I am the Resurrection and the Life, says the Lord. Whoever has faith in me shall have life, even though he die.[John 11.25]
In the days before a death occurs, at the time of death, and in the days that follow, there are many rites that our priests are available to provide as part of the pastoral support offered to family members and friends.
They will come to be with family in the home or the hospital to offer anointing and prayers; at the time of death and following the visitation at the funeral home or church prayers can be offered to acknowledge the death to give thanks for the life of the deceased, and to seek God’s comfort.
Our priests, musicians and staff can help you develop a funeral service, at a funeral home or in the church, that gives thanks for the life of the person who has died and reminds us of the resurrection hope that is ours in faith.
Some members take time, while they are in good health, to meet with one of the clergy to plan their funeral liturgy and have the details on file at the church office and shared with their family. Family members find this a great comfort and makes decisions at the time of death easier to make. If you would like to explore this option, please contact the church office (416-922-4948).
