- EDWARD PATRICK O’NEIL R.I.P. Funeral Mass: Thursday 30th July 10.30a.m.
- ERIKA BERTA MATIN R.I.P. Funeral Mass: Wednesday 5th August 10a.m.
The O’Neil family gather this Thursday to lay to rest a much-loved member of the family. Our Requiem Mass starts at 10.30a.m. on Thursday. Eddie was father to five children. His wife Rosemary was called to Eternal Life back in 2009. They were blessed with wonderful grandchildren. The family were close friend with Fr. Joe Gill. Baptisms, weddings and other special moments in the O’Neil family were lived out here at St. Teresa’s. Eddie left for Paradise from his family home with his family around him. His call to meet our Heavenly Father came on 10th July, in his 82nd year.
May He Rest in Peace and Rise in Glory.
Erika Matin expressed a wish to leave life on earth as a Catholic. Her daughter, Anita, and her son- in-law are honouring her wishes. Her funeral Mass will be at 10.a.m. on Wednesday 5th August. Her parents were Swiss. Erika was born in Furtwangen in the heart of The Black Forest in Germany. Erika’s parents blessed her with eight brothers and sisters. In the 1930’s/1940’s she had to ski to school through the forest and mountains in winter. She is survived by two brothers and one sister, living in Germany.
With her husband Abdul, she settled in London in 1961. He was an author and international journalist. We keep Erika and her husband Abdul in our prayers and send out a blessing to all branches of the family.
May She Rest in Peace and Rise in Glory.
Lord Jesus, we love you and wish to prayerfully remember all our loved ones and friends who have been called to Eternal Life. Our parish wishes to reach out to one and all. Please give them comfort and hope and may they be at peace knowing that they will rest in God’s arms eternally.
Thank you for our sweet memories of them and for the good times we shared. Without hesitation we commend their holy souls to your Mercy. We keep them in prayer, in love and ask Our Blessed mother to intercede for them. May they reach their Heavenly destination. May we too stay close to You and may our soul in a state of Grace reach its final resting place. Amen.
