Month of Holy Souls

Wednesday, Oct. 24, 2012
Month of Holy Souls

During November, the Month of Holy Souls, we will honor the long-held tradition in the Catholic Church when we remember in a special way our deceased loved ones. We shall offer our prayers for family and friends who have died and pray for their eternal peace in the Lord.  I invite you to submit your personal requests through the online remembrance form. Submissions will be collected through Wednesday, October 31, and placed in the Book of Names for remembrance throughout the month of November, beginning at the Mass for the Feast of All Saints on Thursday, November 1 in the Mission Church. Masses that day will be at 12:05 p.m., 5:00 p.m. and a Misa en Español at 8:00 p.m. Throughout November, the Book of Names will remain on display in the Mission Church.  My hope is that the prayers we offer throughout the month bring a sense of peace and consolation to all of us who have lost loved ones.
