Our Parish open air Mass at the Bungaree (Pootilla) Cemetery began with the remarkable sound of the bagpipes on a beautiful warm sunny morning on November 12, 2017.
Fr Shane Mackinlay celebrated Mass on the cemetery grounds together with many parishioners, their families and visitors to our Parish.
Over 160 people joined in the Mass for our third year of remembrance for friends and loved ones who have passed away, to coincide with All Souls Day.
A lone bagpiper, together with our local singers and guitarists Mary Slater, Majella Muller, Kaylene Rumler and Pat Prendergast, provided beautiful music throughout the Mass.
Members of the congregation were in no hurry to move on as they had the opportunity to enjoy a coffee or milkshake from the coffee van and the opportunity to walk through the cemetery with their families sharing memories of their loved ones.
Thank you to Fr Shane for leading us in a special celebration.
Come along and join us in November 2018.
