Faith Facts – Clara Mapley DRS

This Friday we will be celebrating the Feast of All Saints and All Souls with a whole school Mass. 

All Saints’ Day is a solemn holy day of the Catholic Church celebrated annually on November 1. The day is dedicated to the saints of the Church, that is, all those who have attained heaven.

All Souls’ Day is a day to remember the souls of all who have died, but especially those who have not yet attained Heaven. This feast should serve as a valuable reminder of who we are and what we are made for.  It should also be a special day to fondly remember loved ones who are no longer with us.

Here is a prayer we can say all year round to pray for those we know who have died:

Eternal Rest grant unto them, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them.
May they rest in peace.
