Blessed Mary of Providence, Foundress of the Helpers of the Holy SoulsMission


Helpers of the Holy Souls is inspired by Blessed Mary of Providence and the original mission of the Order she founded in 1856, Society of Helpers of the
Holy Souls. Our presence on the web is a combined effort of Brian Bagley and
a more computer-literate colleague and long-time friend, Mike Humphrey.

 

Mike also has managed and maintained his own apologetics web site AskACatholic.com since July 1996 when our Apologetics group was first founded. In all probably it was the very first Catholic Apologetics support group in the New England area, if not, the Eastern Coast.

 

Both Brain and I think the work of praying for the Holy Souls in Purgatory has been overlooked for way too long.

Our mission, one of mercy, is to relieve and gain release for the suffering souls in Purgatory who can no longer help themselves. We do this by monthly donations, collecting loose change and returning redeemable cans and bottles. All funds collected are used to place Holy Masses for all the Holy Souls in Purgatory. 
We also fulfill our mission by holding a Holy Hour for the Holy Souls every Tuesday night immediately following the 7:00pm Holy Sacrifice of the Mass at the Fatima Shrine Chapel on Route 126 in Holliston, MA. All are welcome.
Our Lady, Queen of Purgatory
We share our mission by distributing complimentary Prayer Packs (used at our Holy Hour or privately at one’s convenience) to patrons of the Holy Souls. These Prayer Packs are a gift of the Apostolate and no Mass money collected goes toward their cost. All funds collected are used to place Masses for the Holy Souls.

 

Our primary aim is to have Masses, said by Priests, every day of the year for the Holy Souls. The Patron Saint of our Apostolate is Saint Nicholas of Tolentino; known as one of the great apostles of the Holy Souls in Purgatory. His feast day is September 10th.

 

Our secondary aim is share our apostolate with others who have a desire to replicate what we are doing. They specifically include:

Of course, we place all the efforts of our Apostolate into the Immaculate hands of Our Blessed Mother.

We would like to dedicate this web site to our fathers, Stephen William Humphrey Jr. and Thomas Joseph Bagley in appreciation for the blessings we received from them.
