Saturday, November the 2nd marks the feast of All Souls day. On this day Christians remember all the souls of the faithful departed. You may have noticed from the newsletter or website that there are 3 Masses on this day. No, it isn’t a mistake!

Usually, a priest is only to celebrate one Mass per day however, Benedict XV in Incruentum altaris (1915), gave permission for priests to celebrate three masses. One for a specific intention, one for all the faithful departed and one for the Holy Father’s intentions.

In November we take time to remember all of our departed loved ones and there are envelopes at the back of the church where you can put a list of all those who you would like to be remembered during Mass in November.
