Just a brief note to let parish members know of the passing of Ray Wright. Ray is a well-known and much-loved worshipper at St Mary's, married to Mary and dad to Kerri-anne and Kirsty.
Ray was admitted to St John of God Midland Hospital on Wednesday 6 May, suffering from acute leukemia. He passed away peacefully early on Tuesday, 12 May.
Due to ongoing COVID-19 restrictions Ray's funeral will be by invitation only. I am sure all members of the parish will join me in offering condolences to Mary and to all Ray's family.
Eternal rest, grant unto 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.
