In the Roman Catholic Church, it is customary during the month of November to remember in a special way those who have passed away. A special day of remembrance is given on Monday with prayer and Masses. CBU will reverence this special day with three observances:
An All Soul's Day prayer will be offered during lunch in Alfonso Dining Hall at 11:15 a.m. and 12:15 p.m.
All are invited to pray the Rosary at 3:00 p.m. in St. Joseph Chapel (Barry Hall).
An All Soul's Day Mass will be offered at 5:00 p.m. in De La Salle/Stritch Chapel.
It is a holy and good thing that we, the living, pray with and for those who have passed into new life. May God continue to bless them as he blesses each one of us.
