St John's Parish War Dead

 

Lest we or those who follow us shall forget...

And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes: and Death shall be no more. Nor mourning, nor crying nor sorrow shall be any more: for the former of things are passed away. (Apocalyse XX 1-4)

To the Glory of God and to perpetuate the memory of the soldiers and sailors of St John the Baptist Parish who gave their lives in the Grat War 1914-1918. The High Altar, Holy Communion Rails, sets of vestments and the Memorial Tablet were initiated and provided by parishioners 1922.

 From a plaque erected 1993:

Also, in Memory of those who died in the Second World War

O God of truth and justice, we hold before you those whose memory we cherish, and those whose names we will never know. Help us to lift our eyes above the torment of this broken world, and grant us the grace to pray for those who wish us harm. As we honour the past, may we put our faith in your future; for you are the source of life and hope, now and forever.

Amen
