In the coming week, we will both celebrate All Saints’ Day, and commemorate All Souls’ Day. In addition to the normal weekday TLM schedule, we will have additional Masses for these important days, including a Pontifical Requiem Mass at the Throne.
All Saints Day
First, on Wednesday, November 1, we honor the feast of All Saints — a holyday of obligation.
We will have a Sung Mass (possibly Solemn) at St Mary’s Pine Bluff, beginning at 7:00 pm
All Souls’ Day
Then, on Thursday, November 2, we will pray for all the faithful departed on All Souls’ Day. Following a now several years old tradition, His Excellency Bishop Robert Morlino will celebrate a Pontifical Requiem Mass at the Throne with Absolution at the Catafalque for the intentions of the deceased bishops and priests of the Diocese of Madison.
This Mass will be at Holy Name Heights (formerly the Bp O’Connor Center), beginning at 7:00 pm.
