All Souls Intentions

October 2018
 

Dear Friends,

We quickly approach the month of November when the Church by long tradition calls to mind its deceased loved ones. At Masses and prayers throughout this month, the St. Ignatius Community remembers all of our deceased alumni, parents, benefactors and friends.

The memory of our many deceased friends and relatives brings tears to our eyes, and we find comfort in Jesus’ words to the disciples at the Last Supper, “I am indeed going to prepare a place for you, and then I shall come back to take you with me, that where I am you also may be.” Our thoughts and prayers reconnect us with our loved ones as we reach out our hands and hearts to our merciful Father.

During this month, the Jesuit Community specifically will remember your beloved deceased at our daily celebration of the Eucharist. We invite you to fill out the online remembrance card 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.
