Knights of Columbus Council 10567 and ladies Auxiliary members and their families gathered on Monday, November 7, 2016 to remember members of their organization who have passed away during the past 25 years.

The annual Mass of Remembrance is sponsored by Council 10567 and led by Chaplain and Pastor Father Vernon Huguley. During his homily, Father asked those present to share memories of Knights and Ladies who are now deceased and also asked everyone to use the Mass as an opportunity to remember their own loved ones.

At the end of the Mass, the name of each deceased was called out, a bell rung and a candle was lit in their memory.

Bishop Joseph A. Durick 2399 provided an Honor Guard and a reception was held following the Mass.

Council 10567 would like to thank Father Vernon Huguley for offering this special Mass and thanks also to Doris Moody and Ellen Cannon for providing the music.

Prayer for Deceased
Accept this prayer which I offer You, merciful Father, for those who have died, those who have gone before us marked with the sign of faith, and those whose faith in this life was known to You alone. Have mercy on them all and bring them into Your kingdom of peace and light without end where You and Your saints live in the happiness which this world has not known and cannot give. Amen.
