The death of one of a loved one is a significant event for us. It is a time when we, who loved the deceased person, mourn our loss. It is a time when we, your Community of Faith, celebrate God’s gift of life and mark, with special rites and gatherings, the return of that life to our loving God. It is a time when the we earnestly seek to minister with compassion not only to the deceased but to the living which includes their family, friends, and faith community, as well. PEACE and LOVE!
