On November 2nd we will have a Requiem Mass at which we shall remember all the souls whose Funerals we have conducted in the past year. The Service at 6.30pm will also remember other departed loved ones, including those killed in Road Traffic Accidents.
The Remembrance theme continues on November 8th (Remembrance Sunday) when we will have an Act of Remembrance for all who gave their lives in war and conflict. The main morning service will start earlier than usual at 10.50am. On November 11th itself Canon Mark Soady will join Cty Cllr John Prosser, Monmouthshire County Council’s Armed Forces Champion for a 2 Minutes Silence at 11am at the Castle.
CANON MARK SOADY, VICAR:
As I get older I spend more time reminiscing , more time remembering the past, but the remembering we are called to do in November is of a different scale. In that Act of Remembrance we are also called as a people to learn from history and try not to make the same mistakes again. I pray we will do that.
