Friday, November 2
In our Catholic tradition, during the entire month of November, we pray for our loved ones who have died. Most especially, we remember them on November 2, the Commemoration of All Souls. All who grieve the loss of someone special, whether recently or years ago, are invited to attend the 7 p.m. All Souls’ Mass on Friday, November 2, to pray and light a candle for loved ones who have died.
To remember those whom we mourn in a tangible way and make their presence a part of this special liturgy, you are invited to bring a memento to place on a memory table prior to Mass. The memento might be a picture of your loved one or some other small article that means a great deal to you as you remember them. Following Mass, we invite you to join Bereavement Ministers and Ministers of Care in the Gathering Space to share stories about your loved one over refreshments. As we mourn, each time we tell our story, we take another step in our healing. If you have questions, please contact Mary Manson at (847) 843-9262.
