The Feast of the Assumption of Our Lady
This Monday, 15 August Masses at 10am and 7. 30pm
The Feast of the Assumption is a day of special Commemoration of Our Lady. Yes, it is a Holy Day of Obligation but also an important day for calling on Our Lady’s help for difficulties and challenges in our lives. It can be a day of Petition to her to strengthen us and through her Motherhood to mediate grace to us.
Unfortunately there have been a few instances of cars driving on the grass to access graves in the cemetery, especially on wet days. This is unacceptable and has marked the grass and made some dents in the lawns. It should end immediately. There is sufficient access for cars along the right hand hedge and a turning area at the bottom. It is entirely appropriate to ask for respect for the Chapel grounds and in particular those of the Cemetery.
