November – Month of the Holy Souls
The Feasts of All Saints and All Souls will be celebrated on Sunday 1 November and on Monday, 2 November.
- Due to the public health emergency it will not be possible to have our usual shared moment of prayer for our deceased loved ones in the cemeteries. Naturally, families are welcome to visit the graves of their loved ones to pray for them. The priests in our pastoral area will visit each cemetery during November to bless the graves and pray for those buried there.
- The usual Masses for the Holy Souls will be offered during November by the priests of our pastoral area. You will find a list for the Holy Souls in your box of envelopes or you may collect a Holy Souls envelope by contacting our pastoral office.
- Mass for the feast of All Souls (Monday 2 November) will be celebrated at 7pm in St Michael’s Church, Kildysart. Due to the public health emergency it will not be possible to have a congregation present but the Mass will be livestreamed on the Kildysart parish facebook page. The Mass will be offered for parishioners and relations of parishioners of Kildysart and Coolmeen-Cranny parishes who have died since last November. If you would like to have a loved one included in this Mass you are welcome to contact our pastoral office by telephone or e mail.
