A friend alerted me to the following:
There will be a Solemn Pontifical Requiem Mass at the faldstool for All Souls Day in Manhattan (37th St. and Broadway) at the Church of the Holy Innocents, Monday, November 2nd at 6:30 PM. His Excellency, James Timlin, Bishop Emeritus of Scranton, will celebrate. The choir will sing the entire Victoria Requiem for six voices and, after Mass, there will be the Rite of Absolution at the catafalque.
That should be a wonderful and fitting way to pray for the dead.
This may be the first Pontifical Requiem in NY in 40 years.
