Annual Mass for the Bereaved

October 6, 2019

The annual Mass for those bereaved will take place on Wednesday, November 13th  at 7.30pm in St. Joseph’s Church Springhill. This Mass is organised by the parish assembly with a lot of help from the parish office and sacristan.

The Mass is offered for all our deceased loved ones, inviting especially those who have died within the previous twelve months in our parish, and for healing for the bereaved who grieve their passing.

During the mass, the names of the parishioners who had died in the previous twelve months are read out. Their families are invited to bring up lighted candles with their loved one’s names on them and place them near the altar. These candles will be available before mass, with extra candles available to anyone who wishes to remember a loved one.

Members of bereaved families will read the Readings, Prayer of the Faithful, and bring up the Offertory gifts and do a reflection.

Everyone is invited back to the parish centre after mass for tea and a chat.
