Due to ongoing Covid-19 restrictions there will not be a public blessing of the graves in St. Mochonog’s, St. Patrick’s, St. Kevin’s and Killegar Church cemeteries this year
In lieu a private pre-recorded service composed of prayers, poetry, music and video footage of our Parish Priests privately blessing the graves in all cemeteries took place.
Cemetery Sunday will be marked on Sunday August 29th with prayers for the departed at morning masses in St. Mochonog’s (10am) and St. Mary’s(11am) Churches respectively.
Families always do a wonderful job of preparing their loved ones’ graves, and no doubt this will be the case too this year. Preparing a grave each year is a tangible way of remembering our loved ones who have departed ahead of us, and a real act of love and care.
We need your support to continue to look after our beautiful and peaceful graveyards. This year we are asking for your support by donating online. If you would like to make a donation for the general upkeep of our cemeteries through the parish website please do so through the link below. Thank You
Those we love don’t go away,
They walk beside us every day,
Unseen, Unheard, but always near,
Still loved, still missed and very dear.
