FROM OUR EDITORS—Sunday, October 29 – 30th Sunday in Ordinary Time


As we come to the end of October, many of our students may be getting excited about Halloween. More than costumes and candy happens this year on October 31. This date is also the 500th Anniversary of the Protestant Reformation (see separate post). As we move into November, we find it full of important observances: Black Catholic History Month, Native American Heritage Month, All Saints’ Day (11/1), All Souls’ Day (11/2), and National Vocation Awareness Week (11/5–11/11). In the U.S., Thanksgiving is celebrated on 11/23. While this isn’t a religious holiday, it can serve as a reminder to all of us—wherever we live—to offer God our thanks every day. After all, our celebration of the Eucharist (Greek for “thanksgiving”) is a celebration of gratitude all through the year.
