On Wednesday, November 1, we celebrate the Solemnity of All Saints, a Holy Day of Obligation honoring all the saints, known and unknown. Masses will be at 5:30pm on Tuesday, October 31, and at 7am, 8am, 11am, 12:10pm with Cardinal Wuerl, 5:30pm and 7pm (Spanish) on November 1.
On All Souls’ Day on Thursday, November 2, we commemorate deceased family members and loved ones. We pray for our departed loved ones and all souls who await the resurrection of their bodies in Christ. Cardinal Wuerl celebrates the 12:10pm Mass on All Souls’ Day, which follows the regular weekday Mass schedule.
We remember our deceased loved ones in a special way in November. Each day a special Mass is offered for this intention. Special envelopes are provided in the pews so that you can list the names of the deceased to be remembered at these daily Masses. The envelopes, which can be dropped in the collection basket or at the rectory, will be placed on the altar in the Wedding Chapel.
