“They whom we love and lose are no longer where they were before, they are wherever we are”.
The families and friends of those members of the Blackrock College extended community that passed away in the last twelve months were comforted by our Remembrance Mass last Wednesday evening. It was a truly moving liturgy, deeply appreciated by those bereaved.
“The tomb of the dead is in the heart of the living”
