Lay group to hold ‘Mass of Remembrance’

The Prayer Warriors of the Holy Souls (PWHS) invited the faithful to take part in a “Mass of Remembrance” and related activities to be held on September 8 from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. at the Manila Metropolitan Cathedral in Intramuros.

As a Catholic lay apostolate of the Monfort Foundation, PWHS is committed to promoting the devotion to the holy souls in purgatory, especially on the second Monday of each month.

The prayer intentions for the September holy mass to be presided over by Father Jojo Zerrudo of the Holy Family Parish in Quezon City are the following:

  • Dr. Narciso D. Monfort who died on September 5, 2005. He founded the PWHS on July 29, 1992, and saw to its growth as it became a global apostolate while representing the fourth district of Iloilo for several terms.
  • The 10,000 victims of the cyclone and tidal wave off the Bay of Bengal in Orissa State in India on September 29, 1971.
  • The approximately 8,000 people killed when Hurricane Fifi struck Honduras on September 19, 1974.

  • The 150 people killed when the Sulpicio Lines MV Princess of the Orient sailed from Manila to Cebu during a typhoon. The ship capsized at 12:55 p.m. near Fortune Island off mainland Batangas, and sank on September 18, 1998.
  • The estimated 2,600 people buried alive when a 7.5 magnitude earthquake rocked Taiwan on September 20, 1999.
  • The 200 people killed when typhoon Xangsane (“Milenyo”) ravaged Manila on September 20, 2006.
  • The 334 victims, 186 of whom were children, killed in a hostage standoff in a school in Beslan in Russia on September 3, 2004.
