The All Saints Day Blessing of Cemeteries

The blessing of cemeteries in St. Jane Parish will take place following the 8AM Mass, and the Holy Hour.

The Vatican has extended the Indulgence gained by visiting, and praying in, a Cemetery, to the entire month of November.

“Indulgences are granted when a Catholic visits a cemetery to pray for the dead, goes to confession, attends Mass and receives the Eucharist and prays for the intentions of the pope.”
