Many families in the Diocese of Scranton continue to suffer the loss of loved ones who have died as a result of violent or tragic death.  In response, the Diocese of Scranton is offering the annual Mass in remembrance of victims of violent or tragic death; particularly for persons who have died through murder, suicide, or accidental death.  This year we remember in a special way those who lost their battle with COVID-19. The Mass will be a way for family and friends to remember and celebrate the lives of these victims and to stand together surrounded in God’s love.

The Mass of Remembrance will be taking place this year on Thursday, July 15. Due to COVID-19 there will be some changes. The Books of Remembrance will not be available to search for a name but instead will be placed near the altar. There will not be a reception after the mass. There will be a live broadcast on CTV.
