Cemetery Mass 2016
On Sunday, July 31st there was a very large turn out for the annual Cemetery Mass in Straide’s New Cemetery. The weather held fine for the occasion (unlike in the two previous years when the weather was so bad that Mass had to be celebrated indoors instead). Thanks to all who attended, to all who set up and to all who participated.
