On Sunday 1st November, Bishop Brennan will lead a Service to dedicate the month of November as a month of Prayer and Remembrance for the Dead and for the Comfort of the Bereaved at 3pm in St. Aidan’s Cathedral, Enniscorthy.
The service can be viewed online at https://www.churchservices.tv/enniscorthycathedral
Many parishes in the diocese will also hold their own Service.
“This year, the month of November, in which we traditionally remember the dead and pray for the bereaved, will be particularly poignant. We sense a huge yearning for consolation and hope in the heart of our people. We are especially mindful in 2020 of those grieving families, who, because of restrictions, have been unable to experience the customary spiritual and community supports which are so much part of our Irish tradition. On 1 November at 3.00pm the bishops and priests of Ireland will lead a short service of prayer to dedicate the month of November to ‘Remembrance of the Dead and Prayer for the Bereaved’. We invite the whole country to unite in this moment which will be followed by parish liturgies throughout the month of November, reaching out as much as possible to those who cannot be physically present”
