Dear Friends,

The Bishop has instructed each parish in the diocese to offer a Requiem Mass for the repose of the soul of her late majesty Queen Elizabeth II. For us, that will take place at the 9.15am Sung Mass at Our Lady of the Rosary. In addition to praying for the repose of the soul of those for whom we offer the Mass, the special readings and prayers of the Requiem Mass focus our attention on prayer for the departed, and the hope of the Resurrection.

The Accession Proclamation will take place at Carfax, Oxford on Sunday 11 September at 1.00pm: do join me in walking up there after the 11.15am Mass.

God bless,

Fr Daniel
