ‘White Mass’ has been a tradition in the United States since the late 1800s. The White Mass was originally named for the white lab coats worn by many in the healthcare profession. Healthcare workers bring God’s love and care to every person they meet seeking to heal the body and spirit.
This special Mass honors our dedicated Healthcare Professionals as they continue the healing ministry of Jesus Christ. All those involved in the healthcare field including: physicians, nurses, chaplains, physical therapists, mental health caregivers, chiropractors, receptionists, administration, dietary staff, lab workers and all who work to keep our community healthy will be honored.
All healthcare professionals receive a special blessing from our celebrant, Archbishop José H. Gomez during this Mass.
Most Reverend José H. Gomez, Archbishop of Los Angeles cordially invites you to attend:
