All Souls Day


To commemorate and respect these souls, priests celebrate extra masses and families pray for their departed loved ones. From her beginning, the Church has honored the memory of the dead and offered prayers in suffrage for them.

Across the globe, people honor their beloved dead in unique and special ways. Our missionaries celebrate a variety of traditions in their communities around the world. From feasts, to memorial speeches, to elaborately designed coffins, to organized crying — everybody mourns the loss of loved ones differently.

Our Church believes that death is not the end. The Catholic faith teaches us that Christ has conquered death, and those who have passed rise in His love. Our hope and faith can be restored in the eternal life we share with the deceased.

As the Church celebrates All Souls Day this November, the whole of the Comboni community gathers in prayer for the departed, who continually inspire us with the wisdom and legacy they leave.

We invite you to join us in prayer this season by filling out the names of those you would like to remember and bless. Your prayers will be placed on our altar throughout November, and your loved ones will be commemorated in a special way by our worldwide community. Although our missionaries speak in many languages, the Lord receives our prayers with the same love that awaits us all at the end of our journey on earth..

Please consider offering a donation to support our mission. No gift is too small, and your generosity will reach out to the world’s poorest and most forgotten people.

From the bottom of our hearts, we thank you for joining our community through prayer and donations. May our prayers give you comfort and may all of our loved ones rejoice in the welcoming arms of God.

In God's Peace,

Fr. Ruffino Ezama, mccj - Mission Director
