There will be a blessing of graves at Mount Vernon Cemetery on Monday 6th November at 3pm. We will meet by the chapel and move to your family graves for individual blessings.

Pictured: the blessing of Canon Hannan’s grave at Grange Cemetery on All Souls’ Day. Edward Joseph Hannan was a priest of St Patrick’s for thirty years from 1861-91 and did much to establish it as a new parish church. He is remembered for his tireless ministry to the local poor and support for young men through the Catholic Young Men’s Society and its associated groups (including the Hibernian Club). Requiescat in pace.
