All Souls Letter

Dear Saint Anne Family,

November is the month of All Souls, when we remember our faithful departed. As Catholics, we believe, in accord with scripture and tradition, that praying for the dead is “a holy and pious thing…that they might be delivered from their sins” (2 Macc. 12:45).

At Saint Anne Parish, we intercede for the faithful departed in our All Souls Day Novena, from All Souls Day, Saturday, 2 November, through Sunday, 10 November. On each of the 9 days of this Novena, the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass will be offered at Saint Anne’s for the Holy Souls in Purgatory, including your deceased family members and loved ones.
