All Souls’ Day Remembrance

On November 2nd, the Church celebrates All Souls’ Day as a reminder to pray for all the souls who are in purgatory awaiting their eternal salvation. As a St. Patrick’s Catholic School family, we would like to pray for your loved ones who have passed away. A slip of paper will be going home with the oldest or only child of your family on Friday. If you would like us to pray for your loved ones after Mass during the month of November, please write their names on the slip of paper and send it back to school by Thursday, Oct. 31st. All slips will be placed at the foot of the altar for the month of November.
