In November We Remember 🕯

November is a time for remembering and praying for our loved ones who have gone before us and whose loss we feel. It is a time when we are particularly conscious of those in our parishes who are grieving and all those families who have lost loved ones in the past year.

All pupils decorated a candle with names and symbols representing their loved ones ! A beautiful and poignant display is now at the entrance to the school! 🕯️✨

More than most years, this November will be especially poignant as we remember all those who have died during the pandemic and as a result of war.

We mark this time of year in our parishes with events like the blessing of the graves, the celebration of remembrance services as well as commemorating All Saints’ and All Souls’ Day.

Eternal Rest Prayer

Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them. May their souls and all the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.
