November 2020

Welcome into your Kingdom our departed relatives and friends.

In the cemetery in Kiltegan, many of our missionary priests are buried; others are buried in the mission areas where they worked and died and some are buried in their home places. Here in Kiltegan, there’s just a simple stone cross to mark where they are buried. On the cross is written the name, the date of birth and the date of death. That’s all.  Theirs is a life given to the service of God’s people in other lands. They wouldn’t want it any other way.

 

There is no headstone over the burial place of Jesus. The angel said: He is not here. He has risen. What God did for Jesus he will, also, do for us.  We, too, will rise from the dead. That’s our faith. That’s our hope. That’s what keeps us going when times are difficult.

 

November, as we know, is the month of the Holy Souls. During November, we offer several masses daily for our deceased benefactors and friends.

If you would like to have your deceased family members and friends remembered during November Masses here in Kiltegan:

All names will then be placed on our November “Altar of Friends” as we hold them in prayerful remembrance. In their memory, you may wish to contribute to the work of St Patrick’s missionaries.

 

We know well that this year has been a hard year for many people with the COVID-19 pandemic. May God continue to keep the coronavirus far away from us all.

 

May God grant eternal rest to all your departed loved ones and may the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.

Fr David Walsh SPS

God of the living and the dead,

You brought Jesus back to life.

Raise up the faithful departed,

And let us come with them

Into your heavenly glory.

Amen.

Remembering our deceased in November. Eternal rest grant unto them,

O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them. May the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.

Amen.
