Parish Birthdays – Happy Birthday to David Hayes & Tina Preston

I wanted to write a note of thanks to all who helped at St.Marys last Sunday. It was a traumatic and very difficult time for all concerned. The family were very grateful for all the efforts that were made to keep Ken alive as it gave time for them to come to the hospital and say their goodbyes. I performed last rites on Ken on Monday morning and he died in the afternoon. There are flowers in the church this morning in memory of Ken which have been kindly donated by Pat. I will let you know any funeral arrangements as soon as I know them. Many thanks. Quintin
