Holy Souls


As the month of November is approaching, a month of special prayer for the souls of our deceased, I would like to encourage you to pray together for those who have passed away.

In the Sanctuary you can find a basket with envelopes in which you can put a card with the names of the deceased. You can also use ordinary envelopes for this.

Please return your envelopes to the Church (put it in the collection basket) or to the Parish office (put it in the letter box).  Your donation can be placed in the envelope. Mass for Holy Souls will be offered for them during the month of November.

All Saints Day will be celebrated on Sunday 31st October during the normal Masses at St Edward’s.

All Souls Day will fall on Tuesday 2nd November. On that day, as well as the 10.00 am Mass at St Edward’s, we will have an additional evening Mass at 7.00 pm. During this Mass we will pray, not only for all the departed, but especially for those parishioners, who passed away in the last year. I would like to invite to this Mass, those who lost their loved ones since last November (2020). We could put photographs or even Orders of Service of those who died on the steps of the Sanctuary.

Additional Masses, where photos and orders of service will also be welcomed:

Sunday, 31st October, All Saints Day – Rothwell at 9.00 am

Tuesday, 2nd November, All Souls Day – Burton Latimer at 5.00 pm

Tuesday, 2nd November, All Souls Day – Desborough at 5.00 pm

On November 7, we will remember and pray especially for Father Wilson, who passed away two years ago. We will mention his name and pray for him during all Sunday Masses, particularly in Burton Latimer at 9.00 am during Sunday Mass.
