Saints And Souls At The College Of The Holy Cross In 1898

All Saints' Day was fittingly observed at the college.

In the morning Solemn High Mass was celebrated, with Father Casey, S. J., officiating as celebrant, Father Keveney, S. J., as deacon, and Mr. Becker, S. J., as sub-deacon. During the Mass the choir discoursed beautiful music. In the evening Vespers were sung, and the service concluded with Benediction of the Most Blessed Sacrament.

On the morning of All Souls' All Souls' Day,

the students assembled in the chapel, where the Office of the Dead was chanted. After the Office of the Dead, Mass was celebrated by Father Rector. During the rest of the morning there was no class, and the students enjoyed themselves in various ways.
