Fr Jim writes: This weekend, we
celebrate the feast of All Saints, when
we rejoice over our family & friends who
are now in heaven. Monday is All Souls,
when we pray for the dead who may not
“yet” (in our human understanding) be
in the full glory of heaven. For most of
us who have lost many family members,
this is very comforting idea. There is an
extra Mass on Monday, at 7pm, to allow
you to offer Mass for your dead friends &
relatives. At the back of the church is
the ’Book of the Dead’, which includes
parishioners who have died since Nov.
1st last year. You are invited to add the
names of those for whom you wish us to
pray. This book is brought to the altar
at the offertory procession at each Mass

took a purse from her handbag to pay him. She produced a £10 note (the usual taxi fare for that run) and he
told her he was the vicar. At the that point she replaced the note in her purse and took out a coin. She said:
