November is the month of Holy Souls, when the Church invites us to pray for our loved ones, relatives, friends and neighbours who have passed. As we get older, we seem to have more and more in heaven than on earth. We wish to have one more visit, one more conversation, one more laugh and one more embrace.
Once again this year, the Jesuits of Canada are continuing the tradition of inviting friends to share the names of important people in your lives who have ended their earthly journey. These names will be placed in a basket at the altar of Rene Goupil Chapel, located within the Jesuit infirmary. Throughout November, the Jesuits will pray for your loved ones during their daily Eucharist.
We ask that you send a donation and the names of the important people you wish prayers to be said for to firstname.lastname@example.org or contact our Jesuit Office of Advancement directly at 416-481-9154. With your generous donations we are able to support Jesuits in formation and infirmed priests and brothers because without them all their good works would not occur.
Our loved ones, from their place in heaven, ask God to help us in our struggles and provide even more than was humanly possible on earth. We can be one with them in a very intimate and personal way in prayer and in the Eucharist. We sincerely hope that you will join us in the prayerful remembrance of the deceased during November.
The Jesuits are immensely grateful for your continued support and pray for you.
May God Bless you and all the people you love.
Respectfully Yours in Christ,
