Memorial Mass for deceased clergy is Nov. 20 at Our Lady of Peace Cemetery

November is traditionally a month in the Church when Catholics pray in a special way for the faithful departed.

In the spirit of that tradition, a memorial Mass for the deceased archbishops, bishops, priests and deacons of the Archdiocese of Indianapolis will be celebrated at 4 p.m. on Nov. 20 at the chapel of Our Lady of Peace Cemetery, 9001 N. Haverstick Road, in Indianapolis.

Father Gerald Kirkhoff, archdiocesan vicar for priests’ advocacy, will be the principal celebrant for the Mass.

Priests, deacons, friends and relatives of the deceased clergy, and all others are invited to participate in the liturgy.

For more information on the Mass, call 317-236-1589 or 800-382-9836, ext. 1589.
