My father's anniversary, tomorrow


#1

Dear all

Tomorrow, 24th June, Feast of St John the Baptist, is the sixth anniversary of my father’s death.

Please could you remember him, Alan, in your prayers?

I have tried to fix up a Mass on the day, but with no success – they seem to get booked up so early these days! If anyone reads this who is a priest, please could you PM me and I shall give you the details and my eternal gratitude!

RIP, my dad.

and at the hour of our death
Amen

Eternal rest grant unto Alan, O Lord. And may Your Perpetual Light shine upon him. May he rest in peace.
