Rita has been a member of St Andrew’s congregation for many years and helpfully communicated her wishes before her death. In spite of Covid restrictions we are able to follow her wishes in most ways.
On Wednesday 21st October her body will be received into St Andrew’s church. This happens within Vespers of the Dead but this will not be a public service.
On Thursday 22nd October we will celebrate a Requiem Mass for Rita at 11am. All are welcome to this service up to the number of 50 people risk-assessed for the building. Preacher will be The Revd Canon Karen Rooms.
The actual funeral and committal will take place privately at Gilroes Crematorium after the Requiem.
