The whole country is filled with sadness at the news that two young people lost their lives in Derry. They are members of the Syro Malabar catholic church in Ireland that have a community here in our own parish. We would like to extend our deepest condolences to all of the Syro Malabar group and in particular the family and friends of Joseph Sebastian (16) and Rueven Joe Simon (16). Ar dheis Dé go raibh a n-anamacha (May they rest in peace).
We would ask everyone to include them in your prayers so that in the word of Archbishop Eamon Martin “the healing presence of Christ ease the immense heartbreak in the family home, school, and parish”.
