“November is the month of the dead,” begins Head Chaplain Rev. Joseph Illo in a recent homily , in which he stresses the need to pray for the souls of the faithful departed:
Yesterday we offered Mass at Santa Paula cemetery, with the graves of those we love around us. To the left was Ron McArthur  and Marcus Berquist , just in front of us was Rosie Grimm  and John Blewett , to the right was the beautiful stone cross marking Tom Dillon ’s grave. God gave us the joy of loving these people on earth; now God gives us the joy of praying for their souls in eternity.
