May their souls...

Today the Church marks All Souls Day, a day to remember our beloved dead.  All of November, really, is set apart to remember and pray for the dead.  November was chosen because reminders of death are really all around us - barren trees, dead grass, long nights, shorter days, cold air, etc.

We are having brief prayer services in our chapel today and tomorrow and are inviting students to write the names of their beloved dead in our Book of the Names of the Dead.  The book will be in our chapel throughout the month and each morning we will name a few of the deceased for our morning prayer.

You are invited to send in names to us to be inscribed in our book at this link.

May the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.  Amen.
