Colin Buckland passed away peacefully at 9am Monday morning after a long illness. Colin’s ashes will be buried in a private family ceremony. There will be a funeral Mass this coming Saturday, 13th June at 11:00 in St Alphonse. In line with health and safety regulations, places in church will be limited; if you would like to attend, please contact the parish office by phone or by email (given the short time available) before Friday lunchtime stating how many seats you would like to reserve. If you are willing to be a welcomer at church for the Mass, please let Nicola know.
Colin was well known in our community for animation of the music group, for his many years teaching in the European school and singing with Intermedi. If you have memories of Colin you would like to share with the family, could you put them in writing and either bring them to the church on Saturday or send them to the parish office, from where they will be passed on to Ann and the family.
Mass will be live streamed on FaceBook, and recorded.
We offer Colin’s family our sincere sympathy, and keep them in our prayers.
