Líbralo, oh Señor, del camino del pecado y de la muerte.
Abre su corazón a tu gracia y verdad.
Llénalo con tu santo Espíritu vivificador.
Consérvalo en la fe y comunión de tu santa Iglesia.
Enséñale a amar a los demás en el poder del Espíritu.
Envíale al mundo como testigo de tu amor.
Llévalo a la plenitud de tu paz y de tu gloria.

Señor, atiende nuestra súplica.

Démosle la bienvenida a el que ha sido bautizado: Jacobo Nicolás.

Tonight, Día de los Muertos, we pray and spend time with the generations that came before us. Eternal rest, grant unto them, O Lord. And let light perpetual shine upon them. Amen.

Esta noche, Día de los Muertos, rezamos y pasamos tiempo con las generaciones que nos precedieron. Dales, Señor, el descanso eterno. Y brille para ellos la luz perpetua. Amén.

All Saints’ Day
Dios todopoderoso que has entrelazado a tus elegidos en la comunión y solidaridad del místico cuerpo de tu Hijo Jesucristo nuestro Señor, concédenos la gracia de seguir a tus benditos santos en su virtuosa y santa vida para que lleguemos a las alegrías inefables que has reservado a los que te aman de verdad; por Jesucristo nuestro Señor, que vive y reina contigo el Espíritu Santo, un solo Dios, por los siglos de los siglos. Amén.

Día de los Muertos TOMORROW and Last Chance for the RAFFLE! - https://mailchi.mp/157c24e25560/dia-de-los-muertos-and-raffle

Not sure what to do with all the candy your kids collect this evening? On Sunday, kids can bring 10% of their collected candy to Worship as a candy tithe. All the candy offerings will be used as treats for our Christmas float during the Leesburg Parade this December. Worship services are at 10:00am and 3:00pm. A wonderful opportunity to worship, and offer a tangible tithe experience for kids.

Amén amen

Everyone loves a winner, but we cheered on the Washington Nationals for the unity they brought to this city, for the grace they brought to the challenge, for their resilience in adversity and for reminding everyone that there are ways to come together, regardless of the labels we claim or the uniforms we wear.

Our friends at Christ Church Cathedral, Houston reminded us how to disagree without being disagreeable, and how we can build bonds of affection across difference and distance.

We don't give thanks for winning a ball game; we give thanks for the remarkable joy this team has brought to a city in desperate need of something to celebrate.

Reminder that today is National Drug Take Back Day. Here are the locations from 10:00am-2:00pm.

The Opioid Task Force, a joint ministry of St. Gabriel’s ~ San Gabriels and St. David's Episcopal Church and School, wanted to share the upcoming DEA drug take back day in Loudoun County. Do you have prescription medication in your medicine cabinet that you no longer need? Folks often ask us the best way to get rid of the medicine. This is a safe way to dispose of those medications. We have heard from folks who suffer with substance use disorder and for some it began when they came across, and tried, unused and unnoticed prescription meds in a family or friend’s medicine cabinet.

Be safe and Take Back. Please say a prayer for those who are struggling with addiction, and for those who love someone who is suffering with substance use disorder. Please share with your LoCo neighbors.

Diakonia: Interview with Bishop Curry – Episcopal Cafe

Did you know Deacon Holly is a vocational (permanent) deacon? Sometimes she gets asked when she will be ordained - she is ordained. Sometimes she gets asked when will she become a priest - she won’t. The Episcopal Church has begun a weekly written series on the diaconate. Here is week 2, an interview with Presiding Bishop Michael Curry.

“The deacon is at the intersection of world and church, if you will. Which is why the deacon reads the Gospel. I mean it’s not because it’s an honorific position. The deacon is reading the Gospel because it is the teachings and the life and the spirit of Jesus, who was God incarnate, who bridged Heaven and Earth. You see what I mean? Who is our bridge to church, our faith in the world. And so the deacon is that person, at the intersection. That’s a unique charism and calling for the deacon.” Presiding Bishop Michael B. Curry

" El diácono está en la intersección del mundo y la iglesia, si lo quieres. Es por eso que el diácono lee el Evangelio. Quiero decir que no es porque sea una posición de honor. El diácono está leyendo el Evangelio porque son las enseñanzas y la vida y el espíritu de Jesús, quien fue Dios encarnada, quien ha superado el cielo y la tierra. Ya ves a lo que me refiero? Quién es nuestro puente a la iglesia, nuestra fe en el mundo. Y así el diácono es esa persona, en la intersección. Eso es un carisma único y pedir al diácono." Presiding Bishop Michael B. Curry

Add your name: Bishops, stop promoting "recovery" from homosexuality

Please take a moment to tell bishops of the Roman Catholic Church to stop promoting conversion therapy for homosexuals. It is harmful, hateful, and more importantly it doesn't work. Help promote self love and dignity. Please love yourself today! Fr. Daniel

Por favor tome un momento para indicarle a los obispos Católicos Romanos que dejen de promover la terapia de conversión anti gay. Es dañino para el recipiente, promueve el odio y la baja autoestima y sobre todo no funciona. Ayúdenme a promover el que nos amemos a [email protected] [email protected] y a respetar la dignidad de todo ser humano. Padre Daniel
