High school aged teenagers from Bucks County are invited to attend a night time cemetery walk Thursday, Oct. 24 at 7 p.m. at Our Lady of Grace Cemetery in Penndel. The group, led by Father James DeGrassa of Our Lady of Grace Parish, will gather at the back gate of the cemetery and with lanterns and candles will walk through the hallowed ground of the cemetery.
Teens will stop at different stations of the cemetery and hear Catholic teachings on the history of Halloween, why we bury the dead, demons and angels and ghosts, and why people pray for the dead. The group will stop at the tomb of the lost infants and pray for all the little ones who have died. It will also stop at the tomb of the unknown soldier and pray for the United States.
The solemn walk will end with a short prayer service at the crucifix for all departed loved ones.
The walk will conclude with music under the cemetery tents filled with homemade Halloween snacks.
All high school teens are invited to this free event.
