All Souls Day

Our cemetery in the spring

We are blessed to have our cemetery on our monastery property, so we can go and "visit" our deceased sisters very easily. November is the month especially dedicated to prayers for the dead,  so we'll be saying a lot of extra prayers for our departed friends, relatives, and benefactors--basically for all the faithful departed! Do you have someone you would like us to include in our prayers? Please, e-mail their name(s) to us here. We'd be happy to remember them in our prayers by name.
 Eternal rest grant to them, O Lord 
And let perpetual light shine upon them. 
May their souls, and the souls of all the faithful departed, rest in peace. Amen.
