As always, we wish to thank all of our readers who sent in these photos of liturgies celebrated on the Feast of All Saints and the Commemoration of All the Faithful Departed. There are a number of submissions from churches we have never featured before, a Pontifical Mass, and also, (for the first time, I believe,) images of Vespers of the Dead.

St Monica Catholic Church – Mishawaka, Indiana

This photo only looks like it came from a copy of Life magazine ca. 1955. The magic of filters!

Santissima Trinità dei Pellegrini – Rome (F.S.S.P.)

Church of St Agnes – St Paul, Minnesota

Every year, the Twin Cities Catholic Chorale sings the full Requiem Mass of Mozart on All Souls’ Day at the famous church of St Agnes. (I normally put photos in order, but this shot from the choir loft, with the score in the foreground, is, I think, particularly well done, and deserves to be highlighted.)

Our Lady of the Assumption and St Gregory – London

Vespers of the Dead, with alternate verses of the psalms and Magnificat in faux-bourdon settings by Viadana and Palestrina, by Cantus Magnus, conducted by Matthew Schellhorn. (Courtesy of Dr Joseph Shaw of the Latin Mass Society, from his blog LMS Chairman.)

Bishop O’Connor Center – Madison, Wisconsin

Pontifical Mass Requiem Mass celebrated by His Excellency Bishop Robert Morlino, for all of the deceased clergy of the diocese of Madison. (Note the bishop’s and priest’s biretta on the catafalque!)

Holy Rosary Cathedral – Vancouver, British Columbia

Altar decorated with relics for veneration bu the faithful on All Saints’ Day

Our Lady of Mount Carmel Pontifical Shrine – New York City

St Louis Church – Tallahassee, Florida

Brick Chapel – St Mary’s City, Maryland

This is a recreation of the very first chapel built in one of the first Catholic colonial settlements in Maryland. The choir sang Victoria’s six-part Missa pro defunctis.

Sacred Heart – Clifton, New Jersey
This is actually the OF, done right!

St Mary’s Church – Norwalk, Connecticut
