All Souls Remembrance and Mass on 11/2

On All Souls Day, we remember our deceased loved ones. A public Mass will be said at the church on Monday, November 2 at 12:10 PM, which will begin a novena that the priests of St. Charles Borromeo will offer for the departed.

We invite you to inscribe the names of those you wish for us to remember and pray for on the All Souls Remembrance envelopes found in the back of the Church. You will also be able to submit names and make a remembrance donation online at the following link, https://stcharlesbklyn.weshareonline.org/ws/opportunities/AllSouls2020.
