All Souls Mass

Each November on All Souls' Day we pray for all of our deceased loved ones, especially those who have died during the past year.

At St. Francis Xavier Parish we have a tradition to honor those who have gone home to God before us. Over 9,000 names of the former parishioners and family members have been inscribed into a beautiful Parish Book of the Dead. This book is displayed in our Sanctuary during the entire month of November. Throughout the year we add those names that have passed on over the last year.

During our Liturgy planned and prepared by our St. Francis Ministers of Care, all of our deceased parishioners and friends are prayed for by name. A candle will be lighted in memory of each person and presented with during the offertory.

If you would like to honor your deceased loved one from St. Francis Parish at this liturgy, please contact the Ministry of Care Office.
