Please pray for the repose of the soul of Peggy Hodgson who died on Thursday.  Peggy was our oldest Parishioner and was commendable in her efforts to get to Mass by often walking in all weathers.  Many years ago, she was involved in the church flower arranging and loved to see fresh flowers in church.  We extend our deepest sympathy to Peggy’s family and friends at this very sad time.  Funeral details to follow.  May she rest in peace.

Tombola: Due to unforeseen circumstances we could not hold our tombola last week, so we have rescheduled to this evening after Mass.  Please come along and support our fundraising efforts.  There’s lots of lovely prizes to win.

Fathers Day tomorrow.  Dear God, thank you for all the fathers and father-figures in this world and for the many ways you use them to lovingly guide others to your heart. We ask that you bless them and give them great joy and peace. May they see you and know you in new ways. Show them how much you love them and care about them.  Many blessings to you all.
