NOVEMBER is Dedicated to the Holy Souls in Purgatory
In the Catholic Church, the month of November is traditionally given over to prayers for the holy souls. The most powerful form of prayer for the souls in purgatory is the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. It is also a traditional practice to visit a cemetery and pray for the dead. Enter the names of dearly departed in the Book of the Living, found in St. John’s lower chapel.
