The Association of the Holy Souls’s primary purpose is to have a devotion to and pray for the poor souls in purgatory.

The requirements to join the association are the following:

  1. Register (have your name written down in the Saint Ann Catholic Church, Book of the Holy Souls). You may not register anyone else, only yourself. You can send an email to or call (704)523-4641
  2. Hear Mass once a week (Sunday suffices) for the Holy Souls.
  3. Pray and promote the devotion to the Holy Souls.
  4. Contribute once a year (amount determined by you) to the Mass Fund, to enable the saying of Holy Masses for the Holy Souls. You may give your first offering at the time you enroll.
