This November CAFOD are holding Memorial Masses in each diocese in remembrance of all our supporters and loved ones who have died.
These Masses are our opportunity to stop and say thank you for the incredible impact our supporters have made. Without them we would not be able to reach those most in need.
There is a Memorial Mass this evening (Tuesday) 7 November for the Cardiff Archdiocese at 7 pm at Our Lady, Queen of Martyrs parish, 101 Belmont Road Hereford by kind permission of Father Mathew Carney OSB.
Tomorrow (Wednesday) 8 November, we are celebrating our Memorial Mass for the diocese of Menevia at 7 pm at Our Lady, Star of the Sea parish, Devon Place, Mumbles, Swansea by kind permission of Father Mansel Usher.
“Church tradition has always urged prayer for the dead, in particular by offering the celebration of the Eucharist for them: it is the best spiritual help that we can give to their souls, particularly to the most abandoned ones. The foundation of prayers of remembrance is found in the communion of the Mystical Body. Remembering the dead, caring for their tombs and prayers of suffrage are testimony to confident hope, rooted in the certainty that death does not have the last word on human destiny, as humanity is destined for a life without end, that has its root and its fulfillment in God.
Pope Francis, Angelus, St. Peter’s Square, Nov. 2, 2014
There are many ways to remember our loved ones in a very meaningful, positive way, enabling their memory and kindness to live on.
Pray for those who mourn.
