Our Own Dear Departed

It is with sadness that we learned yesterday of the death of Geraldine Lofthouse, a parishioner and member of the choir, who died suddenly and unexpectedly on Friday. Please pray for the repose of her soul, and for comfort for her friends and family.

It is also with sadness that we learned of the recent death of Christine Fisher of our parish, after along period of illness bravely borne.

Of your charity pray for the repose of the souls of the faithful departed, especially for: Joseph Gildea, Michael Fornelli, John Dooley, Eileen Wright, Angela Walmsley-Cotam, Richard Courtney, Raymond Hewitt, Catherine Harwood, Peter Pratt, Freda Precious, William Cowan and Joseph Marcczell whose anniversaries occur about now.

Eternal rest grant to them, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them. May the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.

The parish community as a whole will pray for the departed souls from our parish in the month of November. If you have anyone to be especially remembered, please write his or her name on a piece of paper and place it in the box on the altar. The box will remain on the altar for the whole month of November.


We welcome into our parish family Nicholas Pyke who was baptised on Saturday 21st October, and Emily Zieba who was baptised on Sunday 22nd October.

At 11:30 Sunday 29th October, baby Shauanna Jocye Darke was baptised. We welcome her to the church and to our parish.

Many congratulations to Adam and Elizabeth Conway (nee Long) who celebrated their wedding in church on Saturday 18th November with a Nuptial Mass. Adam and Elizabeth would like to thank all those who helped to prepare the church, took part in the service, helped out with music, singing and flower arranging and generally helped to make the service so special.

Congratulations also to Cesaltina Manancas who celebrated her adult Baptism, confirmation and first Holy Communion at the 10.00am Mass Sunday 19th November.

Please remember them all, their parents, godparents and sponsors in your prayers.
