Bishops in many dioceses around the world traditionally preside at cemetery services on the feast of All Souls, which is observed Nov. 2.

Pope Francis, the bishop of Rome, marked the day by celebrating Mass in Laurentino Cemetery. Locally, Diocese of Rockville Centre auxiliary bishops led liturgies at the three diocesan cemeteries: Bishop Robert Brennan at Holy Rood, Westbury; Bishop Robert Coyle at Holy Sepulchre, Coram; and Bishop Andrzej Zglejszewski at Queen of All Saints, Central Islip.
