Blessing of Graves

Please see below two videos of Prayer Services that took place before the blessing of graves in Coosan and Cornamagh Cemeteries today, the Feast of the Lord’s Ascension into Heaven.

Our four priests, Fr. Declan, Fr. Padraig, Fr. John and Fr. Pierre, went to say prayers in both cemeteries this morning. Earlier this week Bishop Francis and the Council of Priests had advised that no Cemetery Sunday Masses should take place this year on account of Covid-19, but that priests should say prayers in private at the cemeteries and share those services through social media.

We continue to pray for the good health and spiritual well-being of you all at this time and that our loved ones gone before us, and all the faithful departed, rest in peace of Christ in heaven this day. Amen.
