All Saints Day Commemoration Planned Nov. 1 at Hendricks Chapel
A Catholic Mass is scheduled in Hendricks Chapel on Tuesday, Nov. 1, to commemorate the occasion of the Solemnity of All Saints. The Mass will take place at 11:45 a.m. in the chapel and all are welcome to attend.
All Souls Day, or the commemoration of all the faithful departed, is celebrated by the Catholic Church every year on Nov. 2. The commemoration offers a time for the community to remember deceased friends and family members in prayer. In the Catholic Church, those individuals who have “gone before us marked with the sign of faith” are believed to have inherited eternal life in the Kingdom of Heaven, says Father Gerry Waterman, the University’s Catholic chaplain.
Community members who want the names of deceased individuals recognized typically write their loved ones’ names in a book of remembrance near the church altar, and the individuals are remembered at Sunday Masses throughout the month of November. For the campus community commemoration, individuals can submit the names of those they want remembered via the digital form.
