The meaning of death for the Christian is radically different from that of the non-believer. The Christian belief is in a person’s resurrection to eternal life in the Lord’s presence.
The priest assists the family at the time of death with arrangements for the celebration of a scripture service or a rosary, and the Mass of Christian Burial. The Christian community gathers with the family to pray for the deceased, to offer comfort and hope to the family, and to prepare burial. Please call the Parish Office to notify the priest of your needs.
