Dear Members of the Assumption Community,
Beginning with All Saints Day (Nov. 1) and All Souls Day (Nov. 2), the month of November has traditionally been a time to remember our deceased loved ones in prayer. A remembrance shrine will be set up during the month of November in the Chapel of the Holy Spirit at Assumption. Visitors to the Chapel will be invited to write the names of deceased family members and friends in a remembrance book, and other members of the Assumption community are invited to send in names to be placed at the remembrance shrine by going to https://www.assumption.edu/student-experience/spiritual-life/prayers-deceased. We will remember all of these deceased family members and friends whenever the Assumption community gathers for prayer in the Chapel during the month of November.
Mass will be celebrated at 5:00 PM in the Chapel of the Holy Spirit on Monday, November 1 for the Solemnity of All Saints. Because November 1 falls on a Monday this year, All Saints is not a holyday of obligation this year, but all members of the Assumption community are welcome to participate in Mass at 5:00 PM, as well as Morning Prayer at 8:00 AM and Evening Prayer at 5:35 PM
May God welcome our loved ones into eternal life and surround us with comfort and hope as we grieve and remember them.
Deacon Paul Covino
Director of Campus Ministry
