“For if we live, we live for the Lord, and if we die, we die for the Lord; so then, whether we live or die, we are the Lord’s. ” (Romans 14:8 NAB) When people whom we love die it hurts. We often are so overcome with grief that we don’t know where to turn or even how to feel. We think of the loved one who is now dead and at one moment we think of the wonderful things they did in their lives; the next moment we are weeping uncontrollably because … because… we don’t even know why. We just know it hurts. How do we deal with our grief? How do we say goodbye to someone whom we love so deeply.  We have a funeral.     Funeral planning is available at anytime by calling our parish office.  We will guide you through the process and help with the contacts for local funeral homes in the area and also do pre- planning for funerals. If you would like to speak with a priest, please call our parish office at 924-7705.
