Musings from the Parish of St Marie and St Joseph, Bury
Wednesday, 28 November 2012
The Month of November is dedicated to the Holy Souls when we pray for our relatives, friends and benefactors who have died. The names of those who have died are placed near the altar and Mass is offered for them throughought the month of November.
In addition to the prayers and Masses we hold an annual Memorial Service organised by one of our local funeral directors, Bernadette Gibson. At the service the names of those who have died in the last year are read out and there is an opportinity to come forward and light a candle in their memory.
Pictured here is the altar at the beginning of the service.
