November is the month that the Catholic Church has dedicated to praying for all those who have died, beginning with celebrating all Saints day on 1 November 2019, and all Souls day on 2 November 2019.
Traditionally, people visit the graves of their loved ones and share memories of their lives. As we still feel deeply connected to family and friends who have departed this life, contemplating in the sacred grounds of the cemetery can bring a certain element of peace.
Although there are many Masses offered in the church for our faithful departed during the year and especially during November, Fr Michael Dyer, set aside a day to celebrate Mass in the Cemetery where parishioners were invited to pray for their loved ones and for others who may have no one to pray for them.
