"....When someone passes away, they do not leave, they do not go to another place, they do not go far away. The imagery I would like you to have in mind is that they ascend one floor up. They are here, they are just one floor up. And they are watching us, they are observing us, they are interceding, they are praying for us. I would like to gift you with this message. If you lost someone they did not leave. They are here. They are watching, they are guiding, they are inspiring, they are intervening, they are protecting, they are on the second floor, looking down and watching over you. Don’t ever think they are not here. They are here. They say: thank you, thank you, thank you for all what you have done for me." (J.G.)
Funerals are arranged by the undertaker who contacts our parish. Then we contact you and arrange a family visit or meeting in the church when we can discuss the details of the service. We know that losing a beloved one is a traumatic event and mourning is a very special time. We would like to offer care and support to you as much as possible.
If you are mourning a person, or the anniversary of a relative or a friend occurs, please contact us, and we will pray for your loved ones and for you. If you cannot come to church, we will lit a candle for them on your request.
We believe that the greatest gift we can offer for someone who died is offering the Holy Mass. If you wish to offer this special form of prayer, we will offer the Eucharist for the eternal salvation of your deceased relative or friend - on the day of anniversary or the day when you request.
Why do we pray for our departed relatives and friends?
As the act faith, praying for the dead and offering the Mass is an important, we believe that there is a twofold communication between us and the departed. Though assured of God's friendship and eternal salvation, they still need purification to enter into the happiness of heaven. Because of the communion of saints, the faithful who are still pilgrims on earth are able to help the souls in purgatory by offering prayers in suffrage for them, especially the Eucharistic sacrifice. They also help them by charitable works and works of penance.
