News & Events for November

Please join us for these upcoming activities and events in November.

All Saints Day Masses, November 1st at 7 am, 8:30 am and 7 pm.  This is a Holy Day of Obligation

All Souls  Mass, November 2nd at 7pm. This special liturgy will be an opportunity for all those who have lost a loved one this year to honor and celebrate those lives with the MPB community. You are invited to bring a picture of your loved one with you.

Meditation and Movement, Classes will be Nov. 7, 21, 28, Dec. 5 and 12 from 5:30-6:30pm in the Parish Center.

The theme is:  The Joyful Mysteries. These mysteries are marked by the joy radiating from the event of the Incarnation (3rd mystery, the Nativity). This is clear from the very first mystery, the Annunciation, where Gabriel’s greeting to the Virgin of Nazareth is linked to an invitation to messianic joy: “Rejoice, Mary.” The whole of salvation…had led up to this greeting.

September 23rd & 24th Happy Feet Shoe and Sock Drive

The Society of St Vincent de Paul is collecting new socks and gently used men’s, women’s and children’s shoes the weekend of September 23 and 24. This year your donations will go to two homeless shelters, a homeless drop-in center and a community-based clothing bank: Samaritan House Homeless Shelter, Denver Rescue Mission, Father Woody’s Haven of Hope and Integrated Family Community Services. While the need for men’s work and tennis shoes remains a high priority, the greatest need this year for all of these agencies is new socks for men, women and children. So, if you don’t have shoes to recycle, new socks, all sizes, would be greatly appreciated. Collection bins will be curbside before and after the Saturday and Sunday morning Masses on September 23 & 24. Happy feet have shoes and socks.
