Here is information about the funeral of Fr Ken Leech.
Fr Ken left details of how he would like his funeral liturgies and we are hoping to keep to them as close as possible.
Reception into Church Tuesday 13th October
Fr Ken will be received into St Chrysostom’s Church at 7pm on Tuesday 13th October. All are welcome. Following Vespers for the Dead there will be a Vigil of Prayer for Peace and Justice during which people may come and go. The Vigil will close at 10pm.
For the Vigil: We are inviting friends of Fr Ken, and any others who wish, to send topics for prayer, or prayers to be offered. They can be e mailed to the church office. Prayers sent will be available in the Vigil, and online so that people can also pray ‘remotely.’ Prayer requests of the homeless, victims of human trafficking, addicts, prisoners, the troubled etc. will also be offered.
Requiem Mass Wednesday 14th October
The Requiem Mass will be at 2pm on Wednesday 14th October at St Chrysostom’s Church . All are invited to attend. Ken has left careful instructions about the liturgy and music to be used.
