Welcome to the website of the Friends of the Suffering Souls, a Catholic Lay Association conducting a perpetual novena of Masses for the Holy Souls in Purgatory.
This association was inspired by the 100 consecutive Masses offered for the Holy Souls by the Venerable Archdeacon Cavanagh, Parish Priest of Knock prior to the appearance there of Our Blessed Mother in 1879.
Each member undertakes to arrange at least one Mass each year for our deceased members and for all the Holy Souls.
But you can arrange as many Masses as you wish for this novena.
It is our goal to reach an average of 200 Masses for the holy souls each and every day of the year
