The month of November is always a special time for the Sisters of St. Benedict. Each year, during this time, we remember our sisters, family members and friends who are enjoying the promise of eternal life. On November 9th we will host a very special event to remember those who have gone before us.
Our “Celebration of Light” will be held in conjunction with our annual Memorial Mass at St. Paul Hermitage. Mass will be celebrated at 5:00 PM in the chapel at the Hermitage and the Luminary Celebration will take place at the monastery. From 6:30 PM until 8:00 PM, we invite you to Our Lady of Grace Monastery to pray and remember those who are deceased.
There is also an opportunity for you to purchase luminaries in memory of your loved ones. The Luminary Celebration will take place inside the monastery in order to avoid inclement weather. Names of those remembered are displayed via a media presentation throughout the evening. You may purchase a luminary for a donation of $25 or for $100 you may memorialize up to ten people. All proceeds from this celebration benefit the ministry of the sisters at St. Paul Hermitage. Please use the enclosed envelope for your offering and return it to us no later than November 1st.
Thank you for being part of our Luminary Celebration and for your support of our ministries, especially of our care of the aged at St. Paul Hermitage. The sisters join me in promising our prayers for you and for your beloved deceased. May God bless you.
