“I am the resurrection and the life,” Jesus says to us, giving us comfort and hope in time of sorrow. In Our Lord Jesus Christ we have found one who has conquered death itself. The funeral liturgy of the church is the privileged place of encounter with the Lord. The Mass is offered on behalf of our loved one and we are filled with strength and hope for we know that the Lord’s love is total.
Through the "Funeral Planning Guide" you will find help to plan the funeral liturgy of your loved one. Some families find it helpful to pick out the readings and songs that will be used for the liturgy, others may choose to just have the priest or minister choose those readings. Families are invited to fill out as much or as little as they choose.
Once you have completed the packet please call the office at 740.342.1348 to schedule a meeting with a priest or deacon. He will meet with you to finalize your selections. Please do not hesitate to call us for any questions or concerns during this time.
Together as the church, the body of Christ, we shall gather to worship the Lord in our time of sorrow and express our Hope in the promise of the Lord.
