Mass for All Souls' Day

This morning at 9:30, Grand Duke Henri and Princess Alexandra attended a mass to honour the deceased members of the Grand Ducal Family. The service was held in the Crypt of the Cathédrale Notre-Dame de Luxembourg and the local cemetery. According to advance information, Prince Jean was also supposed to attend but he cannot be seen in any of the photographs.

Today's service marks an annual tradition for the Grand Ducal Family, in observation of All Souls' Day. All Souls' Day, or The Commemoration of All the Faithful Departed, falls on November 2nd of each year, one day after All Saints' Day.

Photos from last year's mass can be found here. More photos of the day are available at Wort.
