In the Catholic tradition, November is traditionally a month of remembrance of the dead. The month begins with the Solemnity of All Saints on 1 November and the Commemoration of the All the Faithful Departed (All Souls’ Day), on 2 November. While no longer holy days of obligation in Australia, the Church has consistently encouraged prayers for the faithful departed and, in the early years, a list of the names of the dead was placed in the church so that the community would remember them in prayer.

“November is a special time to pray for the dead. A plenary indulgence may be gained for the dead, once only, by visiting a church on 2 November and praying the Lord’s Prayer and the Creed. Three conditions are required for gaining the indulgence: sacramental confession, eucharistic communion, and prayer for the pope’s intentions”. (Norms 15,7)

Archbishop Peter grants locally plenary indulgence to be transferred to Sunday (7th Nov.).

However, we have two Masses on All Souls day.
