Question 225

Good evening father I hope you are well , wanted to ask my father passed away on the 6th January and we do his memorial in the last Sunday before Christmas- as Christmas eve is on Sunday are we still able to do it on the 24th this year?

 

Answer to Question 225

 

Yes, but why don't you do it nearer the date on the Sunday after Christmas 31st December?

Because my grandmother always said no memorials are done between Christmas and phota on the 6th?

 

Reply

No she was probably confused with the Easter period where we donít do memorials from Lazarus Saturday until after Thomas Sunday
