NOVEMBER & CONNECTEDNESS

The month of November reminds us of the Communion of Saints which we profess in the Creed. Catholics are encouraged to visit cemeteries, sacred grounds, especially in November. As you visit either Gate of Heaven or Calvary Cemetery, make it a pilgrimage in honor of Saint Joseph. Both cemeteries are designated as pilgrimage sites

during this Year of Saint Joseph (ending on December 8). For more information on pilgrimages during this special year, click here.



Catholics can get an indulgence for the dead by praying at a cemetery any day this November. This year, the Vatican has decided once again to grant a plenary indulgence to Catholics who visit a cemetery to pray for the dead on any day in the month of November. As you visit a cemetery recite an Our Father and the Creed.
