Month of Remembrance

Friday, Oct. 25, 2013
Month of Remembrance

I reiterate Fr. Jack Treacy’s invitation to the University community to participate in the Month of Remembrance. Throughout November we honor a long-held tradition in Christian churches when we recall our departed loved ones and pray for their peace. Here are some ways to take part:

  • attend the special Mass on Friday, November 1, the Feast of All Saints, when we celebrate the lives of loved ones who have died. 
  • submit your personal prayer requests for departed family and friends through the online form. The names of your special intentions will be collected through October 28 and placed in the Book of Names in the Mission Church for remembrance until November 21.
  • inscribe the names of deceased loved ones in the Book of Names in the Mission Church.
  • share photos of loved ones at the Altar of Remembrance in the Mission Church.
