We have loved them in life; let us not forget them in death [St Monica]
During the month of November we are especially mindful of our loved ones who have died. Many parishes arrange Masses in memory of those who died during the year and to remember all who are buried in local cemeteries etc.
We in the Society of African Missions (SMA) are also mindful of our deceased members – seminarians, brothers, priests and bishops – as well as our family members, members of other groups we have worked with (particularly the OLA Sisters) and our many supporters who have departed from this life.
Last year and this year, due to Covid-19, we are unable to invite family members to attend the Mass in Dromantine, Newry. However, you can join in the Mass via webcam which Fr Damian Bresnahan SMA (Community Leader) and the SMA community will be offering for all our deceased.
In the grounds of Dromantine there is a memorial to all those SMA members from the ecclesiastical Province of Armagh
The Livestreaming will begin shortly before the Mass.
