Mass for Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI

Our pastor, Father Harrison, will offer the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass for the happy repose of the soul of Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI on Wednesday, January 4, 2023 at 12 noon at our twinned parish, Presentation BVM, Cheltenham. Depending on the number of worshippers, the Mass will be celebrated in the main church or in the adjoining chapel.

Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI died on Saturday, December 31, 2022 at the age of 95.

Eternal rest grant to him, O Lord, and may perpetual light shine upon him. May his soul, and all the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.
