Dear Missionary Friend,
All Souls’ Day is a time for remembrances of those who we have known who are no longer with us. These include countless loved ones, such as spouses, parents, grandparents, brothers, sisters, uncles, aunts, cousins and close friends who have touched our lives deeply and significantly. They also include special acquaintances such as neighbors, teachers, and members of the clergy as well as anyone who had contributed to our social, physical, intellectual and spiritual growth. We think about all those special moments we shared with them. We remember simple loving snapshots of events and our cherished memories with them more poignantly on this All Souls’ Day.
Our co-founder, Mother Boniface Keasey, exemplified her love of neighbor as strong as her love for God through her countless acts of kindness, charity, generosity. She gave to God physically and spiritually in helping those in need. The many works and countless deeds of the Missionary Servants of the Most Blessed Trinity continue today. On this All Souls’ Day, we also remember our recently deceased members of the MSBT family – Sr. Vincent Marie Binder and Sr. Alice Margaret Graves. We were naturally saddened by their departures, but we took comfort in knowing that they were most certainly welcomed into heaven with open arms. For their missionary spirit, their labors of love, and their dedicated service over the years, we know that their presence here on earth had a significant impact on the people that they faithfully served.
We use this solemn occasion to honor and remember our deceased loved ones for All Souls’ Day with the Trinity Treasury Sympathy Enrollment card. The powerful memorial poem, “We Remember Them” is recited during many memorial services of all faiths. Click here to see a preview of the card.
The words remind us of the importance of remembrance – to recall and internalize its meaning. Through the words of the poem, we are powerfully reminded of the notion that our souls live on through those who we love. We honor those whom have parted from us. They live on in our actions and in our own love for others and ourselves. To remember is to do what is necessary—to keep in mind that what we do will have an impact on others’ lives.
We invite you to order additional Trinity Treasury Sympathy Enrollment cards free of charge. Simply click here to request your card or multiple cards. Upon receipt of your enrollments, they will be remembered in the Trinity Treasury and share in a Special Mass offered each month and be remembered daily in the Masses, Rosaries and Eucharistic Adoration at the Motherhouse Chapel and in the Prayers and Good Works of the Missionary Servants or the Most Blessed Trinity.
On All Souls’ Day, as we remember those who have died, and pray for those abandoned and poor souls today, we also remember the living. We need to remember to help and pray for those individuals who are in need, forgotten, and abandoned. We need to reach out to those who feel helpless in our community and desperately require our continued vital missionary support. We rely on your continued generosity and your own missionary spirit to support our work more than ever.

All Souls’ Day is a time for honoring and remembering. I personally thank you in advance for your generosity and for your own personal missionary spirit and support of our work. May God bless you always!
With deep gratitude in the Trinity,
Sister Marie, MSBT
