All Souls' Service and Chaplet for the Dead
Vigil and Chaplet for the Dead service.
Have lights set and worked in a community altar service starting on November 2nd, All Souls' Day. There is some wiggle room and you can join up after the work starts as long as you see that there are still spots left and it doesn't say "sold out."
Along with setting and working lights in the name of your loved one(s), I will perform a prayer cycle including recitation of the Chaplet of the Dead, with appropriate offerings, incense, and other materials and including a photo of your loved one if you have one to send. (Do not give me a link to a URL - you have to upload an actual photo.)
The Chaplet of the Dead is a four-decade rosary that includes prayers such as the De Profundis (Psalm 130) and prayers for the repose of the departed soul and the comfort of the bereaved.
In Catholic tradition, the prayers of the living faithful can benefit the souls of those who are in Purgatory. Once purified, these souls will join the company of heaven. Once a loved one has died, they can no longer engage in works or deeds on their own behalf, but the living can pray for them and dedicate their own works and deeds for their benefit, thus helping them enter the presence of God and the saints.
Even if you don't believe in purgatory in the most literal sense, these prayers and offerings focus on peace and rest of the departed and can serve as comfort for both the dead and their loved ones who are grieving. And it's completely appropriate to perform such a service for ancestors whose names are unknown, as well, or for the souls of the departed who have no one living to pray for them. You can also use this service as an opportunity to thank those departed, known or unknown, whom you've received help or comfort from yourself.
Please note that community altar work services do not come with individual readings/reports, though I will post at least one photo of the work to the Discord "forum" for clients, which you'll receive an invitation to after you book your service spot if you aren't already a member.
