PHOTOS: St. Peter Interparish School students visit a cemetery on All Souls Day

St. Peter Cemetery, Jefferson City, Nov. 2, 2020


The eighth-graders of St. Peter Interparish School in Jefferson City walk to visit St. Peter Cemetery, about a mile away from school, on Nov. 2, All Souls Day. Father Jeremy Secrist led the students and several teachers in praying the Rosary along the way. As they gathered around the burial place of Monsignor Joseph Selinger, who was pastor St. Peter parish from 1904-38, Fr. Secrist talked to them about the Communion of Saints and of the need to remember and pray for those who had lived and died before them. The students then spent some time quietly exploring the cemetery, including the burial places of relatives and ancestors to some, before heading back to school. (63 photos)
