Welcome to our second virtual event in celebration of our Lay Formation Programs!

What is All Saints Day? What is All Souls Day? Why do we pray for the dead?

The month of November is dedicated to the Souls in Purgatory, whose feast is celebrated on November 2. Explore with us the Catholic tradition of praying for the dead as we hear from the speakers below.

This event will be hosted by Bonnie Rodgers, a Master of Arts in Ministry graduate '02, and a producer on CatholicTV.
