We ask you to fill them in and return them to the box at the back of the church . All those on the parish list of the dead are prayed for at all Masses in November and on the first Friday of every month.

“I am the resurrection and the life. If anyone believes in me, even though he dies he will live, and whoever believes in me will never die”

“Come to me all you who labour and are overburdened and I will give you rest. Shoulder my yoke and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. Yes, my yoke is easy and my burden light”

“If I should walk in the valley of darkness no evil would I fear, for you are there with me”

“I am the way, the truth and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me”
