Weekly Requiem Mass

We pray special prayers after the 5:15pm Mass for all those who have died in the last week. Parishioners may submit names to be read aloud. Submissions must be received no later than noon on the day of the requiem to be included that day. Submissions received later than noon on the day of the requiem will be included the following week. This requiem includes all the dead, those who have died this week, prayers for the unborn who have died by abortion, all those unborn who have died due to miscarriage, and any who have suffered death by violence. To request to have a Mass offered for someone, please contact the parish office at (434) 293-8081.

    The St. Vincent Ferrer Columbarium offers a lasting memorial place of rest for burial which is located below the St. Thomas Aquinas Priory Chapel.  The Dominican Friars offer daily prayers for the deceased who are interred in the columbarium, and special remembrance on the day of the burial every year.
