On Sunday last the community gathered in warm November sunshine to bless the new Parish Columbarium located beside the Calvary in Saint Mary’s Cemetery. This was one of the major projects taken up by the Parish Finance Committee this year to mark the 150th anniversary of the church.
We thank Niall Smith of Niall Smith Architects, John Tully of Tully Memorials and Gerard McKenna of McKenna engineering who carried out the project over recent months. This new facility will give families further options for the interment of loved ones in the parish. May all our dead rest in the gentle embrace of God.
