Funerals are arranged by the undertaker who contacts the 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 our support and care and support you as much as possible.
If you are mourning a person, or the anniversary of relative or friend occurs, please contact us, and we will pray for your beloved ones and for you. If you cannot come to church, we will lit a candle for the deceased and will be praying for him or her on your request. In our tradition, 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. This is one of the utmost acts of love.
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 heavenn. Because of the communion of saints, the faithful who are still pilgrims on earth are able tohepl 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.
