We remember all our beloved dead, especially our family members and friends, our parishioners, those who have died in this past year, and all those who have died during the pandemic. We pray that all the dead will know God’s mercy and feast at the banquet of heaven.
You are invited to bring a picture of your departed family members or friends and place those on the side altar of St. Joseph or Our Lady of Sorrows.
Also, the Book of the Names of the Dead will be at the St. Joseph altar this month; please write the names of your departed family member and friends there so that we can remember them in prayer during November.
