“All Souls Day” Event In Geneseo Cemetery

October 20th, 2014, Promulgated by Bernie

Now here is a great way to observe All Souls Day this year. Our Mexican friends will recognize it as a version of the Day of the Dead celebrations (see here). It’s an idea that perhaps other Catholic cemeteries/parishes might plan for in the future. Saint Mary’s Cemetery is on Facebook. The cemetery is at 27 Crossett Road, Geneseo, NY.

Two versions of the flyer.

    We experienced this on a trip to Poland in 2006. It’s a countrywide holiday and everyone was walking to their cemetery on All Souls Day carrying flowers to visit the graves of their loved ones. We were at the cemetery where Pope St. John Paul II’s family is buried and paid homage to his dead. Amazing sight, all those people in family units crowding a cemetery, praying and decorating family graves. It was our understanding that such was taking place all over the country. +JMJ
