Our 6th Annual Mass at the Cemetery...

... on the feast of All Souls!


  1. Thank you for the beautiful posting! You are blessed to have such a wonderful parish community.
    How do you encourage your girls to wear a veil? Mine are so stubborn about even the thought of it crossing their heads:( Even with the example of a big sister and myself, as well as all the other girls in the congregation. Any thoughts of encouragement would be great!
    Blessings from the far tip of the Northwest,

  2. I LOVE the picture of your altar boys! Their expressions are priceless. That's one to enlarge and frame!

  3. Kathleen ~ We are very blessed to have this wonderful retired priest in our area, who helps make living in a liberal state/diocese bearable! :)

    I don't know what to tell you in regards to encouraging your girls to wear veils... My girls have worn them ever since they were very young and they have never complained, even though they and I are usually the only ones - other than a few of the older women at some of the Masses we attend - that wear veils. It isn't at all common here... Rose recently insisted on wearing one as well, without any prompting from me. :)

    Pam ~ I loved that picture too!! A very dear priest who recently spent a couple months in our area just left the following Facebook comment on this picture saying:

    Priceless! Keep this photo for when they grow up. It will be a reminder to always cultivate this faith with the heart of child. But look at their faces. Such infused wisdom even at this tender age. Their faces are those of men looking upon God.

    I sure love my little altar boys! ♥

  4. Gorgeous pictures, Jessica. Is the baby's scarf handmade? It is darling. I have veils for the girls, but I love this little scarf for the really little ones!

  5. Back here to ask where you got all the scarves, I guess. I like the white for the little girls. I only have black.

  6. Anonymous ~ Yes, the crocheted veil that Rose is wearing was a gift from a friend, handmade by her mother-in-law. Isn't it beautiful?! You can find the pattern here.

    The one that my middle daughter is wearing is from Modesty Veils, called the Girl's Kerchief Tie Veil.

    My oldest daughter is wearing a veil that I purchased years ago from a Spanish Lace shop. I had gotten myself a black one as well and was so so sad when I lost it since it was my favorite.

    Hope that helps!
