02Nov Presider’s Page for Saturday 2 November (All Souls)

On All Saints Day and today, we remember all the dead, those in heaven and those still be on the way there: God alone knows where each soul is. Today we pray for all souls, for the faithful departed still on the journey to their heavenly home.

02Nov 02 November, 2019. All Souls’ Day

Why do we pray for people who have gone before us? It's based on the hope taught by Jesus himself. He once said: "All that the Father gives me will come to me; and him who comes to me I will not cast out."
