The Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) has created a website designed to service Filipinos away from the country who would like to seek prayers and requests for masses for their departed loved ones. This is in line with the annual All Saints Day and All Souls Day ritual where Filipinos congregate at cemeteries and columbariums to honor their dead, the tradition known as “Undas.”

The site lists news and resources, prayers, requests for masses (the offering of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass for the repose of souls) and a FAQ page. When one sends a mass request for their departed loved one, the name of the person will be included in the masses that will be celebrated at the CBCP Chapel in Intramuros, Manila, from November 1 to 8, 2011, at 11:30 in the morning.
