November - Month of Remembrance PDF Print E-mail

26 October 2014: Thirtieth Sunday in Ordinary Time

You shall love the Lord your God and your neighbour as yourself

Remembering our loved ones during NovemberNovember is the time in the Church’s year when we especially remember and pray for loved ones who have died. This year, our Parish will be acknowledging this special time in two ways:

  1. Remembrance Crosses

    On each weekend during November, coloured cardboard crosses will be placed at the entrances of both Churches (St Ignatius and St James).  Parishioners will be invited to write the name(s) of loved ones on a cross. The names may be written in the language with which you are most familiar. The crosses will be placed in a bowl and taken up as part of the Offertory Procession at Mass. Subsequently, the named crosses will be displayed publicly in each Church as an ongoing invitation to pray for the repose of these souls and all the faithful departed.

  2. Liturgy of Remembrance: Tuesday 11 November 2014, 7:30pm at St Ignatius' Church

    You are invited to attend this liturgy.  As well as remembering loved ones and past Parishioners, this ceremony has an added significance as this year marks the centenary since the outbreak of World War I.

It is hoped that Parishioners will embrace these opportunities to remember the dead and pray for their eternal repose.

Love is a verb

Evangelii Gaudium

“Dialogue is much more than the communication of a truth. It arises from the enjoyment of speaking and it enriches those who express their love for one another through the medium of words.”

Par 142 from Evangelii Gaudium, Pope Francis, Nov. 24, 2013
