Dear Legionaries and Friends,


The funeral arrangements for Fr Eugene McGrath are as follows. I encourage you all to attend either or both liturgies.  

Vigil Rosary and Mass in St Pius X Paterson St Manning at 6.45 Rosary. 7pm Mass Wednesday 8th August 2018

Funeral Mass in the Redemptorist Monastery Vincent St North Perth at 1.00 Thursday 9th August 2018 

Our much loved Fr Eugene McGrath was peacefully taken into his heavenly reward on Thursday 2nd August, at his home at the Little Sister's of the Poor in Glendalough. Fr Gene, as he was known to many, was a very faithful Spiritual Director to several Praesidia. He was also Spiritual Director of the Perth Senatus, travelling to the monthly meeting from Merredin only retiring from this position because his hearing was failing. Father continued with his support of the Legion by attending our Annual Retreat and many of our Annual Masses. Although his hearing made it difficult to hear he would quietly sit with us and offer prayers for the success of the event. Although his gentle guidance will be missed by many I am sure he will be watching over us all. 

Rest in peace dear Fr McGrath and may we all reassemble when the battle of life is over. Legionaries of Mary

The Legion will hold a memorial Mass with full Legion of Mary prayers in about a month as our tribute to him and his love of Our Blessed Mother and her Legion.  More information on this will be sent out at a later date.
