Why we Bless the Graves:

The Church always seeks to help the faithful departed by earnest prayer to God. In the communion of the saints, the communion of Christ’s members with one another, the Church obtains spiritual help for those who have preceded us in faith. This spiritual communion brings the consolation of hope to us who remember with gratitude, love and devotion those who have gone before us in faith. It is in this spirit that we commemorate our faithful departed and entrust them once again to the purifying and life giving love of the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. Together as a parish we offer our prayers for the faithful departed as a petition grounded in the certainty of hope, with gratitude and with a renewed faith.
