A Special Welcome to Our Mass of Remembrance:
Every year during November the parish community prays a Mass in which we remember all our loved ones who have died since this time last year. The mass takes place this weekend and we would like to extend Cead Mile Failte to all family members who are here to remember a loved from their family who has died during the year. We hope this special occasion will bring you comfort and the assurance of our prayerful solidarity in your loss. Refreshments will be served after mass, please do join us in the Day Chapel.
