Newsletter: Please copy notices to Fr Doug by previous Wednesday
As we enter the month of November, in keeping with our tradition, we will pay respect to those who have gone before us. This weekend at our masses we will recall with solemnity the names of all our parishioners who died during this past year. We offer a warm welcome to relatives and friends who may be here for that reason.
We will also open the pages of our November Book of Remembrance for your prayerful recording of the names of your loved ones. This book will be brought forward to the altar at all our weekend masses.
Details of other services are listed below.
God Bless, Fr Doug
