With great sorrow we have to announce the death of Deacon Joe Rogan.
Joe will be received into our Sacred Heart and St Gilbert's Church in Bourne on Monday evening, 30 March. There will be a Requiem Mass at 6pm. Joe will rest on the Altar, where he served so faithfully for so many years, all night. The next day he will be taken to Bourne Abbey and his funeral service there will begin at 1.15pm. Permission has been given by the Bishop of Lincoln for a full Catholic Requiem Mass to take place in this beautiful and ancient Abbey. The Acting Bishop of Nottingham has also given his permission for Joe's Catholic Requiem to take place in this Anglican Church and he, Monsignor Tom McGovern will be the main Celebrant.
Joe's burial will take place in the Bourne Cemetery
We would all like to extend our sympathy to Joe's family.
