Parish News for the 32nd Week in Ordinary Time

November 9, 2023 by James Elston in Weekly News

This Sunday is Remembrance Sunday. In our Solemn Requiem Mass for the war dead we will join with the King, the country and the Commonwealth in praying for the souls of all those who gave their lives in the cause of freedom. During the mass the Act of Remembrance will be accompanied by a trumpeter, as is our custom.  Click here for the readings.
