Remembering our Loved Ones in this Month of November
You are invited to inscribe the names of your loved ones who have died in our Book of Life at the front of the Church. This is an opportunity to share in the prayer of the community for those who have died and those that we still hold close to our hearts. You are invited as well to write the names of the deceased in the prayer slips at the back of the Church and place them before the Icon of Our Mother of Perpetual Help, or in the Intentions Boxes at the back of the Church. All Souls Day Mass envelopes are available on the counter for your use for several Masses that will celebrated throughout November.
