Remembering our departed loved ones in November
“From the earliest times, the Church has honoured the memory of the dead and offered suffrage for them, particularly the Eucharistic sacrifice so that purified from their sins, they will attain the beatific vision of God. The Church also recommends charity, indulgences and penance as suffrage for the dead.” (Catholic Church catechism para 1032)
Throughout the centuries, Catholics have followed the custom of requesting that Mass be celebrated for themselves, or for loved ones, living or deceased.
The benefits of each Mass are infinite and include the whole world. Those who have holy Mass offered, and those for whom a Mass is offered, partake in a special way of the grace of the Eucharistic sacrifice.
The Masses you offer will be celebrated by priests who are carrying out pastoral work in places where the Church is persecuted or extremely poor.
The requested offering for each Mass is €5.
