They shall not grow old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.
As Remembrance Services start to take place around the country and Commonwealth, we too here in Haverfordwest and Narberth call to mind and pray for those who have given their lives for our peace and freedom. We will remember them at every weekend Mass.
When you go home, tell them of us and say:
“For your tomorrow, we gave our today.”
