Dear Friends,

We would like to thank you all for your prayers and expressions of love after the death of Fr Peter on Friday.

We deeply regret that due to current Covid-19 restrictions the funeral can only be attended by close family. However, we understand how loved and respected he was by all, and we would like to provide the opportunity to say goodbye. Therefore, Fr Peter will be resting in our parish church of St Anne’s this week.

Please do visit him on Tuesday 15th, 10am-8pm, or Wednesday 16th September, 10am -2pm.

In order to adhere to current guidelines, you will be greeted at the gate and advised how to proceed, either one at a time or in family groups. While many of us will want to give a farewell kiss, we have to ask that you do not touch his body or coffin directly. Instead, you will be given a small icon of St Peter, that you may venerate in his presence.

Please be aware that you may have to wait while others say their goodbyes. We ask that you wait outside the gates until directed to enter in order to safeguard the residents.

We ask that you please do not bring flowers. However, there will be a collection box for donations to our sister parish in Uganda.

Fr Peter will be buried on Friday and we invite you to light a candle in his memory and we know that you will be with us all in spirit.

If you have any further enquiries, please do not hesitate to make contact with:
