All Souls Day – Holy Mass Outdoor at Calvary, 10am, and Ecumenical Service at Crosstown Concourse, 5pm
All Souls Day is today, Tuesday, Nov. 2, and is dedicated to those who have died and not yet reached heaven.
This morning, at 10am, please join Bishop Talley for an outdoor Holy Mass at our Historic Calvary Catholic Cemetery, 1663 Elvis Presley Blvd., commemorating All Souls Day—and to honor the Sisters of the Poor Clares.
The Mass will be live-streamed on our Diocese Facebook. Bishop Talley will be the Celebrant and Homilist, and Priest and Deacons will be at the Mass from across our Diocese. All are welcome to commemorate the faithfully departed.
Any questions or more information, call Catholic Cemeteries: 901-948-1529.
Also, Catholics can get an indulgence for the dead by praying at a Cemetery in November. Click the following link to read: CNANewsIndulgence.
