Praying especially for: Jacques Browne who died recently; Lily Ahern (aunt of Denise Blake) who died recently; Betty Keating who died recently; Susan Plunkett who is seriously ill, and for whom the 11:15 Mass is being offered this week; Doris Wittenberg who died recently; Mick Waldren who died recently; Monika, (sister of Chritel Gerrard) who died recently. May they, and all the faithful departed, rest in peace. May God comfort all those who mourn.
