Of your charity, please pray for the repose of the soul of Fr. Anthony Cornish who died on the Feast of the Annunciation.
He had been our Parish Priest for many years, heard our older childrens' first confessions, gave them their first Holy Communions and arranged their preparation for the sacrament of Confirmation. Fr. was a major influence in the spiritual development of their early years.
Our eldest disabled son was a teenager when he was ready to make his first Holy Communion; he was unable to consume a host (we practised without success using some unconsecrated hosts), and it was Fr. Cornish who arranged for him to receive his first and subsequent Holy Communions by receiving the Precious Blood from the chalice, using a silver teaspoon.
Eternal rest grant to him O Lord
And let perpetual light shine upon him
May his soul and the souls of all the faithful departed
Through the mercy of God
Rest in peace
