Jesus, be near to us.
On behalf of St. Helen Parish, we wish to extend our deepest sympathy to you, your family and friends for your loss. As you enter these days of mourning and preparation for the funeral of your loved one, please know that we will walk with you and assist you on this journey, not only in preparing the funeral liturgy, but in the days to come.
Please contact the funeral home first. The funeral home of your choice will make arrangements with the Parish to schedule the Funeral Mass.
In the Roman Catholic funeral liturgy, there are three rites that are normally celebrated: the Funeral Vigil, the Funeral Mass, and the Rite of Committal.
A bereavement minister will call to meet with you to explain these celebrations and will help you plan for the various rites appropriate to your circumstances.
If you have any questions please call Mel at 937-254-6233 or email her at email@example.com
