The mass will be open air,weather permitting.This is a day for all families to join together and remember our missing.During the mass families who have someone missing will read poems especially written for the day.There will also be singers and musicians.As the mass ends white homing pigeons are released as a sign of our missing coming home.The vigil will then begin around Our Ladies Island,the cross is carried as pipers play a lament.It is a very moving ceremony and hopefully you can all attend.There will be refreshments afterwards in the local hall.The walk around Our Ladies Island is buggy friendly.
