A TIME TO REMEMBER & A TIME TO PRAY
The Month of Holy Souls
The faithful are called to pray for the dead especially during November, the month of Holy Souls. During the Hallowtide Triduum, the Feast of All Saints is a time for the Church to honour and celebrate all the saints and martyrs in Heaven – both known and unknown. We especially honour the saints who have not been canonized or do not have a special feast day. Throughout the month of November, Catholics also pray for souls in purgatory who may be undergoing a process of purification before entering into the presence of God.
Order a Candle
One way for you to pray this month is through lighting a candle as a way of showing solidarity with the person on whose behalf the prayer is offered. We will place a lit candle on the grave of a loved one during Hallowtide if they are interred at Gardens of Gethsemani.
