You have made us for yourself, O Lord, and our heart is restless until it rests in you. -St. Augustine
Because of our belief not only in the immortality of the soul, but also in the resurrection of the body, the Church professes hope in the face of death, and acts with charity in the funeral rites. The Church provides a number of prayers for the faithful to offer both to accompany the dying of a loved one and to strengthen our faith upon their death. Through private prayer and public funeral rites, we strengthen our faith and hope, comfort those who mourn, and bury the bodily remains of the deceased with care befitting what was the Temple of the Holy Spirit.
Please notify Fr. Jim Singler, Pastor, as soon as possible regarding arrangements either personally or through the funeral director. at 330-929-8361 x10.
