St Rose's community pray together - Easter Monday at midday


We are not together as we would wish, but we are never alone. Let's join in prayer together on Easter Monday at midday and celebrate the resurrection of Jesus. 


Let us pray, 

In the Easter Garden the leaves are turning green,

In the Easter Garden the risen Lord is seen, 

In the Easter Garden we know that God above brings us all to heaven through Jesus and his love.

Coronavirus bereavement guides


There are three Bereavement Guides available:

  • A guide for adults
  • A guide for children and young people
  • A guide for parents and carers supporting children that have been bereaved (which can also be helpful for professionals working with children and young people)


These guides have been created in response to the extraordinary events and circumstances that are happening in the UK and around the world because of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) that are affecting how people grieve.  The guides provide basic guidance and helpful links to services that can provide extra support when the bereaved may be cut off from family, friends and usual support networks that would usually give help and comfort at this time.
