This Monday, the Feast of All Saints, begins the great crusade of prayer for the dead that the Church initiates each month of November. On the Feast of All Saints the Church rejoices with all the Saints who now share at God’s Heavenly Banquet. For the remaining days of November we remember those Souls now undergoing purification before the can share at God’s Table. We invite you to come to Mass during this month and pray for all whom you have loved and gone before you. Mass each morning at 10am.
This year we will have two November Remembrance Masses for all those who died since November, 2020.
The first Mass, on Saturday, 6th November at 5.30pm will remember all those who died between November, 2020 and May, 2021.
The Second Mass, celebrated on Sunday 7th November at 11.30am, will remember those who died from June, 2021 to the present.
All families will be notified of this arrangement. Two family members will be invited on the night to bring forward the lighted candle in memory of their loved one. This candle will be placed on the Altar at the Remembrance Mass.
