NOVEMBER IS THE MONTH OF THE HOLY SOULS: When we pray for the quick and merciful release and happy repose in Heaven of the Holy Souls in that state of purification that Holy Mother Church calls Purgatory. Envelopes for monies and lists of departed to be remembered are in a basket on the table at the back of the Church. Lists will then be put in a folder and placed in the Sanctuary and the names remembered collectively at N.D.L. Masses during the month. In addition the “De Profundis” will be recited after all weekday Masses.
