New Orleans Parish Forms Purgatorial Society
Father Stanley Klores, S.T.D., Pastor of St. Patrick’s Church in New Orleans, has announced the formation of a parish purgatorial society. The society’s purpose is to bring together lay people, clergy, and religious to pray for the poor souls in purgatory. A monthly sung Requiem Mass (1962 missal) will be offered for this intention each second Tuesday of the month at 7:00 PM, at the historic New Orleans church of St. John the Baptist, now a part of St. Patrick’s parish.
Although the society is being formed within the parish community, the Mass will be open to all who wish to attend. Enrollment in the society is not limited to the parish; all may send in the names of the departed.
For more information, please call the parish rectory at (504) 525-4413.
