Broadford Cemetery Trust has invited Broadford Christian Churches ministers to host a gathering to mark All Souls’ Day on November 2.

A short service at 5.30pm at Broadford Cemetery in Piper Street will honour people who died in the past year.

The service will include a reading of the names of those who have been interred in the cemetery in the past year, and blessing of the graves will be followed by light refreshments.

All people are welcome, regardless of faith or if they are atheist or agnostic.

Father Andre Du Plooy from the Anglican Church, Father Prakash Cutinha of the Catholic Church, and Reverend Len Sherratt of the Uniting Church will join together to host the service.

“We held this service last year and invited all Christian ministers this year as it was a lovely way of remembering our dead and for people to come visit their loved ones,” Fr Prakash said.

“The blessing is a lovely opportunity for us to come together to remember our Broadford residents who are buried here,” Rev Len said.

“Reading the names out aloud is a very meaningful way to remember as we light a candle each,” Fr Andre said.
