Parish Office, 943-4353
In the book of Tobit, Tobia fulfilled God's command and a work of mercy by going about at night and burying the dead. We are all called to the Corporeal Works of Mercy, including "Bury the Dead." Burial is important, in imitation of the Lord, as it points to the Resurrection. Often, at funerals there are few people in attendance or a majority of non-Catholics. Parishioners are needed to help out at funeral simply by attending, participation, and fulfilling this work of mercy. By signing up for this ministry, you will be notified of an upcoming funeral via an automated system. If you are available to attend, then you come to Church on the specified time and day to help support the family and to pray for the deceased. If you cannot attend, you can simply pray for the deceased..
