Visiting a cemetery on All Souls

In Paul Turner's Blog by Paul Turner

Q:  I went to St. Meinrad as a Theology Student. The monks would do various night vespers and candlelight processions to the cemetery on All Souls Day. Do you have any suggestions or resources for something at the cemetery? We have a Parish Cemetery here, and I thought something for All Souls would be something we could try.


A:  Check out chapter 57 of the Book of Blessings for an Order of Visiting a Cemetery on All Souls Day.

Those who visit a cemetery on All Souls and recite an Our Father and the Creed may gain a plenary indulgence under the usual conditions.
