For the Departed on All Souls Day

On Thursday November 2, All Souls Day, my classes and I will be taking time out to pray for the departed. I think it is important to teach the kids the importance of praying for the dead because of the effects it may have, but also as a way to remember the departed. I find that praying for the departed gives me a chance to remember, and in a limited way, connect with my departed friends and relatives.

If you wish for your departed friends and relatives to be included in our school prayers, either add the names in the comment section or please e-mail me the names at perchristum[at] (replace [at] with @). We will be praying in the school chapel before the Blessed Sacrament.
