Mass of Remembrance, 21st of November, St Mary Magdalene Church, Sea Road, Bexhill-on-Sea at 10am followed by refreshments.
During November, the month of remembrance, we take time to pray for those who have died and give thanks for loved ones who have made a deep and lasting impression on our lives.
Over the years, CAFOD has been blessed to work alongside the kindest and most committed friends any charity could hope for. The insight, faith and strength of our founders and early supporters still shape our values and way of working today.
But one of the saddest aspects of growing older, as individuals and as an organisation, is that some of our closest friends have passed away in recent months and years. In our own diocese we have lost a number of friends who have played an inspirational and important role in our work.
Friends like Denis Lucey, who lived in Bexhill-on-Sea.
A tireless campaigner, he was a familiar site in Bexhill, London and elsewhere raising awareness of climate change and numerous other situations and injustices. He helped raise awareness of CAFOD for many years in the parish and has contributed much to our work and therefore the lives of many people throughout the world.
So in celebration of our inspiring friends, and as a small token of our appreciation for their years of kindness and dedication, CAFOD Arundel and Brighton will be holding a memorial Mass on the 21st of November at St Mary Magdalene Church, Sea Road, Bexhill-on-Sea at 10am. The church is just opposite the railway station which makes it ideal for visitors coming by train.
All are welcome to join us, whether to remember fellow CAFOD supporters or members of your own family, friends and community who’ve passed away. At our memorial Mass you can take precious time to remember your loved ones, knowing that you’re among friends.
A book of remembrance will be presented and blessed by the celebrant at Mass. If you would like to add a name to this list you would be very welcome; whether or not you can attend the service itself. Please get in touch with our office at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 01483 898 866 if you’d like to know more.
Refreshments will be provided after the service, so we hope you’ll be able to stay on for a while to speak with other local CAFOD supporters and staff. It would be wonderful to see you at such a special event.
