Parish Purgatorial Society

In the past, you have been invited on All Souls Day to become a Purgatorial society. Broadly speaking, a purgatorial society is any association of Catholics and Christians who work together to assist the poor souls in Purgatory. Throughout the year, devotional prayers for the dead, Masses for their souls, and other acts of charity, are offered to God in an attempt to receive indulgences for the dead.  Through this good and holy work our whole purpose is to ask God to reduce their time in Purgatory and hasten their entrance into Heaven.

Many, including parishes throughout the Diocese have begun to revive purgatorial societies. If you wish to join the society, simply complete the form below. Throughout the month of November your intentions are collected and the names of those you enrolled in the purgatorial society are placed under the Altar of Sacrifice.

All intentions are accepted with or without a donation. However, if you would like to make a contribution to the Church that too would be greatly appreciated.  Please look to the bulletin each month throughout 2018 and 2019 for special Mass intentions for those enrolled in our parish purgatorial society.  Please plan to join us on All Saints and All Souls days; together as good and faithful Catholics let us make the effort to pray to the Lord through His Saints, making a true and loving sacrifice and effort for both the living and the dead.

In Christ the Lord,

Father Noesen
