Two Members of the Ordinariate, stars of the ballet world, called to their eternal rest.
Lucette Aldous AC (26 September 1938 - 5th June 2021)
Henry Fredrick William (Bill) Miles (29th August 1941 - 26th August 2021)
It was with great sadness, but also with profound thankfulness for their lives of service, that the Perth Ordinariate Parish has farewelled two of its parishioners in recent months. Both were canonical members of the Personal Ordinariate of Our Lady of the Southern Cross, and both were very deeply connected to the world of ballet here in Australia.
Mr Alexander Lloyd Thompson was baptised and confirmed by Monsignor Entwistle, and received his first Holy Communion, on the Solemnity of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary, 15th August 2021. Alex took as his confirmation name, Christopher, after St Christopher the Patron Saint of travellers. Mr Nigel McBain (Seminarian OLSC) and Mr Thomas Garlick (member of Ss Ninian & Chad Parish) both stood as Alex's sponsors. Alex has been coming to worship with us for over a year and was brought along to Mass by Thomas, and received religious instruction from Nigel and Kelly Clark through the parish's RCIA programme. Alex has also been serving as a sidesman this year and parishioners have much appreciated his volunteering in this capacity. We warmly welcome him further into the life of our parish.
Please pray for Alex as he begins his journey in Christ.
