November and remembering the Holy Souls.

Published on October 28, 2022

November is a time for remembering and praying for our loved ones who have gone before us and whose loss we feel. It is a time when we are particularly conscious of those in our parishes who are grieving and all those families who have lost loved ones in the past year. Here in Newmarket on Fergus Parish we mark this time of year with the blessing of the graves, the celebration of remembrance services as well as commemorating All Saints’ and All Souls’ Day.
