On Monday, October 31, at 7:30 p.m., the Dominican House of Studies will host the 2016 Vigil of All Saints, with the theme “Mirrors of Mercy” fitting for this Extraordinary Jubilee Year, and will show how saints reflect God’s mercy to the world through readings about the saints, the Office of Compline (sung Night Prayer), a procession to the House Reliquary, and a chanted Litany of the Saints. Confessions will be available throughout the evening and a reception will follow. Click here for more information on the history of the vigil and what to expect.
