With deepest regret, the Parish of Our Lady of the Wayside announces the passing this morning — Wednesday 12 October 2011 — from this life, around 5.30am, of Reverend Dick Descroizilles, deacon of the same parish. Deacon Dick was 78 years old (born 7 April 1933). He was fortified by the rites of Holy Mother Church, and departed his beloved wife, Elfrieda, and family, into God’s eternal peace, after some months of grave illness. He will be deeply missed by Fr Simon Donnelly, the parish priest, and by the entire parish of Maryvale. May Dick rest in God’s eternal peace. Requiem eternam dona ei, Domine, et lux perpetua luceat ei. Requiescat in pace!
The funeral Mass for Rev Dick Descroizilles will be celebrated on Saturday 15 October, at 11.30am, at Our Lady of the Wayside.
