The annual OA Mass of Remembrance takes place on Saturday 12th November at 12 noon at St. Augustine's Abbey Church, Ramsgate to which you are invited and most welcome to attend.

Our Chaplain, Canon Brian Coyle is Presiding and Students from the Ursuline College will read out the Roll of Honour, followed by the Last Post and 2 minutes silence. Tribute to OA Michael Thunder will be given by Peter West, OA Archivist.

After the final Blessing, there will be the Blessing of Graves, firstly Michael Thunder then the monks and others requested. Finally, the Laying of the Wreath at the OA War Memorial with prayers and a blessing by Fr. Brian.

At the end of the service all are welcome to light refreshments in the St. Augustine's/Pugin Visitors Centre where the Presentation of Gifts will be presented to St. Augustine's Visitor Centre and to the Ursuline College.

There is no charge for this gathering but there will be a collection to St. Augustine's Church during Mass.

For those who wish to, we are going for lunch at Raushan's Ramsgate Tandoori Restaurant afterwards. If you would like to come, please email Richard at so we can give numbers to the Restaurant by Friday 11th November. We shall just pay for ourselves.

Do hope you can join us on this special day...
