Edmonton Archbishop Richard Smith will offer Mass for all victims of the COVID-19 pandemic on Nov. 2.
The 5:30 p.m. Mass will be livestreamed from St. Joseph’s Basilica. The requiem Mass will be celebrated with current COVID-19 protocols and livestreamed for those who are unable to attend in person. Archbishop Smith said it’s an opportunity to come together as a Catholic community to remember everyone who has died, especially as a result of COVID.
All Souls’ Day is when Catholics gather as a community and Mass is offered for the dead, especially those lost in the past year.
The celebration will be viewable via:
