All Souls Day

We believe that the souls of all who die in Christ’s grace... are the People of God beyond death. On the day of resurrection, death will be definitively conquered, when these souls will be reunited with their bodies”

Catechism of the Catholic Church

Commemoration of the Faithful Departed  •  Monday, November 2, 2020  •  Mass 7:00pm

The Feast of All Souls is a celebration for our departed brothers and sisters who at death may not have been cleansed from all their sins and are still undergoing the process of purification.  (This process is also known as Purgatory.)  Once all attachment to sin has been removed, and moral perfection is attained, these souls will enjoy the beatific vision in heaven.  We can help these souls achieve purification by prayer and by the sacrifice of the Mass.  All Souls Day differs from All Saints Day in that All Saints are already in heaven.

Please join us for the Mass as we remember those from Saint Gregory the Great Parish who have gone to their final rest since last year's All Souls' commemoration.

Memorial Tree Photo Display

During the month of November, photos of our departed loved ones will be displayed on our memorial trees in the Holy Family Chapel.

You are invited to bring a 4”x6” photo to be added to the display. Please write the name of the deceased on the back of the photo along with a contact name and phone number and take the photo to the parish office before Friday, October 30th. Unless you request to have the photo returned, we will hold it for next year’s display, and thereafter.

All Souls novena

Envelopes for the All Souls Novena will be available in the church and at the parish office. Place the names of all those you would like remembered during the novena on the envelope and return it either in the collection basket, mail, or drop off at the office.

The Novena will be prayed from November 2 thru November 10.

Please join us for the All Souls Mass on Monday, November 2, 2020, at 7:00pm. At this Mass, we remember those from Saint Gregory the Great Parish who have gone to their final rest since last year's All Souls' commemoration.
