Children’s Grief Awareness Community Event, November 30th
EXPLANATION STATION by St John Nepomucene Adult Faith Formation
Why do we pray for the Holy Souls in November?
It is no coincidence that this time comes right before Advent, a liturgical season that prepares believers for light to appear in the midst of darkness. Death is not only a part of eternity, but also of community. We pray for each of the dead, not just for our own loved ones.
The church consists of those alive on earth and also those alive to God in heaven and in purgatory, which is marked by the feasts of All Saints on November 1st and All Souls on November 2nd. The prayers we offer are especially for those souls still in purgatory.
November is a great month to visit your favorite cemeteries for some beautiful moments of prayer, a great annual spiritual activity for the whole family.
