Sodality of the Holy Souls 

A community committed to pray at wakes and funeral masses for God's love and mercy on the deceased and to comfort the bereaved family and loved ones.

Why do we pray for Holy Souls in purgatory?

All who die in God's grace and friendship, but still imperfectly purified, are indeed assured of their eternal salvation; but after death they undergo purification, so as to achieve the holiness necessary to enter the joy of heaven. The Church gives the name “purgatory” to this final purification of the elect. (CCC 1030-1031)

Prayer is one of the most powerful ways we can support others. United in prayer, we entrust our deceased brothers and sisters into God's care.

If you feel called to serve in our Parish in this spiritual work of mercy, we invite you to join us.

The Saints teach us to pray for the Holy Souls

St. Maria Faustina Kowalska: “I saw my guardian angel, who ordered me to follow him. In a moment I was in a misty place full of fire in which there was a great crowd of suffering souls. They were praying fervently, but to no avail, for themselves; only we can come to their aid.”

Venerable Archbishop Fulton Sheen: “As we enter heaven, we will see them, so many of them, coming toward us and thanking us. We will ask who they are, and they will say ‘a poor soul you prayed for in purgatory’.”

St. Pio of Pietrelcina: “We must empty purgatory with our prayers.”

St Thomas Aquinas: “the prayers for the dead are most acceptable to God because the dead have need of them and cannot help themselves as the living can.”
