SANTA CRUZ – On Sunday, 7 November 2021, the parish of Holy Cross, 210 High Street, will be hosting the 15th Annual Italian Catholic Federation Memorial Mass at 8:30am. The celebrant will be Fr Martin Cain, pastor of Holy Cross.
This Memorial Mass will be offered for all deceased members of the Italian Catholic Federation, Santa Cruz Branch #21, and for the deceased parishioners of the parish of Holy Cross.
“We Remember“, a special Memorial Mass handout, will include all of the names of deceased loved ones, and they will be listed alphabetically on the handout. In addition, a scroll with these names will also be placed on the altar and included in the celebration of all Masses during the month of November, which is traditionally dedicated to the Holy Souls in Purgatory.
