Catholic in Yanchep

The joy of the gospel fills the hearts and lives of all who encounter Jesus. Those who accept his offer of salvation are set free from sin, sorrow, inner emptiness and loneliness. (Pope Francis, Evangelii Gaudium)

Our condolences to Peter and Christina

We extend our deepest sympathies to Peter and Christina Even on the loss of their daughter, Ruth Anne-Mary Even.  Ruth was a beloved member of our church in Yanchep.  Ruth passed away peacefully on Thursday, 11 August, in the arms of her father.  Ruth’s funeral Mass will be held at St Anthony’s Church, Wanneroo at 10.15 a.m. on Thursday, 18th August, followed by a burial service at Pinnaroo Memorial Park on Whitfords Ave.

Christina and Peter have been beautiful witnesses to their faith through their love and care for Ruth over many years – and their wonderful family is such a sign of God’s goodness!

Rev. 21:4  “He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be morning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.”

Eternal rest grant unto her, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon her!

Ruth-Even-2
