Dear Brother Knights,
We have just celebrated Thanksgiving and I hope all of you enjoyed the beautiful Day. We have so much for which to be thankful.
By the time that you receive this bulletin, we will be preparing for the three days of Hallowe’en, All Saints Day and All Souls day. November is the month when we commemorate the faithful departed.Over the last year, we have had a number of Knights pass away. .On November 2, we will have a memorial service at 7:00p.m. at Immaculate Conception Church. This is a time when we not only remember the deceased Knights but all the faithful departed from our cluster who died over the past year. It is also a way for us to support the families that are grieving the loss of their loved ones. I hope as many as possible will attend this service.
As Christians, we believe in the doctrine of the Resurrection.It is the central doctrine of our faith. Life for us is changed not ended.Belief in the Resurrection gives us hope and at a time of sadness, there can be joy because of our belief. In our wake service, we say the old order has passed away, welcome the person into paradise where there will be no sorrow, no weeping nor pain but the fullness of peace and joy with your Son and the Holy Spirit for ever and ever.Surely this gives us hope. I want to assure you of our prayers and support through your time of grief.
I want to thank all of you for what you do for our faith community and the wider community.May God bless you and your families.
Fr. Dick Bester
