On Saturday there will be a sung Mass of Requiem at Markenfield Hall near Ripon (HG4 3AD) at 11.00 a.m. for the repose of the souls of those members of the Markenfield family who were directly affected by the results of the the Rising of the North. As always some monks of Ampleforth Abbey will chant the Mass which will be offered by Father Creighton-Jobe of the London Oratory. We are always grateful to Lady Deirdre and her family for allowing us the privilege of hearing Mass in their beautiful home. The last time we were there we celebrated the late addition to the 1962 missal in the form of the Mass for St. Rose of Lima, where the chapel is home to a relic of this saint.

Pauline Sutcliffe RIP

Of your charity pray for the repose of the soul of Pauline Sutcliffe who was a regular attender at Broughton Hall over many years and who died last Saturday. Below is the obituary which will appear in the Catholic Herald later this week (with my emphasis):




On July 29th, peacefully in the Friary Hospital, Richmond, N Yorks aged 88 years, of Castle Bolton, N Yorks, formerly of Bredfield, Suffolk. A much loved aunt and friend. A Latin Funeral Mass will take place at Sacred Heart Chapel, Broughton Hall, nr Skipton, N Yorks on Tuesday 8th August at 12 noon followed by interment at Waltonwrays Cemetery, Skipton. Family flowers only please, donations if desired will go to MacMillan Cancer Care (plate in Church) or may be sent c/o Sanderson & Co Funeral Directors, Leyburn Business Park, Leyburn, N Yorks, DL8 5QA. Will friends please meet at the Church. RIP
Pauline was a surprising person in many ways and I don't think I've ever met anybody who had been an air hostess and a headmistress. Any child in trouble or passenger in distress would have soon calmed down in Pauline's presence. May she rest in peace and rise in the glory of God.
