November is the month when we remember those members of our families and parish who have died and we pray especially for them.
- The Book of Remembrance is at the back of the Church into which you can add the names of any people you wish to be remembered and who have died in the past year. If you have put names in in previous years there is no need to repeat the entry.
- The annual November Mass for the repose of the souls of all deceased parishioners, friends and families will take place on Sunday 25th at 3.00 p.m. in the Church. All are welcome to come and take part and please feel free to invite relatives and friends of parishioners who have died who may live in other parishes.
With every best wish and blessing
to you, your families and those
who are dear to you.
We pray that the prayers of all the saints will bring us your forgiveness and love.
We praise you O God and honour all your holy ones.
We ask the help of those men, women and children who struggled against evil and
who loved and served one another,
who worked for justice and peace,
who healed the sick and fed the hungry,
who preached the Good News in season and out of season,
who suffered and died for you.
Make us and all those we love worthy to be called your saints.
Grant unto them
Let perpetual light
shine upon them.
May they rest in peace.
