Rest in Peace Jack Rees, Faithful to the Last

St Benedict - Pray for Jack Rees
Some very sad news this evening from our local Parish Priest:

"Jack Rees passed on this evening after being fortified with the rites of the Church. His death is our loss but certainly Heaven's gain.

"There will be sacrifice of Holy Mass for the repose of his soul tomorrow [Tuesday] at 8.45am.

"Eternal rest grant unto him O Lord and let perpetual light shine upon him. May he rest in peace. Amen.

"Jack's funeral will be announced later by his family."

Jack was a real hero. He fought at Monte Cassino, the site of St Benedict's foundation of Western monasticism, and had more medals than you would think one person could have! He played the organ in our local parish for many years, until a recent fall.

Please say a prayer for the repose of his soul.
