Regarding the All Night Vigil
It is a long tradition of our Church (albeit, in recent times, neglected) to read the from the Psalms over a loved one who has reposed in the Lord on the night before his funeral.

This Friday, following the viewing and memorial, Mike Winney’s body will remain in the church until the funeral service on Saturday morning so that we may pray for him through the night.

We are asking for two people to sign up per hour so that they can take turns reading fronm the Psalter. Please place your name in a time slot on the sign up sheet linked below if you are able.

May the Reader Michael’s memory be eternal!

With love in the risen Lord,

Fr. Jeffrey
