Friday, November 1 is All Saints’ Day, a holyday of obligation. Mass will be offered both at 9 AM and 7 PM.
Saturday, November 2 is All Souls’ Day, with Mass at 9 AM. 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. A plenary indulgence, applicable only to the Poor Souls, is granted to those who visit any parish or public oratory on All Souls’ Day and there recite one Our Father and one Credo.
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.
