WELCOME INTO YOUR KINGDOM

The list of names will be placed at the altar and remembered at masses throughout the month. Any offerings that are put in the ‘holy souls’ collection box in the wall at the back of the church go towards Masses throughout the year or is given to other Priest’s to say Masses for the Holy Souls on the missions.
