Cemetery Sunday

“Cemetery Sunday” devotions will take place this year on Sun., Oct. 31, beginning at 1pm in Sacred Heart Church.  We will begin with the Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament and the praying of the Sorrowful Mysteries of the Rosary.   After Solemn Benediction and Reposition, a procession will form to the cemetery while the faithful sing the Litany of the Saints.  The faithful who cannot walk in the procession may drive to the cemetery.  Father will then bless the cemetery and visitation of the graves by the faithful will follow.  Traditional Polish, Latin and English hymns will be sung.  Please join us in praying for the peaceful repose of the souls of all the faithful departed.
