November - the Month of Holy Souls

Every month a Requiem Mass is celebrated At Our Lady and S. Francis, Rochester, but during November and especially on All Souls' Day it has a special poignancy as we pray for the many names on our Chantry list and for those who lie around us in the military cemetery in which our church is situated.

The annual service of prayers, re-hallowing and sprinkling of those graves we had been requested to visit in the cemetery took place on Sunday 4 November, and on Armistice Day, the following Sunday, we held our usual Act of Remembrance. On both occasions Mr Derek Lane played the trumpet for the Last Post and, after the silence, the Rouse. We appreciate his talents.
