Mass of Remembrance & World Day of the Poor

Mission Santa Barbara in Santa Barbara

SANTA BARBARA – On Sunday, 13 November 2022, the parish of Mission Santa Barbara, 2201 Laguna Street, will be celebrating a special Mass of Remembrance at 9am for all those whose lives we honored and celebrated at funerals, memorial services and burials at the parish during the past liturgical year.

This Sunday is also the sixth World Day of the Poor, initiated by Pope Francis in 2017 with the theme “let us love, not with words but with deeds”.

“Christians are called to follow the example of Jesus in loving God and neighbor, especially the most vulnerable. On this day we are invited to offer friendship, solidarity and welcome to the poorest of our sisters and brothers. As we reach out with love and support, let us hold all members of our global family in our prayers”.
