I just wanted to share a quick note that the 7pm All Souls Day Mass at St. Monica’s will be chanted this year. The chant will be in the Ordinary Form with both English and Latin, so it will be a bit more comfortable for individuals who are not accustomed to a chanted Mass. Please feel free to invite anyone you think might be interested!
Also, just a reminder: a plenary indulgence is available each day you visit a cemetery between Nov 1st and 8th. Click on the link for more details.
Lastly – if you know of anyone in the DC area, please invite them to visit the exhibit at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception, entitled “An Illuminated Requiem: Meditations on Love and Mortality” The exhibit runs from Oct 29th to Nov 29th. There will be an artist’ talk on Nov 15th at 7pm, explaining the content of the work. Anyone with an interest in chant or the Catholic understanding of mortality will find it interesting. I will post a video of the talk when it is available. You can view the work at http://www.annschmalstieg.com/portfolio/requiem-series
Preparation is underway for Advent Vespers – be sure to check back in the middle of the month for more information!
