2018 Solemn High Requiem Mass on All Souls Day (Latin Mass)

October 28th, 2018, Promulgated by Administrator

7:00PM Friday evening, Nov. 2nd!

Reprising the success of the All Souls’ Day celebration in 2017, again a Solemn High Requiem Mass in the Extraordinary Form will be held in All Souls Chapel at Holy Sepulchre Cemetery! 


Here are some memories of last year’s celebration, beginning with the first gasp from attendees as the three priests entered the Chapel in traditional black vestments, to the concluding Absolution over the Catafalque. 











A very special experience awaits those who love the Latin Mass — being able to attend in such an extraordinary setting!
