Upcoming  Funerals within the Parish

Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them. May they rest in peace. Amen.

Upcoming Funerals

Owing to the impact of the coronavirus, the Bishops' Conference has advised that there will be no gathering for public acts of worship in our churches with effect from Friday evening, 20th March, and therefore no funerals will be taking place in any church.
The funeral of Cara Armstrong McKay will now take place at the Crematorium on Monday 23rd March at 2.30pm, but because of a restriction on numbers put in place by the Crematorium authorities, this will be a private funeral.
The funeral of the late Sharon Minns scheduled for St. Joseph's on Wednesday, 25th March at 10.30am has also been moved to the Crematorium, and again, will be a private funeral.
