November - the Month of the Holy Souls in Purgatory - is just a few days away, so I'm readying for our week of praying for all souls at local cemeteries and continuing our tradition of praying daily for the dearly departed during our rosary time and whenever we pass a cemetery while driving.
As part of my preparations, I have created a set of simple copywork pages of the Eternal Rest prayer in both English and Latin, using "him", "her", "them", and their Latin equivalents in printing and in cursive on different sheets, so children can choose the version mot appropriate for themselves. I've shared this FREE printable Eternal Rest Copywork Set with you here.
We will likely also recopy and laminate our St. Gertrude Prayer Copywork, since I neglected to pop our copies in our faith binders last year and now cannot find them. If you'd like this copywork as well, you'll find print and cursive options in English only here.

Please join us in praying for the dearly departed this coming month, and, if you have a particular soul you'd like us to pray for, please comment with his or her name, so we add them to our prayer list. Thank you.
