“Some people come into our lives and move our souls to dance.
They awaken us to understanding
with the passing whisper of their wisdom...
they make our world more beautiful,
leave footprints in our hearts,
and we are never, ever the same”
Mrs. Jean Nicoletti
wife of the late Charles
and beloved mother of Dessie, Marie, Noel, Vincent, Lelia and Aidan
Her remains will leave her son Dessie's home at 18 Churchview Way, Laurencetown on Friday 24th May at 5.30pm to arrive at St. Colman's Church, Dromore at 6.00pm
Funeral Mass in St. Colman's Dromore on Saturday 25th May at 11.00am followed by burial in adjoining cemetery
May she rest in peace.
The ceremony will begin inside the church with readings, homily and Benediction. After Benediction the Rosary will be recited and prayers recited for the deceased. You will then be invited to process to the graves for the blessing. The whole ceremony will be relayed through the outside speaker systems at our churches and cemeteries for the benefit of those who do not come inside the church. We ask that you bring a bottle of water with you which will be blessed after the recitation of the Rosary and then members of your family may, at the appropriate time, sprinkle your family grave with the holy water.
To help our parish meet the increasing costs of the care and maintenance of our cemeteries, parishioners and visitors are asked to be generous to the Cemetery Collection.
In preparation for Cemetery Sunday relatives and visitors to our cemeteries are asked to help maintain the sacred character of our cemeteries by ensuring that all rubbish and discarded wreaths are put into the skips or taken away for disposal. Please remember not to put paper, plastic bags or wrapping of flowers into the brown bin. Discarded wreaths at the end of paths or on open spaces spoils the appearance of our cemeteries and increases the maintenance costs.
