November: We Remember the Dead

Posted on October 28, 2013

  November is traditionally a month when we pay special honor to those who have gone before us in death. During this month we will carry, in the entrance procession, the register containing the names of all of those whose funerals have been celebrated at Pope John XXXIII.
