Pope Benedict XVI RIP

POPE BENEDICT XVI We are saddened by the death of Pope Benedict
XVI. His funeral was celebrated in Rome on Thursday. Bishop Declan will
celebrate Mass for Pope Benedict at the Cathedral on Tuesday 10th January at 11am. A Requiem Mass will be offered at St Mary’s on Tuesday at 12.10pm. Pope Francis said, “His acute and gentle thought was not self-referential, but ecclesial, because he always wanted to accompany us in the encounter with Jesus.” May Pope Benedict rest in peace and rise in glory. Let us give thanks to God for his Petrine ministry among us.
