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
Attendance at Funerals - Owing to the Government restrictions on numbers currently in place, numbers attending should be minimised, and capped at 30 people. Guidance states that only the following should attend: members of the deceased person’s household, close family members, and close friends who have been invited by the family, keeping the total to 30.

 We extend our sympathy to the family and friends of the following parishioners:


Olga Oliver whose Requiem Mass will take place at St. Joseph’s on Wednesday, 12th August at 10.00am followed by burial in Belmont Cemetery.


Terri Riddle, whose Requiem Mass will take place at St. Godric’s on Tuesday, 11th August at 10.00am.


Our sympathy goes also to Margaret Harland on the loss of her brother, Richard Crawford
