All Souls' Day

The 2nd of November is All Souls' Day. This is when the Church remembers those who have gone before us - relatives, friends, neighbours. You can visit the graveyard all year through, but November is a special time for doing so. You can lighten a candle at a grave and say a prayer for someone you knew or for all who are lying at the graveyard.

See the video about All Saints' and All Souls' Day

Prayers for All Souls Day

Eternal Rest grant unto them,
O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them.
May they rest in peace.

My God,
bestow Thy blessings and Thy mercies
on all persons
and on those souls in Purgatory
for whom I am in charity, gratitude, or friendship bound
and have the desire to pray. Amen
