Feast of the Holy Innocents

Published on December 15, 2023

On Thursday 28th Dec we celebrate the feast of the Holy Innocents. We remember all the little children who died by the order of King Herod.

On Thursday evening at 7pm we will celebrate a Mass during which we will honour and remember all babies who died during pregnancy, around the time of birth or after birth.

We will honour them by calling their names & lighting a candle. If a name was not chosen we will say “Baby & Family Name”. A book will be placed in the church where the names can be written.

We extend a warm welcome to this special time of remembrance during the Christmas journey.
