Sad News: Death of Peter Bayfield

Peter Bayfield (Husband of Maureen) died on  4th April 2013 around 12.30 am at home in Exbourne. Please pray for his repose. May he rest in peace.

I was privileged to be in their house at 1.00 am to do the prayers for the dead and stayed with Maureen until (2.30 am) her son John arrived.

Peter is 84 years of age, still use to go to Church with Maureen almost on all Sundays until recently.  I found him always cheerful and optimistic.

He came on skype on last Sunday during the Mass for a short while.

As we continue to pray for the repose of the soul of Peter, We as a parish convey our condolences to Maureen and her family.

The details of his Requiem mass will follow soon.
