On Wednesday, November 2, the Church observes a day of prayer for the dead, asking the Lord to grant them forgiveness of their sins in the healing purification of Purgatory and eternal rest in Heaven. Our Requiem High Mass will be held at 7 PM that day. The Church encourages all of us to pray for the deceased throughout the month of November.
From November 1st through the 8th, a plenary indulgence can be obtained for the Poor Souls by visiting a cemetery and there praying for the deceased. A partial indulgence can be obtained simply by saying the prayer, “Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them. May they rest in peace.”
