MASS TO CELEBRATE THE FEAST OF ALL SAINTS, Wednesday, Nov. 1 – Mass Dress Enforced
Saint John of the Cross compared the soul to a pane of glass. When it is facing away from the light, its smudges and imperfections are barely noticeable, but when it is directed at the light, every mark, even the smallest, becomes visible. We honor the saints because they directed their lives, souls toward the light of the Gospel in very real ways. This explains the paradox that those we call saints are most keenly aware of their sins, even to the point of describing themselves as the worst of sinners. This is a truly saintly psychology. One St. Ignatius knew well for, indeed, in his Spiritual Exercises, the loved sinner stands at the center of the first week. We look forward to turning towards the light, worshipping with you and all the saints of God.
The Turkey Drive! starts tomorrow. From November 1 through November 21, we’ll ask that you give dollars and cents each day in 6th period in a healthy competition to raise as much money as we can for local and global charities. Top 3 classes with highest per student giving average win the best trophies ever!! Last year’s Turkey Drive winners, Mr. Leyba, Mr. Klein, and Mr. Orem need a challenge!

Brophy Theatre Program Announces Play Schedule: Brophy’s play season opens next month with a production of The Outsiders. The play is based on the novel of the same name by S.E. Hinton which also became a classic film. The Outsiders tells the story of class conflict between the “Greasers,” youths from a poor neighborhood, and the “Socs” (short for Socials), a group of privileged kids from the wealthy west side of town. When published in 1967, the novel broke new ground in the young adult fiction genre with its portrayal of violence, class conflict, and prejudice. Directed by Maureen Watson; performances will be in Brophy’s Black Box Theatre.:
