November is the month when we Catholics pray in a special way for the repose of the dead and, by God’s will, for the rapid entrance into heaven of the Poor Souls.
On All Souls Day, Friday, 2 November, at 7 PM at the chapel of Holy Name Heights, His Excellency Most Reverend Robert C. Morlino, with the help of many clerical and lay ministers, will celebrate a Solemn Pontifical Requiem Mass at the Throne.
The Mass is for the intention of all the deceased priests and bishops of the Diocese of Madison.
All are invited to participate.
It is a work of mercy to remember in prayer the many priests who have served us in the past and who have gone to their Creator. Especially to be remembered are those who died during the last year.
The music for the Mass, under the direction of Mr. Aristotle Esguerra, will be Gregorian Chant and the Missa pro defunctis a 4 by Steffano Bernardi (+1636), with other motets.
Where: Bishop O’Conner Pastoral Center / Holy Name Heights – 702 S. High Point Road, Madison 608-821-3000
When: 7:00 PM
Why: All Souls Day Intention for Deceased Priests and Bishops of the Diocese of Madison
