MADISON -- Bishop Robert C. Morlino will celebrate a special Requiem Mass for deceased priests and bishops of the Diocese of Madison. November is a month when Catholics pray in a special way for the repose of the dead and, by God's will, for the rapid entrance into heaven of the poor souls.

On Monday, Nov. 2, at 7 p.m. at the Bishop O'Connor Center, Bishop Morlino, with clerical and lay ministers, will celebrate a Pontifical Requiem Mass "at the Throne" in the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite.

Because of the ongoing Priests for Our Future campaign, which looks forward, it is appropriate also to remember the many priests who have served the people in the past and have died. Especially to be remembered are those who have died in the last year.

The music for the Mass, under the direction of Aristotle Esguerra, will be Gregorian chant and Tomás Luis de Victoria’s (+1611) Requiem for 4 Voices.

The Mass is sponsored by the Tridentine Mass Society of Madison. For more information, visit
