Beloved Souls Prayer Project

A Time of Remembering

November begins with two days of honoring saints and souls: All Saints’ Day on November 1 and All Souls’ Day on November 2. The St. Gertrude’s community continues the remembering all through the month. Three great banners are hung in the chapel with the names of every sister who has gone before.

“As we remember them, they become present to us,” explains Sister Teresa Jackson. “As we call them to mind, we hold them in God’s love and know that they are enfolded in God’s care. The ones who have gone before are the ‘great cloud of witnesses’ mentioned in Hebrews 12:1…like a stadium full of people cheering us on.”

The sisters would like to also hold in prayer your departed loved ones. Check back on this page in October 2022 in order to send us the name of your loved one.
