NOVEMBER MEMORIAL MASSES

FOR ST ANTHONY'S AND RESURRECTION


In grief, rituals play an important part in the healing process. Rituals provide order and meaning in our feelings of grief. They speak to our hearts, help us express our emotions and bring us comfort. Spiritual rituals, in particular, can bring unity and connection into our lives by helping us connect to a higher purpose or larger goal and can bring new meaning and purpose to our lives.


When we participate in sacred ritual as community, not only does it validate our grief but it provides us with a collective honouring of someone we love deeply. We also know we are not alone and are reminded that others have also experienced grief and uncertainty and they have carried on and lived meaningful lives. The heart of our grieving is about our love, our remembering and, ultimately, to find our way to live with our loss.


During November our Parishes of St. Anthony's and Resurrection place special significance on rituals that honour the memories of our loved family members and friends. We have our Parish Book of Remembrance which is displayed prominently on the sanctuary and at the beginning of Mass a member of our community is invited to light the Paschal candle which reminds us of Easter and Jesus' death and resurrection and our own journey from darkness into light .


In the final week of November we hold our Memorial Masses for both parishes. All those families who have lost a loved one during the year and whose funerals were celebrated in our parishes are invited to attend to honour and commemorate their loved one. We also welcome anyone who wishes to pray for and remember loved ones who have died. This Mass is a beautiful ritual that honours both our own grief and those we are remembering.


Resurrection's Memorial Mass is on Tuesday 29th November at 7.00 pm and St Anthony's is Wednesday 30th November at 7.00 pm.


Hope the week is kind to you

Maria, Brian, Neil & Vicki



NOVEMBER MONTH OF REMEMBRANCE

This year at St Anthony's we are creating a new book to honour the names of our loved ones who have died. This will become a permanent November book for our Church. We are now asking for each Parishioner to please include the name and month of your loved one/s who have died.

Please fill in our new November form at each door of our Church, or fill in the electronic form with the link below.

As we will be receiving many names, we need them at your earliest convenience. This will be a big task getting this new book ready before November. Please start submitting your loved ones to us now. Thank You.
