Members of the St. Mungo Singers joined long serving member, tenor Tommy Smith, his family and the parish community at All Saints parish for the funeral of his twin sister, Eileen on 5th November. The funeral Mass was presided over by Parish Priest Fr. David Brown.
In his homily Fr. Brown remembered Eileen as a very quiet, humble person whose life had been centred around her family, looking after her elderly mother for many years, and who had done things quietly in the background for the parish. She had prayed particularly for the Holy Souls each November, and today it was for the congregation to pray for her.
The music of the Mass was uplifting. It included “How Blest are those who have died in the Lord…for their good works go with them”, “Just as Jesus died and rose”, “I am the Bread of Life” the Final Commendation & Farewell, and the final hymn “O Lord, my God!” , all reminders of our faith in the life to come.
