RIP Your prayers are asked for the repose of the soul of Sean Henderson whose Requiem Mass was celebrated in St Bride’s church last Thursday. May his soul and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.
SECOND COLLECTION This weekend in aid of Aged & Infirmed Clergy. Special Gift Aid envelopes are available for those who pay income tax. This fund is used to support 24 retired priests of the Archdiocese. Our priests retire at age 75, so they work longer than most other occupations. We all have a joint commitment to support them as they reach old age and are no longer supported by an individual parish. Please pray for our retired priests, who have served us well and be as generous as you can.
RECLAMATION OF UNUSED BURIAL LAIRS in Mount Vernon Cemetery. If you think you are affected please see notices at the back of our churches.
