St Columba: Like Abraham

Like Abraham words: Before his sword, the Cross of Man’s Redeemer, From hill and glen all evil fled away; Where night so long had shrouded all in darkness, Now dawned the true and holy light of day. Hear us, Columba! Light of Iona! Lead us to heaven across the wide sea; When night is falling, come at our calling, Guide us, bright star, to our homeland and thee. And when at last, to heaven’s rest ascending, He sees unveiled the glorious face of God, Columba still pours blessings down on Scotland, Where once the Shepherd of Iona trod. Hear us, Columba! Light of Iona! Lead us to heaven across the wide sea; When night is falling, come at our calling, Guide us, bright star, to our homeland and thee....

St. Mungo Singers: Requiem Mass 2009

This year, the choir committee decided that we should have our own Requiem Mass for deceased members, to which relatives and friends of the deceased should be invited. The choir is now in its 38th year and inevitably there have been a number of deaths from John Ballantine in the 1970s to Jimmy Fitzsimmons at the end of 2008. ‘Music of ‘May the souls’ (c) Noel S Donnelly. The Mass was celebrated in St. Leo the Great Church on Friday 13 March. It was not a mournful occasion but rather one where the participants took time out to pray with affection for those who have died, with thankfulness for the part they played in their families and in the life and work of the choir and its members, and to take pleasure in the memories. The concelebrants were Mgr. Gerry Fitzpatrick, the Director of the St. Mungo Singers, and Fr. Noel Colford, who has been linked to the choir over many years and is considered an honorary member. Our life-President, John Limond, was able to be present; the choir was led for the Mass by David Harris...
