Office of Catholic Schools Halloween Event at Quigley - Monday, October 31

We are excited to announce that on Monday, October 31, the Quigley Center will host students, faculty and staff from the Academy of St. Benedict the African for a fun day of activities, including a prayer service and Saint Scavenger Hunt/Trick-or-Treating. The Academy of St. Benedict the African is an Archdiocesan school located in West Englewood serving more than 190 students.

You are invited to participate in the event by attending the prayer service and/or participating in the Saint Scavenger Hunt/Trick-or-Treating. The prayer service will be held at 10:30 a.m. in the St. James Chapel, followed by the Saint Scavenger Hunt/Trick-or-Treating at 11:20 a.m. The Saint Scavenger Hunt/Trick-or-Treating will take place only on the 1st and 2nd floors. A timeline of the day's activities is noted below for your reference.

For those of you who wish to participate in the Saint Scavenger Hunt/Trick-or-Treating, we ask you to please bring 100 pieces of candy (no peanuts because of allergies) to pass out to students that day. All participating staff members will be given a photo of a Saint to post outside of your cubicle or office so students know who to visit during trick-or-treating. This activity will also provide students the opportunity to learn more about the Saints we will feature on the scavenger hunt. If you are not able to supply candy but would still like to participate in the Saint Scavenger Hunt/Trick-or-Treating activity, please contact Bob Rabe at rrabe@archchicago.org.

For those of you who would like to participate in the event, please complete this Google form by Wednesday, October 26: https://goo.gl/forms/o4RE5Uno4sDRT3ut2. Please note: although trick-or-treating will take place only on the 1st and 2nd floors, we invite all staff members from all floors to participate in the event.

If you have any questions regarding the event please contact Bob Rabe at rrabe@archchicago.org or ext. 8321.

All Saints Day

All Saints Day, Tuesday, 11/1, is a Holy Day of Obligation. Mass will be celebrated at its regular time, 11:30 a.m. We invite all employees to join us in prayer. 

Book of the Dead

The Book of the Dead is already placed in the sanctuary so that people can begin to add the names of their deceased, inviting us to pray for our beloved family and friends who have gone before us. We will pray for the names listed in the Book of the Dead at our Masses in November.

 Table for Pictures of our Deceased
As we have in the past, we will again make use of a table for pictures of our recently deceased.  This table will be located next to the ambo on the left side of the sanctuary.  On this round table, please place pictures of your loved ones who have died.  This table will be set up on Wednesday morning, November 2, by 10 a.m., in order to give you time to put your pictures on it. 
If you would like to sing with the chapel choir on All Saints Day, please contact Karen Gorajski in the Vicar General's Office by sending her an email: kgorajski@archchicago.org.
If you wish to sing with the choir during the All Souls Day Mass, please contact Sister Lovina Pammit by email: lpammit@archchicago.org
