During this month we will especially remember all those whose names have been placed in the box that you will see has been placed in front of the altar.
It is a good and charitable thing to pray for the faithful departed. So do try and join us at the 9.30am weekday Mass during this month of November, as we especially remember all our loved ones who have died.

Eternal rest, grant unto them O Lord and let perpetual light shine upon them.
May they rest in peace. Amen.

Cemetery Mass
The reason that the annual November Mass which is usually celebrated in the Crematorium Chapel is not taking place this year, is because of the work that is presently ongoing in the crematorium, including on Saturdays.

CHRISTMAS CARDS The Piety Stall is open at the back of the church after Mass each weekend, and has a good selection of Christmas cards.
So do call into the piety stall after Mass and buy your religious cards which depict the true message of Christmas.
