Sharing memories of those we have lost is an important tradition at Saint Mary’s. Father Burns shared his thoughts on this observance in a letter to the community:
“Among the many important and meaningful traditions in the Catholic Church and at Saint Mary’s is the upcoming observation of All Souls Day on Nov. 2. We invite you to join us in prayer during the month of November in gratitude for the memories we hold of our dearly departed and the relationships we will forever treasure. In the Lasallian Catholic tradition, we recall them throughout our shared presence of God as we pray for the repose of their souls. Praying throughout the great Communion of Saints and with the Holy Souls, we lift our minds, our hearts, and our own souls, with them, to our good God.” — Father James P. Burns, IVD, Ph.D., president
