Book of the Names of the Dead

- Procession of Souls by Louis Welden Hawkins

After my mother died a few years ago, one of the things I did which made me feel better was to place her name in Creighton University's page, the online Book of the Dead .....

The Church has a long tradition of remembering those who have died, to the love and mercy of God. We do this in a special way on the Feast of All Souls Day, and throughout November. In many churches around the world, there is a Book of the Names of the Dead, as a continuing reminder of our prayer. We offer this online Book of the Names of the Dead, so that we might be in solidarity around the world in prayer for our loved ones.
