Recently, many of our parishioners have chosen to pre-plan their funeral liturgies as part of their general end of life planning details. Knowing these details have been discussed and decided brings great comfort to all family members involved.
If you have been considering it, please contact our Pastoral Associate, Margie Benza, at the parish office at 248-2427. We have pre-planning packets for your review and we consider it a privilege to sit with you in planning these details.
