BY THE MONTOUT
ANNIVERSARIES: We remember in prayer Beryl Hill (20/10/11), Noel Mobey (22/10/14), Thomas Smith (24/10/86), Margaret Randall (24/10/93), Amy Fonceca
(24/10/00) and Ian Cornwall (26/10/17). May the souls of the departed rest in peace. We pray for the repose of the soul of our beloved Fr Michael who died peacefully on the morning of
12th October. We extend our sympathy to his sister Mary, his family and friends and of course his parish family. Eternal rest grant unto Fr Michael O Lord and let perpetual light shine
upon him. May he rest in peace AMEN.
FINAL WORDS FROM FR MICHAEL: Please do come if you are able to:
1) The reception of the coffin into the Church on
30th October at 4.00pm;
2) The Requiem Mass on 31st October at
3) Refreshments at the Church afterwards.
This is at no cost to the Parish as I have saved enough to pay for
it all. What is the dress code for the funeral? The answer is light and bright! I like flowers. If you wish to bring any, and I hope you will, please bring only a single flower or a small bunch to
place at the foot of the coffin beneath the altar of God. In the future, occasionally, you might glance at my cherished picture of St Michael and remember me in your prayers before Our Blessed Lord
and his Holy Mother.
FROM THE PARISH COUNCIL:
There will be no parking available in the car park on either day except for Fr Michael’s family, Bishop
Declan and clergy. Please use ASDA car park or Shaw Ridge Leisure Complex. If you are disabled and are coming by car please contact Terry Dixon on 07913444064 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
FROM SUZANNE BULLIMORE: Fr Michael wanted as many people as possible to be involved in singing at his funeral. In preparation for his Requiem Mass, there will
be two practices on: Sunday October 27th (after 10.00am Mass), and Tuesday October 29th at 7.00pm. Everybody is welcome.
OFFERTORY: Last weekend’s loose collection will be announced in next week’s newsletter due to unforeseen circumstances. This weekend there is a
second collection for World Mission Sunday the amount of which will be added to St Peter’s red box Missio annual return for 2019. Please be generous in this Extraordinary Month of
EXTRAORDINARY MONTH OF MISSION:
Please say the following prayer each day during October. God our Father, when your Son Jesus Christ
rose from the dead, he commissioned his followers to “go and make disciples of all nations.” Through our Baptism you send us out to continue this mission among all peoples. Empower us by the gifts of
the Holy Spirit to be courageous and enthusiastic in bearing witness to the Gospel, so that the mission entrusted to us, which is still far from completion, may bring life and light to the world. May
all peoples experience the saving love and generous mercy of Jesus Christ, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever AMEN.
