Cemetery Liturgy


JUNE 2021

Re:   2021 Annual Cemetery Liturgy Services

Due to the public health restrictions in place to control the spread of the Covid 19 Virus,  families are advised that the annual liturgy services in all Roman Catholic cemeteries in  the Archdiocese of St. John’s will not be held this year. 

We apologize for any inconvenience or disappointment this may cause.

As individual cemetery services cannot take place this summer,

The Sunday Mass televised on NTV

10:30 a.m. Sunday July 18, 2021

 will be offered for the intentions of all the deceased
of the Archdiocese

A special live-streamed Mass at the Basilica

7:00 p.m. on Tuesday July 20, 2021

will be celebrated in memory of all the deceased

  People wishing to attend this Mass are asked to please register by phone at
  709-754-2170 or by email at basilica@rcsj.org.  People may also participate
  virtually and spiritually either via live stream on the Basilica Heritage Foundation
  website www.thebasilica.net or the Basilica Parish website www.thebasilica.ca
  or by viewing the celebration when it is posted on the Archdiocesan website   

    Yours in the Risen Lord,

    + Peter Hundt

Pray for the Dead

Please pray for those who have died in Christ and are buried in the cemeteries within the Archdiocese of St. John’s:

Our sisters and brothers have gone to their rest in the peace of Christ. May the Lord now welcome them to the table of God’s children in heaven. With faith and hope in eternal life, let us assist them with our prayers.

Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord.

May they rest in peace.

May their souls and the souls of all the faithful departed,

Through the mercy of God, rest in peace.
