Once again we were blessed with a beautiful spring morning for our annual Parish Mass at the Pootilla Cemetery and it was also Remembrance Day, which added to the significance of the day.
A lone piper plus our very talented local musicians – Mary Slater, Majella Muller, Kaylene Rumler, Fiona Boadle and Pat Prendergast – made the Mass even more special with their wonderful music and singing.
Fr Shane Mackinlay celebrated the Mass for the many parishioners and visitors who came to remember family and friends who have passed away. A minutes silence was observed during the Mass for Remembrance Day.
At the end of Mass, it was a wonderful time to catch up with many old friends as they wandered around the cemetery remembering times past and enjoying a hot drink provided by the Coffee Van.
All are more than welcome to come and join us in November 2019. Thank you to Fr Shane for once again leading us in this beautiful celebration and to all those who assisted in the organisation of this Mass.
