Remembering our Benefactors and Friends in Prayer
On the evening of Wednesday 10th November, a solemn Mass for the Dead was celebrated for departed benefactors and friends of Aid to the Church in Need at Our Lady of the Assumption and St Gregory, Warwick Street, London. This month especially, our thoughts and prayers are with all our dear friends who mourn loved ones, as we commend the Holy Souls to Christ in the hope of the Resurrection. Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord.
