The Mount Saint Mary College community honored deceased family and friends during a procession to Founders Chapel following the All Saints Day Mass on November 1. 

The community also venerated relics of saints, including St. Luke and St. Thomas Aquinas, and lit candles before framed photos of deceased loved ones in their memory. 

Fr. Gregoire Fluet, director of Campus Ministry and chaplain at the college, offered the Mass in memory of the victims of the attack in Manhattan earlier this week.
