Many of you will know Dorothy Shields from the Leeds Rainbow group. It is with great sorrow that I have to confirm that Dorothy Shields has passed away yesterday. May she rest in peace. I have spoken to her nephew, Phil, who used Dorothy’s facebook page to let people know. Many names Dorothy had asked to be informed had no contact numbers. Dorothy’s Requiem is planned for Wednesday 20th December at 10.45am at the Church of Christ the King,
Christ the King Church
Leeds LS13 2DX
We remember Dorothy in our prayers and pray for the repose of her soul.
We will offer Mass for Dorothy at the next Covenant Mass on Monday 18th December 2017 at the Shrine.

Welcome to our Covenant Mass this Saturday, 18th November 2017 at 7.30pm at the Shrine followed by refreshments. The Group preparing the Covenant Mass is the Emmaus Group, Celebrant: Fr.Reginald and the music group from St Edmund’s will accompany us. During this year we have thought about what Pope Francis has said to us about the joy of love in the family.Theme: Living our faith in the Family: For “man cannot live without love. He remains a being that is incomprehensible for himself, his life is senseless, if love is not revealed to him”.(Redemptor Hominis §10 in AL§161). We also pray for all our deceased members and for all the faithful departed in the month of November. We remember particularly Arthur Hamilton from the St Michael’s group, keeping Edith and the family in our prayers. You are invited to bring a donation for our food and cloths bank. This time of year we look for warm socks, gloves and wooly hats. Look forward to welcoming you on Saturday.
