The month of November is dedicated to the Holy Souls in Purgatory. On all the days from November 1 to November 8 inclusive, a plenary indulgence, applicable only to the Holy Souls, is granted to those who visit a cemetery and pray, even if mentally, for the departed (for the other requirements for gaining an indulgence click here).
Tuesday, November 1st, is the first-class feast of All Saints. It is a holy day of obligation which means all Catholics must attend holy Mass under penalty of mortal sin. Mass will be at 12pm at Resurrection in Ft. Myers and 4pm and 5:15pm at St. Agnes in Naples.
Wednesday, November 2nd, is the first-class feast of All Souls. It is not a holy day of obligation. Mass will be at St. Agnes at 3pm, 4pm, and 5:15pm. This day a priest may celebrate three Masses, hence the three Mass times. A plenary indulgence, applicable only to the Poor Souls, is granted to those who visit any parish church or public oratory and there recite one Our Father and one Credo.
The activities at Royal Palm Academy on November 5th will be a bit different. Fr. Adams will not be around and so there will be no altar server training. Fr. van Zee will teach the adult catechism class at 9am. Choir and Maidens will still meet but with a slightly truncated schedule. All activities will end by 11:00am.
In the Secret of the of the Rosary St. Louis de Montfort said: "Public prayer is far more powerful than private prayer to appease the anger of God and call down His mercy, and Holy Mother Church, guided by the Holy Ghost, has always advocated public prayer in times of public tragedy and suffering."
