All Souls Day is Wednesday, November 2nd. While it is not a holy day of obligation, it is an act of mercy to pray for the dead, so please consider getting to Mass. See some resources below to learn more about All Souls Day.
In the evening, there will be a special Solemn High Requiem Mass, with the Assumption Grotto Choir, which normally has it’s rehearsals on Wednesday nights. Fr. Perrone says that in addition to the evening Mass, there will be five Masses in the morning. These are presumed to begin at 7:30 a.m. He will probably talk about this in his column this weekend and we will try to bring that to you.
