The liturgy for the dead is an Easter liturgy. It finds all its meaning in the resurrection. Because Jesus was raised from the dead, we, too, shall be raised.
When the death of a member of the parish occurs, please contact the St. Francis clergy as soon as possible. Arrangements for funerals are made by the family and clergy in consultation. If the family desires, other clergy may participate in the liturgy by the invitation of the clergy at St. Francis.
