Dear Brothers and Sisters:
The celebrations of All Saints Day and All Souls Day begin the month of November on a prayerful note as the Church calls to mind her deceased loved ones and we celebrate in prayer the ways in which they continue to inspire and bless our daily lives.
We seize this opportunity to deepen our faith, recalling Jesus’ final words in Matthew’s Gospel, “And behold, I am with you always, until the end of the age.”May we find much consolation as we recall with deep affection our many deceased family members, friends and companions and commend them to the hands of a loving God.
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 and then click submit.The cards will be placed by the altar in our chapel.
Beginning with the Feast of All Saints on November 1, and continuing throughout the month, we will remember your deceased family and friends in our daily Masses and prayers. Please fill out the form below, and we will keep these individuals in our prayers.
May the God of all consolation bless you in the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.Amen.
Devotedly yours in Christ,
Edward A. Reese, S.J.
President, St. Ignatius College Preparatory
