Sunday 9th November
The Feast of Dedication on the Lateran Basilica
Solemn Requiem Mass for the War Dead at St Pius X 10.30am
Celebrant & Preacher Fr. Jeff Woolnough
Remembrance Sunday falls on the Sunday nearest Armistice Day, 11 November, which marks the end of the First World War. On this day we remember all those who gave their lives for their country, all who suffered and died through acts of war and those who were left behind to grieve and mourn.
In England and Wales our Bishops conference has permitted that one Mass for the Dead may be celebrated on this Sunday. At St. Peter’s Eastwood, this celebration will take place at the 10am, the sung mass of the day and at Hockley 10:30am. We will remember them.
Let us pray For peace and reconciliation between nations; that enemies may put aside all differences. For all those who have died through war or acts of violence; may we never forget their sacrifice.
O God, merciful and strong,
who crush wars and cast down the proud,
be pleased to banish violence swiftly from our midst
and to wipe away all tears,
so that we may all truly deserve to be called your children.. Roman Missal
May our Lord, the Prince of Peace reign on earth and in the hearts of all.
Every blessing on this solemn day.
Your priest and friend,
