Please join us for a Gregorian Requiem for the soul of Linda Stirpe, a fine Catholic lady whose life touched those of many in the diocese. Linda, who passed away last month after piously sustaining long suffering, expressly requested that prayers should be said on her behalf. The traditional Latin Requiem, with its strong, conflicting emotions dissolving in God's eternal peace, is most befitting to this purpose.
