St. Edmund’s Memorial Service Sunday 4th November at 6.30pm

We would like to invite you and members of your family join us at this special service. We hope it will provide the opportunity for those who have lost a loved one to remember them in their prayers, to light candles, to feel closer to God and hopefully find peace. The occasion will also offer a time to talk or, if you prefer, a time for quiet reflective prayer. During the service, the name of your loved one will be read out in the prayers.
