The Funeral Mass will take place on Monday 23rd May at 12.15pm at Holy Trinity church, Brook Green. Bishop Paul McAleenan will preside and the homily will be given by Fr Tony Pellegrini. Burial will be at Mortlake Cemetery at 2pm.

Fr Tony was a member of the Deceased Clergy Association. 

We pray for the repose of his soul:

Grant, we pray, O Lord,
that the soul of Fr Antony, your servant and Priest,
whom you honoured with sacred office
while he lived in this world,
may exult for ever in the glorious home of heaven.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
God, for ever and ever.


May his, and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.
