Parishioners are invited to bring photos of their deceased loved ones to be placed on the Table of Remembrance. Those whose names are recorded in the Book of Remembrance will be remembered at Mass throughout the month. There are also envelopes available for special Masses offered for the dead. Catholics can also obtain a plenary indulgence under the usual conditions for the souls of the departed by visiting a cemetery between November 1st and 8th and praying for the dead.
