Memorial Mass for Mary Berry RIP
Mary was a Parishioner for many years in STM .You will remember her arriving just a little late and taking a seat in the front row. A number of years ago she moved to Dean Wood in Woodingdean. It now appears she died sometime in June. Her niece who lives in France has arranged a Memorial Mass for Thursday 4th November at 11am in our Church .This will be preceded by the Burial of her Ashes with those of her husband John at the Downs. There will be just a few friends from London so it would be a kindness if you could come along for the Mass.
