You will notice that Mass on Friday, 18 th January, in Holy Name is at 10.00 as it is the funeral Mass for Nicholas Larkin. I did the funerals of Nicholas’s parents just a few years ago. His dad had looked after his mum at home for a long period before she died and then in a relatively short period after she had died Michael, Nick’s dad also became ill and died. Some of you might remember Michael as he was a driving instructor. The family mourners will be only a small group so I encourage anyone who is free on Friday morning to come and support the family with your presence and prayers.
