Condolences & tributes:

Hail, Holy Queen, Mother of Mercy

Hail our Life our sweetness and our hope

To thee do we cry poor banished children of eve,

To thee do we send up our cries, mourning and

weeping in this valley of tears.

 Turn then most gracious advocate, thine eyes of mercy towards us, and after this our exile, show unto us the blessed fruit of thy womb, Jesus.

Oh Clement…Oh loving…Oh sweet

Virgin Mary

“Pray for us, Oh Holy Mother of God…

That we may be made worthy of the promises
