During this very special parish celebration we prayerfully remember all our deceased parishioners and all whose funerals were celebrated in St. Mary’s and St. Richard’s during the past twelve months. (November 2017 to October 2018). After Mass light refreshments will be served in St. Mary’s Centre. We also devote the month of November to remembering all who have died.
