November Remembrance Weekend

Our 7pm Mass on Sat. Nov. 2nd will remember in a special way those who have died from the parish over the past 12 months. During this Mass 2 people representing each family who have lost - a mother or father, a spouse or partner, a son or daughter, a brother or sister will be invited to carry a  candle and a flower to the altar to honour the memory of the one who has died. To ensure that - what is a very sensitive and emotional occasion runs smoothly - we ask that if you have lost a very close family member recently - that you leave your name in the sacristy after Mass or in the Parish Office by Thurs. Oct. 31st. Those taking part in this Procession to the altar to be in the Church no later than 6.45pm please.
