It’s all happening so fast. No sooner am I back from a hectic Summer than I am having to think about Christmas.

Spent half of my day off preparing letters to everyone related to any funeral I have conducted in the past 12 months, inviting them to the All-Souls Requiem Mass.

32 funerals in the past year. Wonder how many will respond? Last year was good with more than 50 people at the evening mass. You invite and you pray.

It might be a great opportunity for them on their bereavement journey. It might be a waste of postage. I know which one I want it to be.
