Remembering our Dead, November 2nd – 10th
The whole month of November can be a
remembrance of our dead, but the Novena
(Nine Days) is a particular tradition we have.
During those days, no individual intention is
taken for each Mass offered.
The Nine Days are for all the faithful departed.
The two weekend Masses focus on those who
have died in the parish since last November.
The timing of each Mass will be familiar, based
on the schedule I have used since the public
offering of Mass ceased.
The Lists you will have left will be placed on the
altar in each Church.
THE ENVELOPES WITH LISTS ARE AVAILABLE IN
EACH OF OUR CHURCHES. 
The graves were blessed on the First Friday and
Second Friday of July this year, as announced in
the NEWSLETTER. However we are leaving a
CEREMONY FOR PRIVATE BLESSING OF GRAVES
in each Church if you would like to take it with
you when you visit.

There are NO PUBLIC GATHERINGS at any of our
cemeteries throughout November, but private
visits are encouraged. I will offer Prayers and
Decade of the Rosary in each of our cemeteries
ONLINE ON FACEBOOK during the Novena. I will
not give advance notice of this but you will be
able access it through the Parish Website.

I will go online every day for Mass on
WATERGRASSHILL/GLENVILLE FACEBOOK PAGE
The times will be as indicated.
Vigil Mass 7.00 pm. from Watergrasshill Church,
Sunday Mass 10.00 am. from
Glenville Church, Mass at 7.00 pm. every
Tuesday from Watergrasshill Church (this
replaces the 11.30 am. Sunday Mass)

The Office continues to remain open at the usual
times with the exception of Thursday evening

Parish Finances
I want to thank you all so much for your
continued support; people with weekly
envelopes and those without them have been
very loyal and I am very grateful. Please pick
up the WEEKLY ENVELOPE BOXES for next year
in each of our churches. Please also consider
joining the WEEKLY ENVELOPE scheme. We may
also have other methods (such as Standing
Order or online payment) which you could use.
We will have more information on these shortly.
The figure shown above is money received in
both Churches since public offering of Mass
ceased.
Thank you all again.
