Finding peace when you’ve experienced the death of a family member or friend can be difficult. Likewise, it can be hard to console someone who has lost a loved one. We need comfort and prayers, and want to do something meaningful. Flowers are beautiful, but short-lived. How can we help keep alive memories of a loved one who has died?
We’re not helpless in the face of our grief. Having a Mass celebrated for a beloved person brings comfort and consolation. You can schedule a Mass for the person’s birthday, the anniversary of their passing, or around a holiday. His or her name will be announced at Mass and printed in the weekly bulletin as a lasting remembrance. But most important, a Mass – the highest form of Catholic worship – will be said for the deceased’s soul and our congregation will pray for him or her.
You can also have a Mass celebrated for a living person, including yourself. Occasions might include illness, thanksgiving for a blessing, or any other special intention.
To arrange a Mass, please stop by the Parish Office next door, call us at 201 434 0768, or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. The donation is $20 for a weekend Mass or $10 for a weekday Mass.
