Reverent, traditional, inviting and full of ministries; guided by the Augustinians we offer a beautiful backdrop for all of the sacraments to be received. Residing on a tree covered, and quiet avenue in the Lansingburgh Community of Troy, N.Y. we are a heritage parish that invites you to attend Mass with us. We welcome you.
Devotion to the Holy Souls in Purgatory
“We must say many prayers for the souls of the faithful departed, for one must be so pure to enter heaven.”
-St. John Vianney
St. Nicholas of Tolentino is the Patron Saint of the Holy Souls in Purgatory.
Prayer for the Deceased by Saint Nicholas
Lord, God of holiness and light.
You do not allow
any shadow of darkness
or evil in your sight,
and so in your mercy,
you grant to those
who have left this world
burdened with sin,
a time of purification,
applying to them
the spiritual treasurers
of your holy Church.
Hear my prayer
and through the merits of Christ,
the Blessed Virgin,
and all your faithful people
bring to an end this time of waiting
for our beloved dead,
In your providence,
you have chosen Saint Nicholas
as a special intercessor on behalf of the departed.
Hear also his fervent prayer
for those whom I recommend
to you through his intercession.
