In remembrance of the faithful departed, Bishop Michael C. Barber, SJ, will celebrate Mass at 5:30 p.m. Nov. 1 at the Cathedral of Christ the Light, 2121 Harrison St., Oakland. Rudy de Vos will conduct the Cathedral Choir and Consort in the Requiem by French composer Gabriel Fauré.

Observances of All Souls Day also will include Mass at 11 a.m. Nov. 2 at St. Mary Cemetery in Oakland, St. Joseph Cemetery in San Pablo, Holy Sepulchre Cemetery in Hayward, Holy Cross Cemetery in Antioch and Queen of Heaven Cemetery in Lafayette.

In four of the cemeteries, the three-day vigil of light will be conducted later that day, with a prayer service, lighting of candles and light refreshments. The event begins at 6:30 p.m. in the Masolueum of the Apostles at Holy Sepulchre Cemetery; Holy Cross Cemetery; and Queen of Heaven Cemetery; and at 7 p.m. in the courtyard at St. Joseph Cemetery.

Additionally, the Vigil of Light will begin at 6:30 p.m. Nov. 2 at the mausoleum at the Cathedral of Christ the Light in Oakland.
