The Mass for Deceased Members has a long history in our organization. On Saturday March 9, 1963 a Mass was held in memory of Past President John Loye in Our Lady's Chapel of St. Patrick's Church.
Memorial Masses for deceased members were held on February 27, 1966 at Saint Patrick’s Church and on February 22, 1970 in Our Lady's Chapel of St. Patrick's Church.
For many years members Malcolm and Edythe Mackenzie and friends from Saint Dominic’s Parish organized and hosted the Memorial Mass. Following Mr. Mackenzie’s death the Memorial Mass was held at Saint Gabriel’s Church and, more recently, at Saint John Brebeuf Church.
The United Irish Societies of Montreal remembers the members who have gone to their eternal reward. The inscription on the memorial plaque reads:
In Memory of our deceased members
"Eternal rest grant to them O Lord and let perpetual light shine upon them"
