Omnium Gatherum: All Souls Masses where YOU are

2 November, All Souls, is around the corner. This solemn observance, while not a Holy Day of Obligation, has always aroused in the faithful a strong response and turn out.

Many people have been asking me to post their parish’s Mass schedules and what they are doing. I can’t do that.

However, under this entry you can post on what is going on in your neck of the woods. Touch the bases: who, what, when, where, etc…

I remind priests that they can say Mass three times on 2 November, but they can accept only one stipend.

Also, on the sidebar I have an ad for travel altar cards.  They are compact, and helpful.  They make a set for Requiem Mass as well.   You might consider getting your priests a set of each.  Good gift for new transitional deacons, as well.

  3. A traditional Dominican Rite Missa Cantata of Requiem will be celebrated at St. Albert the Great Priory, 5890 Birch Court, Oakland CA. This Mass is organized by the Dominican students of the Western Dominican Province, who will sing the Dominican Propers and Ordinary, as well as serve the Mass.

    Assumption Grotto in Detroit, MI, is having a Solemn High Requiem Mass for All Souls Day on Nov. 2nd at 9:30 am. Father Perrone will conduct the Assumption Grotto Choir and members of the Michigan Opera Theatre Orchestra in Mozart’s Requiem. The prelude will begin at 9:15 am.

  5. MattH says:

    At the Church of Saint Agnes, in Saint Paul, Minnesota, the customary All Souls Day Requiem Mass with the Twin Cities Catholic Chorale will be on November 5th at 7:30 p.m. The music will be “W. A. Mozart, Requiem Mass, K 626.”

  6. MAJ Tony says:

    Holy Rosary, Indianapolis, 520 Stevens St. Indianapolis, IN 46203, is also doing Mozart’s Requiem. That Mass is from 11-1PM on Sat Nov 2. Warning to anyone coming, there is a major footrace (Monumental Marathon) in Indy that day as well. That event starts at 8:00 AM, and ends at 2:45 PM. ALL of that race is North and West of the Church . Anyone planning to come from the West may need to take an alternate route off I-70 IF they plan to arrive BEFORE 10:30 (see marathon map). I-65 exits at Morris 110A (Northbound) and exit 110B (Southbound) are good to go (they just opened the 65-70 merge section). Best way in from the west (regardless of the time) is the West St exit (79A) and take West St. south a block to Morris St (left turn to East) and drive to East street, head north (left turn).,+520+Stevens+Street,+Indianapolis,+IN+46203&hl=en&sll=39.707748,-86.262031&sspn=0.0277,0.038581&geocode=Fcz3XQIdsLXb-g%3BFUepXgIdoXrd-imPHlJ1nFBriDFRlkbbHyJ9jA&mra=mift&mrsp=0&sz=15&t=m&z=15 Church is just across East st. from Lilly’s downtown HQ. I drive in from Mooresville and usually take Mann to Kentucky, to Harding, to Morris.

    Parking lots are North, South, and Southeast of the Church. Parking is at a premium, and we expect SRO crowd. Orchestra is ad hoc, but consists largely of Butler University Orchestra members. I will be struggling through the Bass vocal parts.

    Solemn High Mass of Requiem for All Souls Day & Day of Recollection
    St. Thomas the Apostle Church, 2655 Woodley Rd NW
    (steps from Woodley Park Metro Station),
    Washington, D.C.

    JuventutemDC plans to mark All Souls Day, Nov. 2, with a Solemn High Mass of Requiem at 12:00 noon at St. Thomas the Apostle Church in Washington, D.C. (a short distance from the Woodley Park Metro station), celebrated by the chaplain of Juventutem DC, Msgr. Andrew Wadsworth, accompanied by Gregorian Chant Requiem by a local schola. It also plans, however, to preface the Mass with a “Day of Recollection” – a spiritual conference drawing important lessons on the day – moderated by Msgr. Wadsworth, beginning at 10:30 at the St. Thomas parish hall. Light refreshments will be available. St. Thomas the Apostle is the home also of a new community-in-formation for the Oratory, of the Congregation of St. Philip Neri.

    All Catholics in the greater Washington area (or beyond!) are encouraged to attend, regardless of age. For more information, please see our Facebook page or the recent New Liturgical Movement article about this special day.

  11. Missa Cantanta requiem (EF) at 8 a.m. at Blessed Sacrament parish in Springfield, Illinois.

  12. I intend to wander through a cemetery for awhile and pray for the dead. I believe there’s a plenary indulgence attached to that, applicable to the dead, correct?

  13. Jack Hughes says:

  15. rbbadger says:

    All Saints’ Day is not a Holy Day of Obligation in the Republic of Korea. Thus, most parishes will be operating according to their normal weekday Mass schedules. At Myeong-dong Cathedral in Seoul, there will be Masses for All Saint’s Day at 6:30 AM, 6:00 PM, and 7:00PM. There will also be a Mass at 10:00 AM in the Crypt.

    On All Soul’s Day, there will be a Mass at 6:30 AM in the main church and at 10:00 AM in the Crypt. However, there will be no evening Masses for All Souls’ Day, as these Masses will be for the Vigil of Sunday. The bulletin of the Cathedral notes that the faithful should visit a cemetery or a church and pray for the dead in order to obtain a plenary indulgence (? ??).

  16. acbprop says:

    St. Raphael Church, St. Petersburg, FL, has a Mass of Remembrance Wed., Nov. 6, at 7 p.m. That’s the time and day of our usual Wednesday night community Mass.

  17. Alex P says:

    At Our Lady of the Assumption, Swynnerton, Staffordshire, England, there will be a Low Mass at 10am, offered for the repose of the soul of King Richard III, who died in 1485 at the Battle of Bosworth. His remains were found not too long ago, and the Richard III Society have requested a Low Mass be said for King Richard in a rite as close to what Richard would have known and loved centuries ago.

  18. pannw says:


    Yes, you can get a plenary indulgence for the souls in purgatory by visiting a cemetery to pray for them, but not just on All Souls day, but anytime from November 1- November 8. And As I understand it from CatholicCulture, you can get a partial indulgence for them anytime you visit a cemetery and pray for the dead.

  19. HighMass says:

    Thanks for the reminder…..I Sent money to FSSP for they Holy Souls on both sides of the Family…

    Also Don’t forget the Prayer Christ gave to St. Gertrude, each time we say it Christ promised 1000 souls are released from Purgatory….

  32. lucy says:

    We had a Nov. 1 EF Mass planned, but now since the bishop has moved one of the two priests able to say the EF Mass to a location further away than he was before, we can’t have it. The other priest hasn’t returned an answer to our request as yet. He’s very busy in his own parish. We are left orphans once again.

  33. msc says:

    “Also Don’t forget the Prayer Christ gave to St. Gertrude, Christ promised 1000 souls are released from Purgatory….” I missed that in my New Testament.

  37. RichR says:

    Just got back from the chanted Latin NO Mass in College Station. Two young priests concelebrating, Schola Cantorum in full garb, Gregorian chant, Renaissance polyphony, incense, and about 150-200 people…and it was at 8:00AM. Everything was chanted: Latin Propers, responses, the Canon, and in English they chanted the Gospel, readings and intercessions. The best part was, right after the consecration all the power went out, and the two young priests, without missing a beat, continued chanting the Canon while a beam of smoky sunlight shined down on them from a window high above the altar.

    It truly was awe-inspiring to pray that Mass and offer it for those who have pierced the veil.
