Every year St Edmund’s Parish dedicates one of its Masses to bereaved parishioners, their families and friends. We would like to invite everyone who has arranged a funeral here this year and all those who also wish to remember a deceased family member or friend, to attend the Mass which will be held this year on Saturday 18 November at 10.00am.
After the Homily the names of the deceased will be read out and you are invited to place a lighted candle, which will be provided, in front of the altar. The names of those who have died this year will be read out and all parishioners are invited to request that the names of other deceased family members and friends also be included.
Please contact the Parish Office by 12 noon on Friday 17th November to add a name or names. It would be helpful if rather than phoning you write down the names and put them through the Office letter box or email them to the office.
After the Mass there will be light refreshments in the hall. Please join us there. We look forward to welcoming you on 18 November.
Also, during November we will have a Bereavement Tree in the Church. On the offertory table there will be tags on which you are invited to write the names of those you wish to remember. Please write their name on a tag and leave it in the basket. We will secure it to the tree where it will remain until the end of the month.
