All Souls’ Day

Today is the feast of All Souls. This feast reminds us of human finitude and mortality.

On this day, the Church remembers and prays for the Souls of the Faithful Departed. We are therefore encouraged to express our solidarity with the souls in purgatory through public and private prayers, and obtain plenary indulgences by offering the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, visiting a Church or a Cemetery and giving alms to the poor.

The Church mandates all Priests to celebrate three (3) Masses on this day: one for the faithful departed, one for the priest’s intention or any person, and one for the intention of the Holy Father. We will do well to remember victims of the various disasters in the world. We are requested to pray for the victims of the various religious disturbances in our nation especially the victims of the Boko Haram insurgence and internally displaced people in the North East

We are all encouraged to attend mass today in our various parishes.
