Starting on All Souls Day (November 2) and during all of the month of November we remember those in our lives who have passed away. Fox Funeral Home has arranged to have a Memorial Mass celebrated here at Our Lady Queen of Martyrs Church for the specific intentions of those who passed on this last year. During this Mass we will invite you to light a candle in their memory.
Fox Funeral Home Memorial Mass
Saturday, November 5, 2016 at 10:30 a.m.
We are also remembering all those who we buried here at our church during the last five years through a reading of their names, in alphabetical order, at Masses starting on November 2 and continuing through the end of the month. We pray for our own beloved family members who have died and remember those who have no one to pray for them.
November is customarily a time to visit the graves of loved ones and pray for them at the site of their resting place. The Catholic Cemeteries office can assist us in choosing a gravesite or crypt where we would like to be buried. Contact Catholic Cemeteries by calling 718-894-4888 or going to www.ccbklyn.org.
It is also time to remember that the cremains (ashes) of our loved ones deserve a final resting place. While the Church is not opposed to cremation, it instructs that cremated remains of a body should be treated with the same respect given to the human body from which they come.
