Feast of All Saints

Novena for the Faithful Departed
Beginning on Monday week, Nov 2nd. There will be online Mass every weekday, Monday to Saturday, at 9.00 am and on Sunday at 10.30 am.
Lists for the Commemoration of the Faithful Departed may be deposited in church porches or parish house. As usual, the lists will be on the altar for all nine Masses.
A reminder, too, that the church continues to be open every day, affording an opportunity to offer personal prayers for the Faithful Departed.

Mass for the Bereaved
Usually celebrated on the Friday night during the novena with the attendance and participation of those who were bereaved since last November. This will be impossible now but special arrangement will be in place.

As usual we will be commemorating the Kilbrittain funerals (11) and those from outside parishes whom we had been asked to include in the Sunday Mass prayers by a Kilbrittain relative or friend (20). Also as usual we will have a candle prepared for each one of these with the name of the deceased.

What will be different this year is that those 31 candles will be on a table in front of the altar for the entire novena. They will remain unlit and can be taken away by a family member afterwards for lighting at home.

The names of all those being commemorated will be published on Facebook during the coming week and on parish Bulletin and parish website next weekend.

Cemetery Visits
The long-standing Indulgences for visits to a cemetery during November can be particularly useful this year. There is no restriction on this and everybody has at least one cemetery within 5 Km and probably would not be penalised anyway for travelling farther for this purpose.
The faithful who have confessed, received Holy Communion, and prayed for the Pope’s intentions (one Our Father and Hail Mary, or any other prayer of one’s choice) and who visit a cemetery and pray for the dead may gain a plenary indulgence applicable only to the Holy Souls on the usual conditions once per day from 1st to 8th November. This indulgence is applicable only to the souls of the departed. The stipulation for Holy Communion has to be set aside and the ‘Act of Contrition’ will suffice instead of Confession.

Offertory envelopes for the Autumn Dues and November List are available in the porches now. They can be returned to boxes in the porches or to parish house. Thank you for your support
