The Faithful Departed at All Saints:

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
These past days we have learned of two deaths in the Church Family. Graham Hawkes departed this life early yesterday morning. Our thoughts and prayers continue for Graham and his partner Gerry who survives him.  Graham’s Funeral, High Mass of Requiem will take place at All Saints Margaret Street on Monday 26th November 2:30pm. 
 
Also Bishop Kenneth Cragg, former assistant Bishop of Jerusalem and Bishop of Egypt departed this life yesterday.
 
On the 24th November at 12noon we have the Requiem Mass for Teresa Butler a worshipper at All Saints for many years.  
 
1st December at 12noon, there will be a Requiem Mass for Christopher Rawll, a devoted servant of All Saints and the wider Church in London. 
 
We continue in the Season of All Saints, giving thanks to God for all the faithful departed who have served and are now at rest.   All are welcome to attend these services, giving thanks and offering prayer.

O what their joy and their glory must be,
those endless sabbaths the blessed ones see;
crown for the valiant, to weary ones rest;
God shall be all, and in all ever blest.

Fr. John
