All Souls Day: Thursday, November 2.
The Book of the Names of the Dead is available by the candles at the front of the church to write in the names of your deceased loved ones and friends.
All Souls Day is a holy day set aside for honouring the dead and throughout the month of November, the Church also remembers our faithful departed. The need and duty of prayer for the departed souls has been acknowledged by the Church at all times as “it is a holy and wholesome thought to pray for the dead, that they may be loosed from their sins.” (2 Maccabees 12:46). Through our prayers, the dead are cleansed of their sins, so that they may enter heaven.
The celebration of the Mass is the highest means the Church can provide for charity for the dead, but we can also relieve their suffering through our prayers, sufferings and penances. We can also help the Poor Souls by doing acts and prayers that have indulgences attached to them.
Indulgences for the Poor Souls:
One can gain a plenary indulgence applicable to the Souls in Purgatory, by visiting a cemetery each day between November 1 and November 8, or by piously visiting a church or public oratory on November 2 and reciting one Our Father and the Creed.
In addition, a partial indulgence can be also obtained for the Souls in Purgatory when the Eternal Rest is
prayed anytime of the year, but especially during the month of November.
So let us pray for the faithful departed:
Eternal rest grant to them, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them. May the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of god, rest in peace.
Prayer Goup: Would you like to part of a prayer group? Myrna Ewanek at 403 609-4408 or firstname.lastname@example.org would love to hear from you as she is wanting to belong to a small group interested in developing their prayer life.
The only definite is that the meetings will not be held on a Monday or Wednesday evening.
