All Souls Day is a time when the Church commemorates all the faithful departed. November is also a special time in which Dehonians celebrate the lives of those who have gone before us, culminating with November 26, SCJ Memorial Day. We begin the month with a reflection on Fr. Bill DeWitte, SCJ, (1914-1994) a missionary, and later a member of the Canadian Region. It was written by Fr. Peter McKenna, SCJ, who was with Fr. Bill when he died.
