Sunday, October 30, 2022
- This is an outdoor event: rain or shine. Dress appropriately – umbrellas welcome!
- I’ve attached a map of the cemetery.
- We’ll use the attached Franciscan Crown Rosary that we used in 2020 as part of the worldwide OFS Day of Prayer that was tied to Feast of All Saints of the Seraphic Family. Can’t attend in person – pray this on own!
- We will also honor our OFS departed at the separate Mother Cabrini Celebration. This is something extra.
- This is an opportunity to live an aspect of Justice, Peace, and Integrity of Creation: Burying the Dead (corporal work of mercy).
- We are still working with the cemetery to better maintain this section and also advertise its use.
Thanks to Jerry Kolpa, OFS for advocating for this ministry.
