Every November, Catholics around the world are asked to pray in a special way for the repose of the souls of the dead. As a way of marking this special month, Archbishop John Nienstedt will be offering a Mass of Remembrance for all Deceased Clergy of the archdiocese at 11:30 a.m., Nov. 7 at the Cathedral of St. Paul.

“Praying for the dead is a Spiritual Work of Mercy, an act of real Christian love, and praying for those who have touched our lives in profound ways is especially important,” said Father John Paul Erickson, director of the archdiocesan Office of Worship.

The Mass, he said, is an opportunity to “offer thanks to God for the gift of their lives and their service, and pray that they see the Lord they served in fidelity and love face to face.”
