St. Ann’s Bereavement Group
This is a group of 6/8 people who are available to support parishioners of St. Ann’s parish who may be suffering a recent bereavement or a bereavement that has not improved over time.
One of the main functions of the Group is to organise an annual Memorial Mass on All Souls Day - 2nd November. An invitation is issued to all parishioners via the Newsletter. We also send a personalised letter to the families of all those up have died in the previous year and their funeral has taken place in St. Ann’s church. During the Mass there is an opportunity to light a candle for deceased family and friends.
All enquiries regarding the group, the Memorial Mass or for individual support contact Shelagh Lochery 0161 486 9290 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
O sweet mother Mary,
who knew the sadness of mourning those your heart loved most,
Jesus, your Son,
and Joseph, your devoted spouse,
pray for us in our time of loss.
