Praying for the deceased in Parish Mission Week in Vietnam


During the parish mission, a day was set for the prayer of the deceased at Bac Ai Parish in the Diocese of Ban Me Thuot on February 28, 2024.

One of the important and emotional rituals for parishioners during Parish Mission Week is the prayer ritual for the faithful who have passed away. The Parish Mission is the time of blessing not only for the living but also for the deceased.

Through this prayer ritual, those who are still alive express their filial piety and remembrance for those who have passed away, including the diocesan Bishops, Parish Priests, Asistant Parish Priests, and other family members such as grandparents, parents, brothers, sisters, children, and grandchildren who have passed away in the Lord.

This ritual usually takes place on the fourth day of the Parish Mission Week. This is one of the rituals that leaves a special mark on parishioners through tears of mourning for the deceased. Thereby helping them continue to remember and pray for their loved ones those who have gone before us to the Heavenly Father.
