Bridget Ewing RIP

Please pray for the repose of the soul of Bridget Ewing who died this morning.

May her soul and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.

Bridget lived in Blackfen and was involved in the parish of Our Lady of the Rosary through the whole of her life. Her many responsibilities included preparing hundreds of children for their first Holy Communion over the years, a long-time involvement with the Guiding movement, the Union of Catholic Mothers and the Padre Pio Prayer Group. She was involved in the care of the elderly and housebound as an extraordinary minster of Holy Communion, and assisted in all areas of parish life as the Parish Secretary. Please pray for her family in their loss.

I expect to know the details of the funeral tomorrow. They will be posted here as soon as they are available.
