All Souls Day in St. Augustine

Sunday there will be several events to celebrate All Souls Day at our historic cemeteries:

  • The Memorial Presbyterian Church continues a tradition from the 1950s and 1960s with a procession from the church to the Huguenot Cemetery following the 11:00 service. Upon arrival at the cemetery, there will be a short service. All are welcome to join the procession.
  • Tolomato Cemetery on North Cordova Street – the historic Catholic cemetery – will be open for guided tours from 3:00 to 4:30 Sunday afternoon with a candlelight Evening Prayer beginning at 4:30. All are invited to participate.
  • San Lorenzo Cemetery, which replaced Tolomato in the 1880s, will host an All Souls Mass at 10:00 Sunday morning. Bishop Victor Galeone will celebrate the mass which will be held in front of the cemetery under a tent.
