All Souls’ Day Appeal
As All Souls’ Day approaches (November 2nd), many of us reflect and pray for those we have lost. Losing a loved one is always painful, but experiencing grief during the COVID-19 pandemic is especially difficult. If you lost someone this year, you may not have been able to be with him/her when they died. Participation in wakes and funerals has been limited and many have been unable to mourn in-person with family and friends. This All Souls’ Day, please consider honoring your loved one with a donation to Catholic Charities, Diocese of Joliet.
Your All Souls’ Day gift to Catholic Charities will help individuals and families who are living in poverty build toward a life of self-sufficiency. Your gift will help the homeless, the hungry, and the lost. What a wonderful way to honor someone special and continue his/her legacy.
When you make your gift, please include the name of someone for whom you would like a prayer said this All Souls’ Day. Or, perhaps, you would prefer a prayer for the most forgotten souls as we implore God to grant them a place of happiness, light, and peace.
Thank you for your commitment to our mission to serve those in need, particularly during this challenging time.
Blessings to you and to all those you love. Please click here to make a donation!
