Undas Online Is Now Accepting Prayer Requests

Offer prayers for your departed loved ones through this online platform!

If you’re wondering how to commemorate Undas this year, you might want to check out Undas Online.

With the closure of cemeteries, memorial parks, and columbaria across the country on All Saints’ Day and All Souls’ Day, the website is now online to accept prayer requests from the faithful across the country. (Read: 3 Ways to Observe Undas Amid Quarantine Restrictions)

Originally intended for Filipino seafarers and those in other countries who cannot go home to celebrate their dearly departed, Undas Online has been revived by the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) to enable more Filipinos to request prayers for their departed loved ones amid the pandemic.

Undas Online

As it will be used by more people now, Undas Online—which was initially just an online facility to request Masses for the dearly departed—has been improved with added features.

To have a more virtual experience in observing Undas, online Masses will be streamed live from different places. “One can even light a candle online while praying for their dear departed,” said Msgr. Pedro Quitorio, CBCP Media Office Director. (Read: 4 Spiritual Prayers for Dead Loved Ones)

The website also has an audio and video reflection and catechesis on All Saints’ Day and All Souls’ Day.

Mass Celebrations

Bishop Broderick Pabillo encouraged the faithful to go to Mass in observing Undas. He says more Masses will be held in churches to safely accommodate churchgoers and to practice social distancing. (Read: Catholic Church to Implement Contact Tracing in Parishes)

“On November 1 and 2, all are encouraged to go to Church and offer Mass for our beloved dead. The Holy Eucharist is the best prayer that we can offer,” Pabillo said.
