Join us for our virtual halloween party, CC bring your own pumpkin (#CCBYOP), on October 30 from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. PST! We will be carving pumpkins and enjoying some cocktail/mocktails (recipes provided by our Graduate Committee). We will give prizes for the following themes: spookiest, religious, Disney themed, and USC pumpkins. Finally, if you have a costume, wear it! There will be a prize for the best costume.

RSVP online by October 27 as that is when we hope to order the pumpkin carving kits (while supplies last). Please bring your own pumpkin!

All Souls Day

All Souls’ Day is a day to remember our deceased loved ones and pray together as one church, worldwide. We will have one in-person outdoor Mass at 5:30 p.m. PDT in the USC Caruso Catholic Center courtyard. Additionally, we can now offer you an opportunity to light a candle inside the church. Fr. Richard will light a votive candle on your behalf, for your loved one, which will burn for five days. The candle lighting live stream will begin at 7:00 p.m. PDT on Facebook. To participate, please complete the online form.

All Souls Day - Book of the Dead and Virtual Memorial
Flowers with words Dia del los Muertos

Every year for the feast of All Saints Day we invite parishioners to write the names of their deceased relatives or loved ones in our Book of the Dead at Our Savior Parish. This year, due to COVID-19, we invite you to share with us their names so we can write them in the Book of the Dead for you. We will pray for them during our daily and Sunday Masses throughout the month of November.

In addition, we will be creating an Instagram story memorial for each deceased member of your family or friendship circle from October 31 through November 2. We will honor them in a special virtual memorial. Please submit your memorial request online
