All Souls Intentions

2020
 

Dear Friends,

People around the globe yearn for a peaceful end to this unsettling and challenging year of virus and violence. That makes more poignant than usual this upcoming month of remembrance when we recall not only our recently deceased loved ones but also gentler times when we felt more in control of our lives. The Saint Ignatius Community joins with you in prayer as deceased family members and friends come to mind.

Unable to congregate and assemble in either joy or sorrow, we reach out with compassionate and prayerful hands, praying with you and for you, as you remember your departed loved ones. We find comfort in Paul’s words, “For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” (Romans 8:38-39)

Throughout the month of November the Jesuit Community will remember all your beloved deceased at our daily celebration of the Eucharist. We invite you to fill out the online remembrance card below with the names of your deceased loved ones. These cards will rest on the altar in our community chapel throughout November.

May the God of all consolation bless you and your family now and forever. Amen
