A Solemn High Mass of Requiem for the repose of the souls of all the war dead, commemorating in particular the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I, will be held Sunday, Nov. 11, at 10 a.m. Veterans, active-duty service members, their families and loved ones are especially invited to attend this special service.
We will also remember with great solemnity all the departed who have entered into the nearer presence of God. Are you mourning the loss of someone near to you, or simply want to honor the memory of your departed loved ones? If you submit the names of your departed loved ones to [email protected] by Wednesday, Oct. 31, their names will be listed in the service booklet and remembered in the Mass intentions.
We often don’t give ourselves the space to mourn and remember, and the Requiem Mass, with its total focus on those who have died, is a powerful and intimate way of doing so. At the liturgy, a catafalque symbolizing all those who have passed on before us is placed at the front of the church, and special prayers are said for the repose of their souls. Rich in ritual and symbolism, the Requiem is a profound experience for those who have never before encountered it, and a moving one no matter how many Requiem Masses one has attended.
We invite all who wish to honor the war dead, and all those who mourn, to join us in this special service of remembrance.
