Note from our musical director, Anthony Dickinson.

Of your charity please pray for the repose of the soul of one of our regular parishioners, my dear uncle, Richard Neil Bibby, aged 86. Neil died in Chorley Hospital fortified by the Rites of Holy Mother Church in the early hours of Saturday, 20th May surrounded by his loving family. Neil was an active parishioner here at St Catherines from the early days and helped on the physical building of the church when Fr Burke was sent to establish a parish, here in Farington. Neil was born in Leyland but moved to Euxton at the outbreak of WWII to be with extended family whilst his father was away in the army. He returned to Leyland at the end of the WWII and attended the old Leyland St Marys school and church. Neil moved back to Euxton when he married his wife Monica in 1964 and where he raised his family. He started attending St Catherines again when Fr Simon arrived and became a weekly 11:30 Mass attender. Latterly he attended the 8:30 Mass on Sunday. He was in reasonable health until he suffered a stroke in September last year, at which point his health started to deteriorate. He was last here at St Catherine’s for Novena and Benediction on Candlemas Day. Monica and family wish to extend their grateful thanks and prayers to all who have asked after Neil over recent months and, since his death, for the kind Mass offerings and expressions of sympathy. Neil will be buried at Euxton St Mary’s following a Requiem Mass this coming Wednesday, 31st May 2023 at 12:30 p.m. Those who knew Neil are more than welcome to attend.
